Beware of Selling, Donating and Transferring Timeshares

Beware of the traditional means of ridding oneself of an unwanted timeshare is through a sale, donation or transfer.

On the subject of selling a timeshare, many unwary timeshare owners seeking to rid themselves of their timeshare fall pray to listing companies that propose to list their timeshare for sale. Such companies have been under investigation by state Attorney General’s for fraudulent and deceptive practices and a proposed timeshare seller wishing to sell his or her timeshare obligation should first consider selling their timeshare by listing it on sites like eBay or Craigslist.

Other options are to list it through the developer, if the developer handles re-sales, or through a timeshare resale broker. One thing the proposed timeshare seller should not do is pay an advance fee for the sale of their timeshare. It is these advance fee practices that have fallen under the scrutiny of state Attorney Generals.

Another frequently discussed solution to the problem of how to be released from your timeshare’s financial burdens, is to donate the timeshare. Where there once were a number of organizations that accept deeded-timeshare donations, with the ever increasing burden of maintenance fees which seem to go up every year, such organizations are a vanishing breed.

Transferring ownership to a third party who will merely take over the yearly maintenance obligations is another exit strategy.” These persons, however, won’t pay you for the timeshare and in many cases the timeshare company will simply refuse to recognize the transfer or alternatively impose onerous resort transfer fees making the transfer to a third party prohibitive for those faced with financial difficulties.
