We are looking on behalf of our mother-in-law to get rid of 2 weeks of timeshares in Orlando area. Has anyone worked with Timeshare Complaints(Kevin Kells)? They want $3500 paid to an escrow account for Timeshare Closing Services. When I said we didn't want to pay that much upfront, he said we could probably start with half the amount, and after the closing pay the rest. Is this just a scam like all the others? Are there any legitimate timeshare resale companies? You can't even donate the timeshares! Besides listing them for basically free on Craigslist, what can you do to get rid of them?

Rita,

There are companies that will take title to your timeshare using all of the procedures required by the timeshare company. These companies require that you pay them to take the timeshare off your hands. It sounds counterintuitive but it does get you out from under the continuing obligations and the truth is, there are almost no buyers for timeshares.

This company's offer looks questionable, especially their 100% guarantee. Our advise would be to check with the Florida Attorney General:

You may contact the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Florida Land Sales, Condominiums, and Mobile Homes, Bureau of Timeshares at (850) 488-1122 for additional information.

Here is a link to the company's BBB Report:

dts,
You stated in your response to Rita that "There are companies that will take title to your timeshare using all of the procedures required by the timeshare company. These companies require that you pay them to take the timeshare off your hands."
My question to you is, do you know the name(s) of such companies? If so, can you please provide them? Thanks!

Megan,

What I would recommend would be to check the BBB Accredited Business Directory here:

http://www.la.bbb.org/BBB-Accredited/Find

Search for "timeshare" and you'll get a couple pages of results. Make sure to check each company's rating and reviews and don't hesitate to come back to Ask the Community if you have questions on a specific one. Also please take a moment to review this on our Facebook page about Selling your Timeshare:

Information is power. Let us know if you have any questions.

Don´t pay any upfront fees to have your timeshare sold. There are thousands of testimonials of people who felt pray of these timeshare scams. The company that started all of this was Sierra Resale's and Rentals. They claimed to have a buyer and required to pay upfront for closing services. If you paid for it, that would be the last time you would hear from them. It happened to me. Read this article; it provides a detailed explanation on how we were scammed. I think it would help you: http://www.timesharescam.com/timeshare-cancel/55-sierra-resort-services-taking-timeshare-scam-to-a-new-level/
