On Monday 9th November, an Arona court official and barrister entered Beverly Hills Club “The Suites” hotel and took possession of apartment G005. Armed with a court order and accompanied by a locksmith – they successfully changed the locks, carrying out the sentence passed by the court a few weeks earlier in September.
Excel Hotels and Resorts S.L. – the company which was managing the apartment, was defeated in court in September and did not appeal the court´s sentence. The owners, Mr and Mrs Sneddon took legal action against them with the help of The Nordic Consulting, a legal consultancy based in Los Cristianos Tenerife. They submitted their complaint to the court on the 17th November 2019 and are delighted to have already resolved their problems.
The Sneddons are now able to use their apartment when they wish without additional charges from the hotel. Local estate agents say that the apartment is worth significantly more, now that is free of the onerous rental contract with the hotel.
As far as we know, this is the first repossession of an apartment from Excel and we hope that it is the first of many!
If you have problems with the hotel managing your apartment – rest assured that you are not powerless and the Spanish courts are not turning a blind eye to your plight. Feel free to contact The Nordic Consulting to find out what action you can take.
