Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
The club that actually owns the timeshare lodges does have the power to cancel or suspend membership for a number of reasons, including non-payment of monies due. The Club can impose a surcharge upon defaulters and sell the week(s) concerned. However, it is not clear how the process would actually work or whether there could be recourse to law or debt recovery. Obviously, the ideal solution would be an amicable cessation of membership with all charges paid up to that point.
The contract is written under Scottish Law.
In addition, I understand that the hotel upon which the lodges are reliant for many facilities is up for sale, although the timeshare club itself is not, as it is a separate entity.
Thanks for your reply, you are confirming what I feared.
One last point concerning the second part of my question: is there a legal way to ensure that this liability does not get passed on to members of my family who may be beneficiaries of my will?
Thank you. Not neccessarily what I could have wished for, I was hoping for a get-out clause in an E.U. directive or something similar.
However, your advice is clear and seems sound to me, you have provided the best information on this matter that I have received so far.
