    Diamond Now Require Seller and Buyer Affidavits

    this past summer, apparently Diamond now requires buyer and sellers to sign and notarize transfer affidavits. Check out the screenshot! Wonder if this is just stonewalling, or Diamond forcing sellers to use their Transitions program.

    Anyone heard of Ardent law group?

    We signed up with Timeshare Exit Team in March 2018 and never heard from them again. This summer, they sent me an email saying they were referring my file to Ardent Law Group.
