JMB's weekly newsletter says that some Divi owners have received a special assessment notice. I have not received one. Has anyone on this forum?

We own at Divi Village, in Aruba, which is Divi Links? We have not received an assessment.

Oh, ok. Curacao. How odd. The newsletter specifically said assessment in SXM?

Could that be the billing address for the assessment payment?

On the Divi Timeshare Owners and Friends Facebook page a number of owners from Divi Village were discussing the increase in fees for two years to over $1700 for repairs and updates. One member posted a letter listing these updates. This was a discussion earlier in the week I believe.

Wouldn't that bother you sending a payment to another country as to where your TS is located and you live?

OK, Aruba. Still not sure why it's in Jeff Berger's newsletter, although maybe he does a general TS newsletter?

No, it was his weekly SXM newsletter.

I tried to join the Divi "closed group" on Facebook several days ago, but so far no one has approved my membership.

What difference does it make....I can't believe every Royal Resorts property(or ANY multiple property company for instance) has payments sent directly to them?

I "own" at SBR and send my payment to Florida or I can make a CC payment to whatever country their bank is located

Maybe we should ask JMB to post here what he was alluding to about Divi SXM assessments?

It makes a big difference when things go wrong. First it tells me that it is highly likely the TS contract is made with a shell corp who then leases space from the real owner of the property. Which the shell corp. can default or disappear so there is little recourse for the people that hold the contracts. Second if the contract owners want to fight for their rights they will have to hire a lawyer send them to the country where the money went and then send them to the country where the property is located. Talk about some travel and time billing.

Remember when SBR had the payments sent to Belize? You don't think SBR didn't have people in accounts receivable at the resort to handle this? And remember when SBR closed the resort for 2 weeks at the last minute? You don't think this was an exercise of who really controls the property in case the property's real owner had to go to court? And whose shoulders is the burden on to prove the use rights?

SXM??? Wendell
