Q. During the bankruptcy we could get zero response then

Q. During the bankruptcy we could get zero response then recently (like 2 weeks ago) we get a letter from Grant Wolfe stating:‘we are extending you a one time offer to pay $870.00 to transfer ‘ownership' back to the association and this will appear as a regular deed in public record. OR they return the file to Tahiti Village to proceed foreclosing on your real estate.Is this some scam to get $870.00…It seems shady after all these years of no communication etc. I want to throw this away but don't want my credit messed with.We gave up on them and paid everything off over 5 years ago...this doesn't seem legal.

I have a deeded timeshare in Branson, Mo. The original company has been bought out by Westgate. Selling it has been a joke. What legal options do I have to get rid of it? And since I live in TN and Property is in MO which state do I search for a lawyer specializing in this issue?

I own a deeded timeshare here in Reno NV. I recently

I own a deeded timeshare here in Reno NV. I recently received a letter from them stating that due to foreclosures and owners just giving back their timeshares the property(Plaza Resort Club) would be bankrupt and out of business at years end. They want me to either sign the deed over or I do have the option to transfer to another property for a fee ($375) plus the maintenance fee will be quite a bit higher( not interested in that). I don't mind signing the deed over but something sounds fishy to me. The Resort is large and full of millions of $ in antiques and they are going to sell it. They claim that they were loaned 1 million for operating expenses and would cost $600,000.00 to convert the deeds back to them. These two issues mean that (they claim) there will be nothing left after the sale of the property to distribute to owners in good standing. It is hard for me to believe they would not reap millions from the sale of this property given location and the condition of the property. Should I continue to keep an eye on this issue or just get rid of the timeshare. I have wanted to dispose of this timeshare anyway. I just don't want them to sell this property turn it into a hotel and make a bunch of money.

We inherited a deeded timeshare. buyyourtimeshare.com told

we inherited a deeded timeshare. buyyourtimeshare.com told us they would act as a principal and transfer deed out of ourname into theirs, thus relieving us from the timeshare. because the deed is "fee simple" they say we can sell this timeshareto anyone we please. they then negotiate with the timeshare people for money or just let them foreclose the deed registeredin their corporation that was used to buy our deed. does this make legal sense? they adv. a thousand dollars to complete thisprocess. scam?

We recently were informed that our aunt had a timeshare in

we recently were informed that our aunt had a timeshare in maryland. we asked to see the contract, specifically how it ends,at her death, etc... The timeshare people told us to enquire at the court house for the deed; we did, the court house sent uswhen the deed was purchased, and who recorded it, etc... but no contract was recorded. We went back to timeshare people and asked again for a copy of the contract our aunt signed and were eventually told that the company that had her contract is no longer in business, and they did not have any records from that prior company. They did have enough information to send us a maintenance fee, but nothing else. Are we obligated to keep paying this timeshare company? Do they have a claim against the estate?

I am wondering if there is a way to give/get out of my

Dear Sir or Madam,I am wondering if there is a way to give/get out of my Wyndham Timeshare. I recently upgraded and now realize that was a mistake for me at this time financially. I understand that there is a 10 day window to get out of a real estate contract in FL. I believe I have an exception, or at least I am hoping. My previous timeshare lease had a co-signer. I signed new paperwork on the 8th of July 2016. The co-signer then was mailed paperwork and had to send it back to Wyndham. They then sent me my contracts. They were sent on the 21st of July via 2nd day mail. So I did not receive them until the 23rd of July, therefore my window to get out was already closed. Does this at all help me to get out of this contract because I did not have my contracts in the 10 day window? Thank you for your time in Advance. --Danita Kilcherman

I am the owner of a Time Share in Fla. At the time of

I am the owner of a Time Share in Fla. At the time of purchase, an ex-friend wanted to be co-owner so I added the name. Since that time, we have gone our separate ways and I wish to have her name removed. I thought it would be a simple matter since she wants no parts of it, is not responsible for the payments....nor has she ever paid anything. I am the only one making payments. I would like to keep the property but only if her name is removed. I contacted the time share to proceed with proper process and was told that her name has to remain on the contract until it's been paid off in full. I find this to be very odd as she's not paying anything but still has rights to use the property whenever she wants without my knowledge??? I'm confused, since she has agreed to take her name off and no longer wants to be connected. She has also agreed to signing a Quick Claim. I'm not sure what I should do at this point. What are my options? Please advise.

I know when my ex husband used his inheritance money for a down payment on real estate that we both owned, He received his fulll reimbursement, and then we split the property 50/50, per California Law. Is this law still valid? My new husband and I are divorcing and the down payment came from inheritance. All the money put into the house came from monies I had prior to our marriage, will I receive my money first, before the 50/50 split?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Nothing I can think of bought some timeshare points with inheritance money, and some THomas Kinkaide art pieces these two were about $25000 and the down payment on the house was $244,000
