We were suckered in to buying with Silverleaf a few years ago and regretted it almost from day one. The bonus time program is a laugh. The two resorts we visited were in serious need of repair and updating. Plus, they harass you constantly with calls saying they need you to come in to update your information and learn about the new things they are doing. They truth is they want to try to sucker you into upgrading!

We thought we were stuck with the dumb thing forever! We weren't. We deposited our weeks with RCI and traded for a trip to The Grand Mayan in Mexico. Once there, we decided to go to their vacation ownership presentation just to get some free tickets to Xel-Ha. While listening to the info and sharing about our experience with Silverleaf, we learned that they have a trade in program. In the end, we traded in our Silverleaf timeshare for more than we had paid for it! We are now members of Vida Vacations. We'll see how this one turns out, but it can't be worse than dealing with Silverleaf!

So, don't assume you're stuck with your nightmare. There are probably other vacation clubs and timeshares that will allow you to do what we did.

Timeshare Advocacy International is the leader in timeshare contract resolutions!

If you have been a victim of deceptive sales practices during your purchase or upgrade of your timeshare we have the solution. We are the only advocacy group in the U.S. that focuses on deceptive sales practices within the timeshare industry that is accredited with the BBB .

Additionally, we are the only company to win in court against the biggest timeshare company in the U.S. 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.

Timeshare Advocacy International is headquartered in Mount Juliet, TN and currently has a staff of 19 that do nothing but consult, coach, and mentor timeshare owners who have been deceived during their purchase or upgrade of their timeshares. “We specialize in helping timeshare owners not only get out of their timeshare contracts if they were lied to, but we also help them understand what happened and how they were scammed so this hopefully will not happen again!

I used to have a silver leaf timeshare,it is a scam and I was one of the lucky ones who managed to have it taken back to them, I went to Orlando and Wyndham resort there sounded great, I didn't buy because of my previous bad experience. Anyway, can someone tell me where can I Can clubs that will rent condos and not get stuck with a resort for life?


Lol.... even if they could take the weeks back they just added what you paid for silverleaf to the top of the week/program with them.

You can buy a "lease" in Mexico for way less than any deeded week in the states. Oops.


You've just been had, in a major way!! The person who sold you is still laughing.

That is such an old trick!

Timeshares are non tradeable. You should have known this.


Why would you buy a timeshare when all you wanted was vacations...Did you not know there where clubs and programs just for that....or did they just have really really really good sales people.?


Yes, I would like to also know how you were able to just trade in your Silverleaf timeshare. Could you explain or tell me how you were able trade in the timeshare?


How can you just trade in your Silverleaf timeshares if you have a contract with them?
