Title: Jurisdication
Post by: seager64 on May 13, 2020, 17:07:45
Hi.
Could anybody explain how McDonalds are threatening to instigate legal proceeding against owners for non payment of annual maintenance fees in UK courts for Spanish resorts. When Spanish courts have already ruled they have jurisdiction over property in Spain. Surely any owner would only have to have the case transferred to a Spanish court for it to fail due, if it broke timeshare law.

Simply put. It is not McDonald's who are pursuing owners it is the club represented by - McDonald's

As the club is domiciled in Scotland and the consumers either live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland  -the jurisdiction is in the countries where - the consumer lives. If they live in Spain - that will be the jurisdiction.
