My resort says they don’t have any available weeks for me this year. Are they obligated to give me a week if I have a red winter floating week? If so, can I legally just not pay maintenance fees for this year if they aren’t going to give me a week?
Can I refuse to pay maintenance if my resort can’t offer me availability?
Thank you for your question.
Covid-19 resulted in long-term closures for resorts creating a huge backlog of owners unable to book their timeshare. Unfortunately, the resorts are being very unaccommodating and are still demanding maintenance fee payments even if there is no availability. As far as I’m aware, no timeshare contract protects owners against this type of event.
You have a few options, first of all, you could contact your timeshare company and ask what alternatives could be offered and if nothing is deemed to be acceptable, then maybe time to consider releasing yourself from your timeshare? (this will of course depend on what you have purchased).
