our time share is now telling us we have to pay a $200.00 deposit for damages. Thay will return within 2 weeks after we leave property. This seems unlegal to me as this property is our home we purchased and have a deed for.
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Texas
nothing at this point , we have a association meeting June 5th . and I am looking for options
Thank you for your question and for using JA. Please click accept so I will receive credit from JA for my time.Even though you have a "deed", there are others that also use the property and have deeds. The association has a duty to repair any damages and to charge the party responsible in order to protect all of the other owners. This is perfectly legal and is standard operating procedure. The other owners should not be responsible for any damage you do to the unit.
