Areas of Misrepresentation


Misrepresentation is a false statement of fact made by one party to another party, which has the effect of inducing that party into the contract.

So if the resort did not uphold to their expectations at any point that means they did not hold up to their end of the agreement and we may terminate the contract.

If you were never told that the contract may be reviewed by an attorney for a minimum of 30 days, the resort violated your rights. The resort salesman are not attorneys and are not qualified to go over contract details with you, an attorney must have been present. If you were not told of the cancellation period of a minimum of 3 days, then they violated your rights. Salesman approaching you with some sort of incentive to attend a 90 minute presentation.

High pressured sales tactics and misrepresentations to make the timeshare sound more valuable than it is, claiming it as an investment or that it might be a tax right of.

The 90 minute presentation extended passed a period of the 90 minutes the salesman said it would. The closing was rushed that day. Claiming the property as an investment or that one day you may be able to sell it or rent it.
