We go by the title Tess Law as the full name is somewhat cumbersome in the day to day dealings.
TESS is a Limited Company identified by or Company Registration Number 937200 and operates from its owned Registered Office located at Coniston House 3 Beach Rd, St Anne’s on Sea, in Lancashire, England FY8 2NR.
We came into existence in January 2016 by the will of The Timeshare Association (as it is known now) which was previously called the Timeshare Consumer Association Ltd [TCA]. To avoid any doubt the Timeshare Consumer Association website was sold off to Tolmex Ltd on the 2nd of February 2016. At the time the Timeshare Association was under pressure to have removed defamatory statements made by the timeshare industry particularly TATOC and by selling of the TCA website, enough money was generated to pay the necessary legal costs to protract the litigations without troubling our services. That case was successful and TATOC became insolvent and were unable to pay the monumental damages Tess were awarded.
In January 2016, ‘Timeshare Association’ changed direction to fulfil an ever-increasing role of proving low cost-effective services to consumers who had a need to challenge timeshare resorts with a view of obtaining a termination from what many have described as an onerous contract.
The ‘Timeshare Association’ assists many clients who needed fairly priced options, controlled by ethical principles and by experts who were not encumbered by relationships with resorts and sellers of timeshares.
As a result of that need, the Timeshare Association [TA] created Tess Law which came into existence to further the services of the TA.
With that in mind, Tess Law was engineered by a “not for profit” organisation and operates asserted by an ethical community organization.
The ‘Timeshare Association’ is now controlled by Mrs Sofia Mazzola with her team and she has dominant control. Tess Law is governed by Mr Tanveer Karn and they are both assisted by Mr Cox who is an unpaid governor and hold the guarantee which permits both to operate.
Tess Law is consumer driven does not employ anyone who has been involved with the selling or management of any timeshare resort, maintains its independence and employs only those who are committed. Tess Law firmly believes those assisting in timeshare legal matters should not be “those who sold the contracts in the first place” and deplores the gamekeeper/poacher style services.
We offer many services, all of which involve some type of investigation, pre-litigation consideration, pre-ligation engagement correspondence with resorts, as well as working with regulated firms, so as to deliver strong and winnable compensation cases.
We retain a large clients list which now numbers over 2,500 people all seeking to either terminate what they perceive as onerous contracts or claim compensation. To date, Tess law is delivering over a 1,000 compensations claims and in a variety of legal arenas which seek to have returned to its clients over £10 million.
The International Claims Department
This department is handled and headed up by Miss Jenkinson who is multi-faceted and enjoys being an active member of legal faculties.
The financial Claims Departments
These claims are reserved for Mr Karn who with a team of Paralegals investigates, collates and prepares many hundreds of claims against financial institutions in the UK and compensation claims in Sapin.
The Department is known for handling difficult cases, whereby the Limitation Act of 1980 has to be overcome. Such requires considerable indulgence, and consideration, so as to correctly establish a liability exists.
Support Service Department
This is the main thrust of the services which Tess Law provides, and once a client, you will be in safe hands. When contesting resorts, on occasion some ignore the reality and try to override the legal processes in preference to issuing demands supported by dubious demands. Despite this being (in some cases) an unlawful practice, it can contravene your statutory rights thus, we assist you and to assert and reassert your rights.
When a termination has been complete, Ms Tripper will answer any question you might have and will continue to deliver advice in line with her aftercare plans.
Once the termination letters have been dispatched, Ms. Trippier and her team will maintain your records into the future and until her clients have secured an exit.
Finance Department and Office Management
With all Companies and corporate structures, you need a steady hand on the “tiller” and this role is fulfilled by our Director of Financial affairs Mr David Parry who ensures budgets are maintained, money is retained and any and all payments to others are distributed fairly, on time and in accordance with their terms and conditions.
This department takes instructions, appoints lawyers and tasks them to carry out topical research on a certain issue which consumers complain off. These tasks can and do take many months to complete and when complete, a report is compiled, served on the Directors who then disseminate the information in booklets form to complaining consumer. The reports are also supplied to others for comments which provides a foundation for the many contentious matters.
Tess Law via Litigation funding has extended the service it offers and assists in insolvency issues and in an effort to recover money owed to Debtors.
