    I'm watching an ebay listing for a platinum unit and I sent the seller a message asking if they would give me the unit number. The seller responded that she would have to ask her boss if she could give me the unit number and then proceeded to ask my why I needed it. I explained to her that I want to confirm it's a platinum week before I bid. This is two days ago and I have not heard back. The listing ends tomorrow. They are fairly new on ebay and don't have a lot of feedback, but what they have is 100%. I'm a little worried to bid because when I searched their name I found some negative posts about them.

    Has anyone had recent experience with this company? Should I stay away?

    Their ebay name is Timesharediscounts

    We dealt with them in October of 2016 and had no problems with the three deeds we got through them.

    Since an eBay auction on any real estate matter (including timeshares) is non-binding, why not just "snipe" bid exactly what you are willing to pay (temporarily assuming the "platinum" claim to be correct) if this auction is ending soon?

    If you "win" the auction but missing details are not provided (and then verified) before it's time to actually sign a contract and pony up money, it is your right and prerogative to simply not proceed further and walk away, without consequences.

    None of my business or concern, but what does unit number have to do with "platinum" status anyhow?
    Isn't it the week (i.e., not the unit) that determines any such status --- in any timeshare system? :ponder:

    That's a good point, i can verify the details before I pay. The unit number for this resort will indicate whether it is a platinum weeks. The resort is a floating week so the assigned week doesn't make a difference. I'm going to bid and if I get it I will ask for the estoppel. Without the estoppel I won't proceed.

    It took just a little over 3 months for the Wyndham deeds but they are slow. Our Grandview Las Vegas deed didn't take as long.

    We have had a disastrous experience with www.legacyadventuresinc.com We purchased a timeshare on E-Bay back in September only to find that Legacy Adventures has a poor understanding of title transfer. They failed to ensure clear title and ended up drafting a deed to us from a non-existent owner. Now they want us to sign a deed to cancel the incorrect deed they prepared and have not yet agreed to refund the purchase price. We only found out about the error when contacting Marriott to see why the transfer was not complete. When the company was confronted with the error they misrepresented facts argued with me that they did not realize the title was not clear. Making sure title is clear is an integral part of the sales process. The timeshare was represented as free and clear. It is amazing that a company taking a fee to prepare the transfer documents has no understanding of its obligation to be sure the chain of title is correct and clear when preparing deeds under the circumstances. Stay Away from this company. The current information for this company is: Legacy Adventures Inc., 25010 Oakhurst Dr Ste 100, Spring, TX 77386, tel 888.336.1040. I intend to report this company to the local District Attorney, the Better Business Bureau, E-Bay and timeshare regulatory agencies. I am posting this email to warn others about our experience. Hope this helps someone.

    My experience is that virtually none of the timeshare closing companies do a title search to be sure that the chain of title is clear. This is why I always do a title search before the transfer is done. Most just get a copy of the current owner's title and an estoppel letter from the resort management confirming ownership and that fees are current but if there was a problem in the chain of title before the current owner came along, this will not catch the problem. One example is a previous owner might have put the title into a trust and then sold it and conveyed title individually because they didn't tell the closing company or resort management that it had been put into a trust. Net result is nothing got conveyed and the trust still legally owns the property.

    I picked up a westgate smoky mountain from them earlier this year. No issues at all.. Somehow luck was on my side and the unit slipped through the crack and the ROFR was waived.. I know, everyone poo poo's westgate.. but this resort is a quick getaway for me so being a resale owner doesn't hurt me at all..

    YMMV!

    Exactly my sentiments about this company.

    I'm glad there are those with good experiences; you were probably fortunate. I'm sure there are many who have had no issues with this company. But I also believe there are many who have been on the short-end of the stick. Myself included. Their motto: If it works out; great. If not, too bad.

    Be warned.
