Can I Cancel My Timeshare?
Whether due to a change in lifestyle, a change in financial situation, or simply a desire to get out of their mounting payments and fees, many timeshare owners, in time, find themselves in a situation in which they no longer wish to retain ownership of their interest.
This leads to a very common question among consumers: “Can I cancel my timeshare?”
Our own Michael Finn recently took on this important question in a video interview, which you may view below:
And here’s a transcript of his remarks:
“The answer to that question is: ‘sometimes.’ But, generally speaking, if you’re past your rescission period you’re going to get a battle from the resort.
The best thing that you can do – if you find yourself in a position where you can’t or don’t want to continue with your obligation – is to contact your resort and be candid with them and tell them that you no longer can continue with the obligation and ask them if they can help you with a way to cancel your timeshare.
If they refuse to give you any help at all, your next step is probably going to be to hire a professional that is familiar with this kind of a contract. I suggest an attorney, and I suggest that it be an attorney with a lot of timeshare experience, because this is a field of law that not many attorneys get involved in. So I do recommend at that point in time that you get an attorney to have you navigate through this very, very difficult and legal process.”
