An 81-year-old widow and her family are fighting one of the world’s largest timeshare developers in a onslaught to keep their Orlando townhouse.
The two-story townhouse condominium owned by Julieta Corredor remained station this week right next to the construction site of Westgate Resorts’ eight-story, 80-unit timeshare tower.
The developers accused Corredor and her family of a “charade” designed to remove some-more income from Westgate for the house. Yet the family is deliberation a lawsuit.
“It is the land and it’s the property, and we were never asked to do anything by Westgate on it, and they did whatever they did but the consent,” Corredor’s son Carlos Corredor said.
The Corredor family has used the 1,125-square-foot townhouse for honeymoons, family vacations and college housing given shopping it for $154,000 in 1985. Family profession Brent Siegel declined to plead their negotiations with Westgate.
The dispersion of the formidable once surrounding the townhouse to make way for the $24 million building incited the Corredors’ residence uninhabitable. A “Danger No Entry” sign ornate a wall circuitously the front doorway this week as workers banged divided at the new structure circuitously set to open in June.
A Westgate executive pennyless sections of the home’s red tile roof during the dispersion and tore off the before connected section next door. A blue tarp covered one side of the home.
“They’re trying to be the holdout and go for the money,” pronounced Westgate arch handling officer Mark Waltrip. “Hopefully they’ll stop the sham and start behaving responsibly.”
Westgate executives pronounced they offering to reconstruct the section onsite or elsewhere and supplement $50,000 in furnishings. They also due a $150,000 cash buyout or a allied section in a new building, but the Corredors have deserted any idea, according to the company.
Orange County commissioners voted down an interest by the Corredors last month that would have forced Westgate to rip down its project, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
The commissioners had revoked their initial capitulation of Westgate’s plans after training the company did not own all parcels on the growth site. The company also didn’t secure the correct permits before its executive achieved the dispersion work.
Yet the commissioners after gave the immature light to Westgate’s plans again after the company revised them.
“This has been a formidable one to watch … Mistakes were made,” Commissioner Scott Boyd said. “I feel at this indicate there’s not a whole lot that we can do. The options have been laid out flattering clearly.”
