Each timeshare is different and has its own individual transfer process. There are many steps involved in properly completing the transfer and the cooperation of the owner is crucial to our success.
Once we have received the required documentation and transfer fee the average transfer takes 120 business days. There are resorts that complete the process much faster and other resorts that take longer, depending on their internal process. We will always do our best to complete the transfer as quickly as possible while fulfilling all of the legal requirements needed to remove your name from the property.

We will do it for you! Once all of the transfer documents have been executed, including recording the new deed in the case of deeded memberships, we will forward all transfer requirements to your resort.
