Getting a timeshare title transfer is a simple process. A legal professional can help you with the paperwork. If you own a timeshare in a foreign country, you may need a translator or a local lawyer to translate your documents. The resort or developer may be able to help you complete the transfer.
The process of getting a timeshare title transfer is similar to buying or selling a home. Depending on where you live, the process can take anywhere from four to eight weeks. If you email your closing documents, you may be able to reduce the time it takes to complete your transaction.
The ARDA-ROC has created a helpful Timeshare Transfer of Title Checklist that you can download to guide you through the process. You can also ask your Fidelity Resales agent for a referral to a licensed title company.
The most important part of this process is ensuring you have the correct documents in order to move forward. The right documents will not only make the transfer go smoothly, but will also give you peace of mind. Having a lawyer prepare your deed will also ensure that it complies with local and state requirements.
The process of getting a timeshare transfer can also be complicated if you own a timeshare in a country with different real estate laws. For example, you may need to prepare a letter of transfer and submit it to the resort administration, which can be a cumbersome task.
