The transfer of a timeshare following a divorce filing, death in the family, or the decision to sell, donate or give away the property is a complex process. In certain instances this can involve dealing with a timeshare resort’s right-of-first refusal. Any type of transfer goes beyond just the property itself. Responsibility for future liabilities must be taken into account. Whatever form the transaction takes, it requires legal help from experienced attorneys possessing a thorough knowledge of timeshare and real property laws.
