my aunt had a timeshare in florida that she wanted my name to be added as co-owner. she sent the timeshare a letter to that effect, but died before papers were processed. this happened two years ago. her daughter wants me to have it, she is executor. has death certificate, but nothing was in the will since she had given it to me before she passed. everything has been finalized with the will already. what do l do now to get my name on the deed. she owned the timeshare outright. her daughter hasnt dont anything with the timeshare people. l have used the timeshare for 2 years pretending my aunt is still with us. but would like to have it legalized.
Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you!

Can you provide me a bit more information? Is your aunt's daughter the only beneficiary under your aunt's will? Thanks.

no. but the other 3 siblings also do not want the timeshare.

Thank you for your quick response. What you will need to do is to have her daughter, as executor, contact the timeshare company to transfer the interest to you. The timeshare company should provide her a quit claim deed for allowing for the transfer of title of the timeshare from the estate to you. Her daughter will sign it on behalf of the estate as director, and because the other siblings are beneficiaries of the will and title did not get transferred prior to death, the other siblings will need to sign the deed as well. Once signed, witnessed and notarized, the deed will need to be recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. If you would like me to provide you a template for a quit claim deed, just let me know and I'll be happy to provide one for you. This will allow the executor to get started on this immediately without having to wait for the timeshare company.
