My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.

Expert:  Leon replied 7 months ago.

There is usually no cooling off period unless the contract states it. Once the money is given to you that is it you have to pay it off and you cannot back out.

If you have not received the money you can terminate the contract and back out. But if you have been given the money then you have no choice but to proceed with it.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further have a great new year and

The vacation club conditions state 7 days cooling off period so to me the loan would not be settled until the 7 day cooling off period expires is this correct
Expert:  Leon replied 7 months ago.

Good Morning.

No vacation club is the contract to purchase the shares or the time share not the loan. The loan is a separate matter.

You can terminate the vacation club contract under the cooling off but the loan is not under that. If you have not drawn on the money you can terminate and they may charge you an early termination if is it a fixed interest rate. If it is like a personal loan you will only be charged the finalisation fee. There are 2 contracts one for the loan and one for the vacation club.
