FAQ 21: What are timeshare trustees?

When a consumer purchases timeshare, they purchase ‘occupancy rights’ in respect of certain holiday accommodation belonging to the developer.  The nature of the ‘occupancy rights’ is defined in the timeshare contract.

The most common structure for timeshare in the UK, and also used in other parts of Europe, is the ‘Club-Trust’ structure which is handled by timeshare trustees.

Further information on this can be found in TATOC Consumer Guide 33 here.

The other common timeshare structure, known as ‘escritura’, (meaning “deed”) is sometimes used in Spain and Portugal whereby the consumer is given an ‘escritura’ (or title deed) as proof that he/she is the owner of a particular week or weeks in a specific property. This can be registered at the local Land Registry and is similar to house buying in the UK as it guarantees your ownership rights.
