timeshare
      #1729287 - 04/07/17 09:48 AM (174.204.21.102)

My wife and I have enjoyed vacations in St Martin every year since 1989. We are interested in ridding ourselves of Flamingo Resort. Any suggestions in having Diamond just take it back?

have you tried using http://sxm-timesharenews.com/

to get rid of it? It is for Flaming/Royal Palm/SBR properties.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to get rid of it?

it's rare timeshares take their property back, once my company offered a deed in lieu, but did not last long.

Depends on the particular timeshare. There are many people here who have just surrendered theirs and walked away. Not sure about Diamond's policy, in particular.

If I'm not mistaken I believe you have to have your MF up to date and then pay 250.00 to sign it over to Diamond. It was like that a couple of years ago but may have changed.

We had a unit we no longer wanted and I just signed a letter surrendering it back to the Towers. But you had to do it before the AMFs for the next year came out and if you missed that date you were held responsible for the fees for the up-coming year. We used our November week in Nov. 2015 and while we were there we signed off on the unit effective at the end of our week and commencing in January of 2016 without any problems.

Respectfully,

Carol, how do you surrender your timeshare. When i tried to get out of my timeshare in Beaver Creek, CO, they basically told me they would report me to collections if I did not pay my maintenance fees. We still use it, traded for Simpson Bay a few years ago, but the fees are exceeding the price of a vacation, not quite, but you get the gist. If anyone has any ideas, I would walk away.

Thanks for responding. We own at Flamingo week 19, 7440. It is no longer affordable and (I may add) we let ourselves get talked in to points. We just want out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DRI is accepting deedbacks. It takes some paperwork and $250 fee. Call 877-497-7521. My deedback of Colorado resort took about five months.

There is no place like SXM.
