ORLANDO — A San Diego County husband and wife are suing an Orlando timeshare company, alleging fraud.
Cordarell R. Grider and Kelsey M. Grider filed a complaint Nov. 6 in Orange County Circuit Court against Westgate Towers LLC, alleging the timeshare company breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 16, 2016, the Griders attended Westgate Towers' timeshare sales presentation in Las Vegas. The suit says the Griders, enticed by Westgate's misrepresentation, have sustained financial loss, including the principal amount, installment payments and maintenance fees paid under the timeshare purchase agreement for property in Florida.
The lawsuit says Westgate misrepresented the nature and extent of the benefits, with intent to induce plaintiffs to purchase a timeshare.
The plaintiffs allege Westgate Towers misrepresented that the timeshare was a real estate investment and would increase in value over time, and misrepresented that there was a significant resale and rental opportunities and that the Griders will profit.
The Griders seek trial by jury, actual damages of more than $15,000, injunction, rescission, civil penalty, attorney fees and all relief as justice requires. They are represented by attorney Brendan A. Sweeney of Sweeney Law PA in Fort Lauderdale.
