A Norwegian man recently won a lawsuit in the Supreme Court in Madrid after having sued the timeshare company Anfi del Mar.
In the court’s decision on July 1st it stated that the Norwegian’s contract with the Norwegian-Canarian company is invalid, writes Canaria Journal.
The man was awarded close to 300,000 million plus interest in damages. In addition the company was ordered to pay his legal costs.
This is the third case in the Supreme Court where a Norwegian timeshare customer has won against Anfi.
According to the Journal, the company has in the past sixteen months lost at least 40 lawsuits in this court in Madrid and in the provincial court in Las Palmas.
– We are, as always, available to discuss any questions and / or information with our members individually about their situation. We can not comment on this further now. We are waiting for final decisions before we proceed. Our legal department is currently studying the cases, wrote the communications director Ruben Reja of Anfi del Mar in an email to the Journal.
The European Consumer Council wrote that each year it receives hundreds of complaints about timeshares and holiday clubs where people feel duped into signing agreements they regret. The Consumer Council also warns the public against such contracts.
Anfi del Mar is a resort on the southwest side of Gran Canaria operated by Anfi Group. The facility consists of four holiday clubs with around a thousand houses.
