Manhattan Club Lawsuit

Irene, do you know ifany of the 28 units are penthouses? When I called TMC to discuss the lawsuit they told me that the penthouses are NEVER rented out to transient people. Do you know if this is true?

Manhattan Club Lawsuit.....maintenance fees and REAL ESTATE TAX

Each year, when they email me my bill, the tax amount is broken out on the bill. They specify what portion are maintenance fees and what portion are taxes.

The 28 units purchased by Bluegreen from what I was told are mainly on the second floor.

I saw the AG on Good Morning America today. All I was thinking about what about the TMC lawsuit that has gone on for far too long. He sent in undercover agents who heard the deceptive sales pitches. He should have done something to resolve this. We should flood his Twitter and Facebook with comments.

When I was working there we would rent out the penthouse suits to transients and sales department would upgrade transients that purchased to penthouses.

On "With All Due Respect" last night, Schneiderman pointed out that he's been working on the Trump U. case since 2012 and entered the suit in 2013. It is just getting publicity now because Trump is Republican presidential candidate. Bottom line is that these things take time. Trump U. is NOT moving faster than his lawsuit on TMC.

hi tonya,

what else can you add to the scheming and shady dealings used by the principals, headed by ian bruce eichner, at your former employer, THE MANHATTAN CLUB? your (even anonymous) input would be worthwhile in assisting nysag schneiderman's winning the case against THE MANHATTAN CLUB. we look forward to seeing more of your firsthand information presented here.

YES, these things take time, esp. if you have lots of money and "good" lawyers which both Eichner and Trump have.

I AM GLAD THAT YOU HAVE SPOKEN UP. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED. PEOPLE WHO HAVE INSIDE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED WHEN WE AS OWNERS TRIED TO SECURE RESERVATIONS. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF TO MAKE IT KNOWN. ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET, AND WE NEED IT NOW. THIS LAWSUIT WILL NEVER SUCCEED UNLESS MORE PEOPLE ARE MADE AWARE OF IT, SPEAK UP, AND START TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. AGAIN, THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT

Thank you for posting these excellent directions - it all went smoothly the first time I tried it. Everyone should do this because, as Irene said, it will then become obvious that many people have an interest in this case.

I think you would get a lot of attention to the Manhattan Club issue if all the owners would notify their Congressman or Congresswoman of their State for their assistance I did, and he forwarded the copies of the publicity surrounding the unhappy owners complaints to the Attorney General of my State. The assistant to the AG of my State sent a letter to the Manhattan Club and requested an answer to these grievances. When and if I receive a response to this action of mine. I will publish it in the Forum. I would also remind all TMC owners that this is an election year. This is the time to ask your elected officials for their help.

Manhattan Club Lawsuit.....maintenance fees and REAL ESTATE TAX

TMC's financial department will easily give you, the individual yearly amount you are paying toward real estate taxes. PLUS each year, when they form the next budget, there's a chart generated showing the next year maintenance fee & real estate fee, for each size unit, with the increase percentages. You should (maybe) be able to get this emailed to you, as they do email it as part of the yearly budget. Lastly, you can find out what they are actually suppose to be paying in total taxes, as assessed property taxes are public records. This might take a little research via the NYC assessors office.

Manhattan Club Lawsuit-Early Maintenance Fees

Lots of folks are complaining about TMC demanding early payment of maintenance in order to book dates.

Check your contract anniversary date. That's the date your next maintenance payment is due. Your annual maintenance is PREPAID. Once your current year's payment is made you are ENTITLED to use your days/weeks for the coming 12 months, until your anniversary date, when the next maintenance payment is due. Requiring an owner to pre pay NEXT YEAR'S maintenance in order to reserve this year's usage days is outright thievery. What's next? You can't use days unless you prepay 2 years maintenance!

Demanding that owners make payments before they are due is just one other example of how we are all being screwed by TMC.

ITS TIME FOR EVERYONE TO STOP PAYING THEIR MAINTENANCE.

If you keep paying, you are funding TMC's fight against us and the AG.

The problem is that if an owner wishes to bank his week with Interval International or RCI, the Manhattan Club will not give the "booking" info. until the maintenance fees are paid in advance. So, they are going to make sure they get hold of your money.

Hi Bob Biello -- I just this morning received a text message from my Amex credit card company that TMC is making a merchant charge of $2,289.86. I called Amex and told them I contest the charge because, although I recognize the merchant, I have no receipt or breakdown of what the charge is for. I can GUESS that it's maintenance fees and property taxes for 2017-2018 (I have a 2-year, split week Metro that I can use every year -- 3 nights in even years, 4 nights in odd years). The last time I paid this high a total bill was in April, 2014 in the amount of $2,151 (RE taxes were $100). In 2014, Accounting's description was for "2015 Maintenance Fees in Mass Bill". RE taxes I have to pay every year, and it varies because of the 3-4 usage -- RE taxes are based on the number of days I'm entitled to every year. As for why I am being billed now, in June 2016 and not on my purchase date (March of 2011) is a mystery to me. I plan to have Amex contest the charge. Amex said they will ask TMC for proof that I owe the charge. Meanwhile, because I notified Amex as soon as I received the text notification, Amex will hold up TMC's receipt of payment. This could tie TMC up for 6-8 weeks to get their money. My questions to you are: 1) should I contact Accounting and ask for the breakdown/explanation, and if I'm satisfied I understand what I'm paying for, I should pay the $2,289.86 charge? or 2) NOT pay anything more until all the legal investigations are resolved. My only issues with TMC have been this poor accounting and erratic billing, plus escalating maintenance fees. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Jills 465, My advice to you is to inform AMEX that you are cancelling the automatic permission you gave the MC to pay for the maintenance fees. This way when your fees are due tmcy will send you an itemize notice. Keeping the automatic permission will guarantee your fees are going to be charged MONTHS before your anniversary.

Every year I get a bill via email about 6 months before it is due. I write back and kindly point out that my bill is not due for another six months. I don't hear from them again and I don't pay until I am ready to pay. My bill always has the maintenance fees and taxes clearly broken out. I also make it very clear on the phone and in writing that when I pay my fees, that the credit card number I am giving them is for a one time purchase only, not to be kept on file and they write back confirming that this is understood. I continue to pay my fees because I continue to use and enjoy the club.

Did anybody read about the judge's ruling? There's an article in Timesharing Today. I was checking here to see what people think it means, besides being good for us. Nancy Wilson

Manhattan Club Lawsuit-Early Maintenance Fees

don't trust anyone at the manhattan club. DO NOT PAY MAINTENANCE OR TAX VIA CREDIT CARD (IF YOU CHOOSE TO PAY AT ALL). PAY BY CHECK: ONE CHECK FOR MAINTENANCE CLEARLY MARKED AS SUCH, AND ANOTHER CHECK FOR REAL ESTATE TAX, AGAIN CLEARLY MARKED FOR THAT PURPOSE. i would not put it past TMC to keep your credit info on file, even without your knowledge. who knows, they might be getting desperate, even though their bravado remains in place..............a good tactic to try to beat the system. mr madoff got away with it for an number of years before it and his conscience caught up with him, and the walls came tumbling down, along with his bravado!
