Get Out Of Timeshare Legally
Cancelling Your Timeshare
There are a number of reasons timeshare owners are interested in cancelling their timeshares, and there are a few different ways to get out of timeshare ownership. How you exit your contract might depend on where you purchased it from, how long you have owned it, and which state or country the timeshare is in. For free advice pertaining to your specific situation, we are here to talk!
Use Your Rescission Laws
Consumers who purchased a timeshare within the last few days should be able to cancel their contract using their state’s rescission laws. State rescission laws allow you to cancel your timeshare contract generally within 3 – 14 days of purchase, varying by state. Your purchase documents should include rescission information.
Using state rescission laws allows you to exit your timeshare contract for a full refund regardless of your reason for cancelling and without contest from your timeshare company. This option is always better than trying to sell the timeshare yourself since it guarantees you will get all of your money back. Making a profit on the sale of a timeshare is rare, so we always advise timeshare owners to take advantage of their state’s rescission laws when possible.
Contact Your Resort
If you purchased your timeshare more than a few days ago, we always recommend directly contacting your resort first if you are interested in cancelling your timeshare; they may have a program in place for owners. For example, Hilton has a “buy-back” option for some owners, and Marriot has both an exit and a resale program.
Selling Your Timeshare
You could attempt to sell the timeshare yourself. Many owners will list their timeshare on Craigslist or Ebay as a starting point. You can also try to use a timeshare broker to help you with the sale.
Using a timeshare exit company
Many timeshare owners will partner with a timeshare exit company to help them get out of their contract. We can help you find the right company for your needs by using the contact information on this page.
Up-front Fees vs. Escrow
Whether looking to partner with a timeshare exit company or a broker, consider using a company that offers an escrow payment option, rather than up-front-fees, for extra peace of mind. Learn more about escrow and how it can help you avoid scams here (link). The escrow option protects your money in the event that a company goes out of business or otherwise rescinds their money-back guarantee.
