Timeshares can be an attractive option for folks who love taking vacations.
Timeshare owners can lock in future trips at today's prices. They also might give travelers access to a variety of onsite amenities. These are some of the reasons that the timeshare industry grew by 7% last year.
But in some cases, people end up with a timeshare they no longer want. Perhaps they purchased it on impulse and didn't consider the cost of the maintenance fees. Or they might have inherited a timeshare that they don't want to keep.
While timeshare cancellation can be complicated, it doesn't have to bankrupt you.
If you have a Florida timeshare you're looking to exit, keep reading to find out what steps you'll need to take.
Right to Timeshare Cancellation Laws in Florida
Many consumers purchase timeshares during a high-pressure sales pitch. The company offers a deal that they claim is only available for one day. Then, if you reject the pitch, they offer additional incentives to make the package seem more desirable.
In many cases, the buyer doesn't realize what all of the fine print entails until after they sign the contract. Once they've had time to reflect, they start experiencing buyer's remorse and wonder if it's too late to get out of the deal.
Laws regarding timeshare cancellation vary from state to state. Some states only allow for cancellation under certain circumstances. Other states only give consumers 3 business days after signing to cancel their timeshare.
Luckily, Florida has some of the most consumer-friendly timeshare cancellation laws in the country.
In Florida, consumers have 10 calendar days to cancel their timeshare. The timeline is calculated from either the day the contract is signed or the day the buyer received all required documents, whichever occurred later.
Canceling Your Timeshare
Cancellations that fall within the 10-day cancellation period are the easiest to process. If you decide to cancel your timeshare, you will need to notify the seller.
Requests for timeshare cancellation must be submitted to the seller in writing. Make sure your letter includes your legal name as it appears on the contract, as well as your phone number, address, and email. You should also include the name of the timeshare company, the date you purchased the timeshare, and a statement that you are canceling the contract.
Check your contract for instructions on sending the timeshare cancellation letter. For example, some contracts require that the letter is sent by certified mail. If you don't follow the instructions listed in the contract, the seller may be able to argue that your cancellation is invalid.
The seller is then required to refund all payments either 20 days after they receive or written notice or 5 days after the funds from your check have cleared. Whichever event occurs later will be used as the standard.
In some cases, buyers receive incentives as part of the timeshare package they purchase. If you cancel your timeshare, the value of these incentives will be subtracted from your refund.
Canceling Afer the Cancellation Period
Once the cancellation period has passed, canceling the timeshare becomes more complicated. When you purchase a timeshare, you are signing a contract that you are legally required to uphold. That said, it is still possible to get out of the contract.
Obligations of the Timeshare Seller
Under Florida law, timeshare sellers must meet certain disclosure obligations. If these obligations are not fulfilled, it may be easier to get out of your contract.
Together, these disclosures are called the "Public Offering Statement." This statement is a detailed history of the timeshare property or program that you're buying into.
At a minimum, the public offering statement should include a description of the timeshare and the duration of the timeshare. It should also indicate whether the purchaser will have any interest in an actual property, and should detail what accommodations the timeshare holder is entitled to.
Finally, the disclosure must outline how the seller apportions shared expenses among timeshare holders. Failing to include any of this information could make the contract invalid.
When to Consult an Attorney
In most cases, canceling a timeshare after the cancellation period will require legal action, and maybe even a lawsuit. Consulting with an attorney is your best bet in this situation. Make sure to choose a lawyer who has experience working with contracts in general and timeshares specifically.
An experienced attorney will be able to navigate consumer protection laws on your behalf. Also, an attorney might be able to identify a loophole in your contract that renders the agreement void. This is the most effective way to be relieved of your contractual obligations.
In rare cases, you may even be able to recover some of the money you have already invested. Keep in mind, however, that it is very difficult to recover funds from a timeshare company after the cancellation period has passed.
What if You're in Foreclosure?
Since timeshares typically cost upwards of $20,000, most people do not pay for them in cash. Instead, they take out a mortgage that they make monthly payments on. These payments are in addition to a yearly maintenance fee.
But just like with a mortgage on a home, there are consequences if you don't make your monthly payments on your timeshare. If you fall behind on payments, your timeshare will go into foreclosure.
There are two types of foreclosure: judicial and nonjudicial. Judicial foreclosures are settled through a court, whereas nonjudicial foreclosures are settled out of court.
Luckily, in the state of Florida, timeshare foreclosures are handled through a nonjudicial process. So, if you go into foreclosure on your timeshare, you can settle the issue with the seller out of court. Typically, when you enter foreclosure, the seller will send you a notice that they intend to resell your timeshare, and then they will place it up for auction.
While this might seem like an easy way to get out of your timeshare, it's not necessarily that simple. Foreclosing on a timeshare will tank your credit score. For this reason, it's much better to consult with an attorney before it gets to this point.

Have you ever been approached by someone with timeshares for sale? Or, have you read an ad looking for someone to buy one?
Oftentimes, timeshare salespeople play hard ball -- they woo you in initial meetings, give you "free" incentives such as gift cards or food, and then offer you a deal.
You might be attracted to the thought of having a resort-style membership available to you any time of the year. You and your family might be looking forward to long weeks at the beach in a timeshare or a place to escape to for long weekends.
Or, you may even feel pressured by the woo-tactics used by the salespeople, making you lean toward a decision you haven't fully thought through.
Should you buy into a timeshare that's for sale? The answer might surprise you.
Timeshares for Sale -- Why You Should Say No
Some people don't know how to say no to these ads or pitches. Many people aren't even aware that timeshares for sale usually aren't good deals.
There are multiple reasons why timeshares aren't a good investment; not only will you not actually own this property, but you'll also be susceptible to scams and hidden fees.
Here are five reasons why you should say no to timeshares for sale:
1. You Lose Money on Them
Wouldn't you love to have your money work smarter, not harder? That's the idea that many people are thinking when they make investments -- spend the money now and make more in return.
Many people think that timeshares are an investment. However, they aren't. Investments are buy-ins where you can expect a return in the future; timeshares don't promise this at all. In fact, they do the opposite!
Timeshares lose money. Once someone buys one, the value of it instantly plummets -- meaning it'll be nearly impossible to recover the initial costs, let alone profit off of it.
Buying into a timeshare means you are buying a property that you'll be dumping money into for no reason. In the short run, it may seem like a good idea to buy into timeshares for sale -- but in the long run, you'll see how you did nothing but waste your money on a property you didn't even fully own.
2. Hidden Fees in the Small Print
The property of your dreams can possible, especially with financial assistance for a down payment or to help make monthly payments.
When people can't pay for their timeshare up front, they oftentimes take out a mortgage to cover the costs. However, this isn't the only payments they'll be making.
Timeshares are notorious for having fees in the small print that are often not talked about during sales pitches. These fees can vary from property taxes, maintenance fees, insurance payments and even utilities. The average annual maintenance fee for a timeshare is $660 -- and that's to maintain a property that you probably only spend one to two weeks per year on the inside.
When adding up all of these fees, you will certainly end up paying more than you initially thought you were.
3. Hard to Schedule Time
If you and your family regularly vacation throughout the year, having consistent housing could be a dream. What's better than knowing exactly where you'll be staying each summer?
Contrary to what a salesperson may tell you, it's actually surprisingly difficult to schedule time for you and your family at a timeshare.
There are often many blackout dates included in your timeshare agreement. Aside from that, you may get locked into having your time at the location for the same one or two weeks every year.
This lack of flexibility can be quite frustrating -- if you can't go at the times available, then you paid for an entire year when you didn't even use the property. Talk about a loss!
4. Difficult to Rent Them Out
If you can't schedule your timeshare one year, considering renting it out could seem like the perfect solution.
However, it's oftentimes difficult to find someone willing to rent these properties out.
People are often wary of renting out timeshares -- they know they aren't good investments and worry about the extra fees that may be tacked on to their rent. If you were counting on someone temporarily taking it over for a year, you might want to reconsider.
Additionally, some timeshare agreements prohibit renting the spaces out to people who aren't on the agreement for it. You may think of risking it by renting it out to friends you know "under the table," but if you were caught, you could face hefty fines as a result.
5. Resell Difficulty and Scams
If you've fallen behind on your timeshare payments you may already be thinking of selling it for relief.
However, once you purchase a timeshare, it's incredibly difficult to get rid of it. Timeshares lose value after purchase, making buyers wary and reluctant in taking them off your hands.
Because of this, scammers have developed ways to take advantage of sellers looking to get out of the market. These scammers will promise to sell your timeshare in no time -- but will require you to pay hefty fees up front. They end up taking your money without selling it -- and you are left thousands of dollars in the hole and still stuck with your timeshare.
Considering the difficulty of reselling these properties, it's wise to not purchase one in the first place. Should anything happen and you fall behind on your mortgage payments, you can fall into foreclosure. This will affect your credit score and ability to get loans in the future -- which will make future housing purchases incredibly difficult.
Conclusion
Overall, timeshares for sale are becoming a thing of the past. Unless you and your family want to vacation on the same week every year, it may be better to walk away from the lengthy sales pitch or to ignore the ad.
Instead, consider planning vacations in advance -- it offers more flexibility, spontaneity and could save you money in the long run.
