Many Brits want to secure a place in the sun, and historically timeshares were an attractive option to most people for this reason.
Timeshare ownership offered members exclusive accommodation, on an annual basis at a variety of different locations for a cost which could be spread out by a monthly repayments.
The problem with historical timeshares, in particular, is that no one knew exactly what they were buying into or for how long. Even more concerning is that most people have no idea how to ‘get out’ of a timeshare or what their rights are in relation to this. Often timeshare agreements provide no mechanism for individuals to unilaterally resign from their membership. Once members of a resort, the only way to terminate your own membership is by selling or transferring the points/weeks to a third party. This is near impossible to achieve.
The result is that now several years later thousands of people find themselves burdened by a timeshare that they no longer wish to use. Many people are worried about passing timeshare obligations on to family members in the event of their death and even more are concerned about increasing annual maintenance fees.
