For many consumers who are ready to end their timeshare contract, the idea of freedom from your timeshare may seem too good to be true. By the time our clients receive a free consultation, many have already gone several ‘rounds’ with their resort management company. It is a stressful, aggressive and frustrating experience for most people, and it feels like going in perpetual circles, without making any progress.
There is no shortage of companies that are looking to help consumers who need to cancel their timeshare. They understand that increasing maintenance fees and other considerations can place significant financial strain on owners. The stakes are high when an owner is having difficulty paying membership and maintenance fees that they can no longer afford, only to see statements monthly that the bill is exponentially going up, thanks to late fees, non-payment charges and other expenses that resort membership companies charge.
Because of the relationships that we have with our clients, we also know that timeshare resale services plague owners with a promise of an ‘easy exit’ only to charge more fees, without successfully helping the consumer sell and transfer the contract to another buyer. It’s a downhill slide when consumers try to fight against their timeshare contract, and there are many fraudulent service providers willing to take advantage of the need to cancel. It can start to feel like a no-win situation.
At Aconsumercredit™, we’ve heard hundreds of stories that are both shocking and not surprising, when it comes to the aggressive, and unfair way that timeshares treat customers, who simply want out of their contract. We want our prospective clients to know what they can expect at each step of the cancellation process, and we are transparent in our effective methods, as an attorney led team.
If you are wondering how it works, we’ve outlined the process in five steps to explain how our team advocates for our clients to get a resolution, while making our best effort to avoid any negative consequences on your personal credit, because of timeshare cancellation.
Step 1: Free Consultation
Before we can begin working for a client on their timeshare issue, we must understand the nature of the contract, and other details about the individual case and resort membership provider. Depending on the terms of the contract, we will be able to estimate how long your timeshare cancellation may take, and provide a quote on our service fee.
In the free consultation process, it is important to share all the details with your cancellation counselor. We have more than a decade of experience helping consumers cancel their timeshare contracts, but each case may have unique circumstances that can make the process take a little more time. Our average is twelve months or sooner, for a successful timeshare cancellation service.
The free consultation is available during business hours (EST) Monday through Friday, by calling 1-800-587-EXIT. You can also chat live on our website to ask questions before scheduling your free consultation. Once you’ve decided to use our timeshare cancellation services, you will be asked to sign a contract with us that outlines the terms and cost of our services.
Step 2: Documentation and File Review
Our in-house team of timeshare cancellation experts will acquire copies of your contract, and other documentation needed to represent you against the timeshare. This may also include providing copies of correspondence from the developer or resort management team, statements regarding accruing or overdue fees, and any legal statements that have been issued by the timeshare.
Once we have gathered the documentation, we do a complete file review of your case, and contact you to discuss what we think are your best options and approach for timeshare cancellation. Our team works to keep the client constantly updated with actions taken on their behalf, communication with the timeshare, and progress on the cancellation process.
Step 3: Documents Are Processed to the Timeshare
We petition on your behalf to the timeshare, and this requires attorney and title review. You will be provided with these documents to read, and then sign to start the cancellation process. A formal letter to the timeshare company must be provided, which outlines the intent to exit the legal contract, and the client is provided with all copies of the official notices and correspondence between Aconsumercredit™,, and the timeshare.
Step 4: Transfer Documents Are Filed
The appropriate legal documents are filed through the county clerk office, and the developer is provided with paperwork and transfer documents, which are filed according to requirements. At this stage, the portion of the portion owned by the client, is deeded back to the resort or vacation membership club.
It is important to note that any loan that was acquired to make the purchase payment for the timeshare, is not able to be canceled. Consumers will still have to resolve the loan debt and payments with the private third-party lender.
Step 5: A Handshake and Congratulations
Aconsumercredit™, will contact the client to confirm that all records and deeds have been filed according to requirements, and a written confirmation of timeshare cancellation is provided to the client. Our clients receive a congratulatory phone call or email from our staff, to thank them for choosing our team to assist with their timeshare problem, and to congratulate them for being officially “timeshare free”.
