No win, no fee claims against barclays for timeshare finance

11 replies 181 views
Does anybody know a firm that could take our case on. We took out a vacation club membership with club la costa in Spain 9yrs ago. It was a points system in perpetuity. It crippled us financially so we tried to get out by visiting a number of firms who wanted money upfront. Money we couldn't afford. Eventually my partner was so sick of it so we agreed to take out a loan to pay the last people we saw. They said they could only get us out of the contract and not claim compensation  but advised us to go to another firm. I have tried to contact a few firms on no win, no fee claims but they tell me i have to still be paying the maintenance fee which we stopped 3yrs ago. We still have the original loan with barclays and have been told we have a claim against them, we just need a company to take us on no win, no fee.

    If you have a valid complaint, why do you need a 3rd party company? Lodge it yourself

    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)

    Why not send your complaint to them directly?  Paying someone to post a letter for you seems an expensive indulgence.

    What is your complaint against Barclays?

    The courts have ruled that loans for timeshares are illegal and so compensation can be claimed

    So put that in writing to Barclays as part of a complaint and claim whatever compensation you fee you’re entitled to.

    So are you claiming against Barclays who lent the money to give to the claims company or did they lend the money to pay the Timeshare?
    Are you out of the timeshare yet?

    That search doesn't return any results stating it was illegal to lend money for timeshares. It would be an unusual ruling.

    Can you cast any more light on it?
