How Do I Cancel My Westgate Timeshare Contract in Austin?
(1) Contact Westgate Resorts
One option is to contact your resort to see if you can self-negotiate an exit solution directly with the company. Your resort developer, management company, or property owner’s association may have a deed back, or timeshare cancellation program already in place. Keep in mind that your options may be limited once the state-mandated rescission period has passed. You may want to request in advance all cancellation terms and conditions as well as fees that may apply for deed relinquishment.
(2) Rental and Third-Party Resale
Many Westgate Timeshare owners in Austin attempt to rent or sell their own vacation intervals, using an online marketplace such as eBay or other rental platforms. Be sure to read the Westgate owner guidelines, rules, and restrictions regarding renting and selling your own timeshare. One specific restriction you should pay attention to is your resale rights.
The developer has limited your resale rights. Any future purchaser (other than a transfer as the result of death, divorce or to an immediate family member) who buys your timeshare interest from you will have severely limited opportunity to reserve occupancy in this timeshare plan.
Owners may also look to third-party resale companies to attempt to sell timeshare. We advise that you steer away from upfront online advertising firms that hold themselves out as resale companies. Many of these secondary market companies have no resale licensing at all and typically only apply for a telemarketing license as required by various state laws. If you choose to look at resale, check eBay or other websites that show actual sales of timeshare resales and not just listings. Many timeshares can be bought and are sold for as little as a dollar on the secondary market. Other types of companies that operate in the resale marketplace are travel club and trade-in/transfer groups. These companies are not directly connected to Westgate Resorts and owners should also use caution when considering using any of these services. Regulatory warnings are issued frequently about the above types of timeshare relief companies and those specific services offered.
