OK, all you finance wizzes out there-or people who have had firsthand experience-let's clear things up once and for all so people (including me) can know what timeshares really are and when the problems come into play. There's obvious evidence that maybe they're not so great after all in certain circumstances.

Are there legal teeth to owning timeshares/are they like stock?

Does purchasing them inevitably mean thousands of dollars? After seeing people talk about them first hand I'm beginning to think that maybe they could be OK but only from companies that know what they're doing and aren't out to scam

Timeshare Advocacy International Wins Lawsuit against World’s Largest Resort.

In November of 2010 TAI was sued by the largest timeshare developer in the world for assisting timeshare owners out of their contracts with their resort. The charges ranged from violating the Tennessee Uniformed Secrets Act, Tennessee Consumer Rights Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relationships, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, and unjust enrichment. On July 19, 2012 it took a jury less than 45 minutes to deliberate and return a verdict of “Not Guilty” on all charges.

“We are excited to finally have this decision behind us so we can now focus on one thing, and that is our clients. During the last 2 years they have been trying to do one thing and that is to shut us up and bankrupt us through the court system. We always felt that at the end of the day a jury would see that TAI is in the business to help people. If the timeshare industry would stop lying and sell their product honestly we would be out of business,” said Sean Austin.

“The jury’s verdict represents a victory for free speech and free enterprise, and against corporate bullying,” said Austin’s attorney, Greg Oakley of DHPM PC in a press release.

I’ll provide you with a few facts about timeshares after that your own your own if you still would purchase one. First, timeshares have not resale value.

If you would like to get ride of it 20 - 30 years down the road you can’t. Second, when they throw you the sales pitch about this is something you will own forever and can give to your kids and grandkids. You will be giving them a Bill!! That’s right a BILL!

They will pay maintenance fees every month.

Lastly, when the fees go up you will still have to pay and your kids will pay and your grandkids will pay. If the bill is $250, all the timeshare organization has to do is raise the fee to $1,000, then where are you?
