    Continue to be happy not knowing anything about golf. It is a most frustrating sport... and it will also save you alot of $... ;)

    Important thing is to request and verify the estoppel. Estoppel will essentially show the loan balance, MF balance, unit details / lock off etc.

    Title insurance is not worth the money unless the purchase price is substantial (for me $10K; YMMV).

    Why pay $250-400 to guarantee that you really own something worth $1,000 +/- ? Especially when the likelihood of a title issue covered by the insurance is minimal.

    The far more common problem is that the unit is not as described (season, view, etc.) or that there are unpaid fees or special assessments. Therefore, I agree with rahulgopi that an estoppel is essential for every purchase.

    I have a question.
    When a timeshare gets sold is there a way to take it off the timeshare marketplace so that one can then know which is truly available?
    Thank you

    All ads expire in 45 days. TUG has no way of knowing when they sell - it's the owner's responsibility to take them down.
