Did You Know The Salesperson Sold You the Timeshare, Not the Resort?
When you acquired your timeshare, it's important to remember that the salesperson works for the timeshare resort- not for you. The salesperson's job is to sell timeshares, and they will do whatever it takes to close the deal.
To earn their commission means that they may withhold important information about the timeshare or downplay the potential liabilities.
Salespeople for the resorts are independently contracted and have signed indemnity agreements protecting the resort from any damages caused during the sales presentation. For this reason, salespeople risk their jobs by withholding information for their financial benefit.
98 % of Timeshare Owners Never Read Their Contract
Many timeshare owners fail to read their purchase agreement before signing it, which means they don't understand their contractual obligations. If you find yourself in this situation, it's important to reach out to a law firm focusing on timeshare law.
Timeshare lawyers can help you understand your rights and options, and they may be able to help you get out of your timeshare.
How to Get Out of Timeshare Contract Using Timeshare Lawyers
Skilled timeshare lawyers craft compelling arguments by redirecting the emphasis to the salesperson.
They must employ two discourses in order to do so effectively:
The first is that you likely failed to read the vacation ownership contract.
The second is that the salesperson purposely withheld information for their financial benefit.
Through these narratives, we can reassign accountability and eliminate the responsibility of timeshare developers.
5 Potential Claims You Can Make Against The Salesperson.
1. Timeshares Are Not Property
Salespeople often portray timeshares as a profitable form of real estate investment. However, in truth, they are exclusive memberships that solely grant you the authority to utilize the developer's resources. You are not actually buying into property ownership but rather obtaining points or weeks for use.
3. Ongoing Increase On The Maintenance Fees
The third issue frequently brought up is that of maintenance fees which, unfortunately, often experience a yearly hike between 7-10%, allowing for a doubling in the required payments every decade or so. Sadly, salespeople often fail to inform consumers that the cost of maintenance will increase annually at a rate higher than inflation.
5. Legal & Financial Consequences
For Breach of Contract
The fifth claim related to potential legal and financial repercussions for breaching the contract is particularly relevant. Many timeshare buyers purchase fractions of real estate. Through their membership, these individuals acquire exclusive access to properties owned by developers, in addition to allowing guests and other members usage rights as well.
In the event that an individual fails to satisfy their financial obligations related to vacation ownership, they may be taken to court and sued for breach of contract. The courts could potentially rule in favor of the timeshare developer with a judgment on both loan balance and projected maintenance fees accrued by said resort.
Maintenance fees can amount to more than the debt in several scenarios. Resorts may conclude they will be losing out on thousands of dollars in potential revenue – $30,000 or even beyond that! Luckily for them, with a judgment, they have the legal power to put liens on your material possessions and take away part of your wages.
2. The Resort Reserves the Right to Deny a Request to Sell Your Timeshare Interest.
Before you can sell your timeshare, the loan must be paid in full, and your account cannot have any outstanding arrears. Additionally, you'll need to acquire written permission from the developer before selling it; they may reject or approve based on their qualification process. The clause in all timeshare purchase agreements is called "The Right of First Refusal."
4. Heirs May Inherit Your Timeshare
The fourth theory worries many, particularly parents; sales representatives often suggest that the timeshare can be transferred to family members through a will or added to an existing trust.
When you buy a timeshare, it is important to remember that it is not an actual piece of property. Rather, it's an exclusive membership with its own conditions and responsibilities, which also extend to your heirs should anything happen. This can be seen in the purchase agreement itself, as all members agree to allow the resort to pursue any financial obligations under the vacation ownership contract if needed.
It is inconceivable that a parent would purchase a home, thereby obligating their descendants to assume mortgage payments.
Timeshare Cancellation: The Process of Using a Timeshare Attorney
When you're thinking about timeshare cancellation, it's crucial to have an experienced timeshare attorney on your side. Hiring a timeshare attorney can help guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected if you're looking to end your timeshare contract.
Suppose you're thinking about getting rid of your timeshare. In that case, the first step is to establish if the salesperson withheld the short and long terms liabilities to you during the presentation.
To prove the salesperson withheld the information on your own can be tricky.
Still, experienced legal counsel will know how to investigate and build a case against the salesperson.
Hiring a Timeshare Attorney Will Help You With The Following:
Prove That The Contract Was Unfair Or Deceptive
In some cases, timeshare contracts can be unfair or deceptive. Suppose you believe that your purchase agreement falls into this category. As a timeshare owner, an experienced timeshare attorney can help you if you feel you have been induced. They will review your case and see if they can provide evidence to back up your claim. If they believe you have a strong case, they will work with you to get the relief you deserve.
Attorneys Will Negotiate With The Timeshare Company
You'll need to negotiate with the timeshare's management company if you're trying to rescind your agreement. Negotiating on your own can be a complicated process. Nonetheless, legal counsel will know how to handle it and get the best possible outcome for you.
Get You Out Of Your Vacation Ownership Agreement Without Negative Consequences
In some cases, the only way to cancel your vacation ownership agreement is by using an attorney. If a timeshare attorney asks you to relinquish your ownership rights, consider. You may lose the monies paid to your resort. However, you will get rid of all financial responsibilities per the vacation ownership agreement by settling. Additionally, this can nullify any negative consequences to your credit score.
Timeshare cancellation can be complicated, but an experienced attorney can help you with the cancellation process and can dispute any derogatory remarks on your credit report.
Why Do I Need Timeshare Exit Attorneys?
Timeshare Attorneys who Practice Consumer Protection & Timeshare Law are very limited. Out of 1.2 million licensed attorneys in the United States, less than 1% of 1% practice Consumer protection and Timeshare Law in the same practice. Criminal Defense nor Real Estate Attorneys can cancel a timeshare contract.
Conversely, a Timeshare Attorney or Consumer Protection Attorney cannot offer a criminal defense. Each licensed attorney focuses on a particular area of law.
Timeshare Exit Companies are not law firms and do not employ Timeshare Exit Attorneys.
When you speak to any of these companies, Wesley Financial Group, Seaside Consultants, Timeshare Compliance, Resolution Timeshare Cancelation, Timeshare Specialist, Sapphire Timeshare Cancelation, Resort Legal Team, and others, before producing a payment or signing a service agreement, ask them to allow you to speak to the Timeshare Attorney directly.
If they refuse to do so before accepting payment, that's a red flag.
Also, the service agreement must be between the Timeshare Attorney and you, the client. The legal service agreement will establish an attorney-client relationship.
Lastly, who are you making a payment to? The timeshare lawyer or the Timeshare Exit Company?
If you are not signing a contract or making a payment to the timeshare lawyer that will provide Timeshare Cancellation Services, you are not establishing an attorney-client relationship.
You are taking the risk of not having legal representation, and Timeshare Cancellation Services will not take place.
