I signed a contract today to convert my Silverleaf resort

Customer Question

i signed a contract today to convert my Silverleaf resort timeshare to Holiday Inn Club points. It was very high pressure and will cost me double to do this. I now realize I can't afford it. Is there a time period that I have to cancel the contract? Thanks

Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to helping you.

Under Illinois law, there are only certain contracts that can be cancelled within 3 days time. These include among others, door to door sales that exceed $25, campground memberships, and physical fitness contracts. Unfortunately, there is no such provision for timeshares or conversion of timeshare points.

However, that doesn't necessarily mean that the contract you signed doesn't have a cooling off period. It's definitely worth carefully reviewing and seeing if such provision exists.

If not, and the company will not willingly let you out of the contract, then you may be able to sue to be released from the contract, but only if you could prove some sort of grounds (e.g., they misrepresented the terms to induce you into signing).
