Hello, I wonder whether you have any experience/knowledge of the Wimpen Leisure Management group for ElMarques in Tenerife. We owned three weeks at this resort which were purchased in 1995. Wimpen created a holding company so members could transfer their ownership at a cost (we paid £1000) to this holding company if they no longer wanted their timeshare. We did this and have received a letter confirming this relinquishment and stating that we have no past or future responsibility. This week I have been contacted by a legal company advising me that this may not be legally binding and offering to legally relinquish us for a cost of £6/7000. This has freaked me out and I don’t know who to turn to. Can you help?

I have a timeshare in Malta. My question is, I have paid 2020 maintenance fees of £980 but couldn’t go last year due to the pandemic.
I want to book a week in October and they won’t confirm the booking until I pay 2021 maintenance fees.

Can they do that? Because I have paid for the week I want. And also they say I have to take 2021 weeks this year which I can’t. But they are holding me to ransom for £980 in order to take a week I have already paid for.

Please could you tell me if they can do that.

Bought my timeshare 17yrs ago for £22k this was for a 1 bedroom apartment. I pay around £700 a year as a maintenance fee. The Porto Mare in Funchal is a high-quality place but I do wonder if our purchase was completely legally correct through RCI. We would prefer to get it off our hands now. RCI has advised that to sell would not be recommended.

Hi I’m a Marriott timeshare owner in Andalucia, Spain

This 2020 since I did not deposit it immediately to interval they only give me 6 months

I can’t travel abroad were 4 in the family and besides were health care workers.

I did try to sell it many times but its too difficult to sell it

Next year I’m gonna pay again the maintenance in which I have not used my 2020 and 6 months only given for me to look for a holiday

They should be considerate

Next, can you help me sell it even I will get about 75 percent of the £11000 pounds I paid

Pls advise.
