No, that's my point.

Unfortunately, it does not appear to be in the online version, but the Daily Herald story on this subject today said " '...the SMTA told The Daily Herald it “strongly disagrees with the press release and plans to issue a comprehensive statement” soon'. "

As per the group represented by Monique Beamon, it did not address any of our concerns with having Alegria abide by the terms that the timeshare condos were sold for. There is no trading rights, so if you pay your maintenance fees for the year 2015, they will try to put you on some other resort on St. Maarten, no where else. He can still cancel this agreement at any time. So it looks as if it stayed the same as the original offer. So if you do not wish to use your unit this year, it sounds that you still have to pay maintenance fees with no compensation for doing so (RCI or extra week for following year). Still sounds like a bad deal for all the owners

I agree, I don't really see where anything has changed. Before, I understood that those who are planning to stay THIS year would have to pay their AMF AGAIN, in order to stay this year. Has that changed at all?

The timeshare owners lose their right to trade into RCI or any other group, but it appears that the new ownership is still giving you the right to use your units..IF the maintenance fees are paid up. For people who bought into the resort with the plan to use it exclusively at the resort things look like they really havent changed...but if someone bought it for the ''trading power'' to go other places..well..those are the losers. I am glad the government and timeshare group are lauding themselves on this ''victory'', but it appears basically the same agreement that was reached before the meeting.

The letter clearly stated the Alegria is a HOTEL and if you signed the letter and sent in the equivalent of your MF's ( 1 weeks for example) you could stay at the HOTEL ( 1 week) for that rate ( which in my opinion ain't a bad price) .

Maybe we're missing something here, but it sure looks the same as before. But, as I reported earlier, the Daily Herald story today says that the SMTA does NOT agree with the press release and will be making their own statement, so we'll see what they say.

Link to a discussion by Soc on the radio this morning regarding the situation.

Fast forward past the first 2 minutes for the start of the conversation.

And also the "persons in the meeting" can only work with the laws now in place or lack there of)it is just rhetoric. So IF they can get new laws implemented ( maybe 2 years down the road) MAYBE they will be retroactive.

Like I said before "You don't think the bidder didn't have a TEAM of local lawyers telling them what their right were or weren't" ?
