I've been advising prospective timeshare purchasers for a LONG time on the questions that they need to ask before jumping in.
Those questions involve such things as:
* what is the five year history of the annual maintenance fees
* how sold out is the development
* how is the HOA structured
Now however, I find out that there is another question that needs to be asked. This question is so unexpected that I admit that I was shocked.
Here it is:
"If I purchase this timeshare, am I waiving my rights to enter into a Class Action lawsuit against the developer?"
Yes, you read that right. It seems that a certain timeshare developer includes that somewhere in the morass of 974+ pages of documents that no one (other than themselves) ever reads.
How underhanded do you have to be to know how underhanded your business practices are and prohibit owners from suing you in a Class Action lawsuit?
It's a new low as far as I'm concerned.
