Timeshare Consumers

With such a huge industry, the consumer can feel like no one is on your side. Ideally, all timeshare owners are happy, but you are reading this website, so we know that is not the case. There are many reasons timeshare are great, but chances are if you bought a timeshare from a resort, then you have reasons to be unhappy.

First and foremost, you were most likely lied to, misled, deceived or some type of misinformation was given to you. It would be hard for a timeshare sales presentation to NOT commit some type of fraud while you were at the timeshare presentation. Again, while timeshares can be great, it’s never recommended to buy one from a resort. For some people, it could be okay to buy a resale, but everyone would agree that renting them is the best way to use them.

The problem with finding out if any fraud occurred to you while purchasing a timeshare, is a double edge sword. On one hand, you have very big corporations, endless attorneys to deal with and a timeshare agreement that you signed.
However, if you know what to say, how to say it and also know that fraud was committed against you, the law is on your side.

There is no contract if fraud occurred or misinformation was given. You can get out of your timeshare contract.
