    Thank you

    Thanks for the advice, we will be sending it to both addresses. One final question, we're in Canada and we're gonna send this via registered mail through Canada Post. Is there anything we should do to cover our asses by verifying that the contents of the envelope contain the above letter? Is getting a photocopy of the letter before we send it enough legal-wise?

    Not really familiar with the differences between Canada Post and USPS. If you get a receipt that it's sent, then you're good to go. If not, photocopy and date-stamp a copy. We recommend sending a COPY of the original contract along with the letter for identification purposes, and of course if both you and the wife signed it (or anyone else) both of those signatures need to be on the rescission.

    I also don't know the difference between 'Registered' and 'Certified' in Canada Post. We would just send it 'Certified here' It's Cheaper.

    Glad you found us.....

    You've double posted this question and it was answered already in another thread. The welcome letter was automatically generated shortly after you signed the contract. It is now irrelevant and meaningless with a timely submitted rescission already in process since then. Just "welcome" that "welcome" letter right into your recycling bin.

    Your timely submitted rescission will be processed, although it could (lawfully) take up to 45 days before you actually have the refund of your deposit firmly in hand.

    Didnt want to start a new thread..

    I followed to whole process to cancel a timeshare. All within the 10 days.

    Agent of course called the first day he got the news and someone answered the call. he mentioned we were doing it wrong and we just told him to call back and now he calls pretty much everyday.

    Do I wanna hear what is the problem or just keep ignoring calls?

    The sales person has ZERO input on your recession - he just wants to talk you out of it and save his commission.

    An entirely different department handles recessions.

    DON'T CALL!

    If you have proof that they received your recession letter then you don't need to do anything> Count yourself lucky if they don't call you! The only reason they will call is to try to talk you out of cancelling or to sell you something else. If they call just tell them you aren't interested and hang up.

    Will I be receiving a notification in the mail about cancellation or a paper saying that we are no longer WestGate customers?

    No news is good news. They are under no obligation to inform you of anything. Just watch the account you paid the down payment from for a credit. It can take up to 45 days. Probably won't. Yes, it's stressful, but beats dealing with the likes of Wastegate any more. Congrats on rescinding.

    What happens if for whatever reason they do withdraw a payment what should be my next step since I have proof they received my resignation?

    No need to worry at all. They must comply with state law; as a result your money will be refunded within that 45 day time frame. Relax; no need to sweat it out.
