    Stuck in my membership—HELP!!

    Hi everyone, My husband and I became Diamond Resorts members a couple years ago and since then we've slowly become aware of how useless our membership is. We only have 2,500 points/year (because that's all we could afford), but that's essentially a useless amount of points and makes no...

    Advice on Getting Out

    in July of 2019 we purchased a timeshare at the Enclave in Myrtle Beach. Since that time we’ve had a HUGE regret because it was a bad financial decision for us.

    Diamond Resorts Pleased to Announce Settlement with "Timeshare Exit Attourney"

    Saw this on a Facebook page for Diamond Owners. Kinda seems like an oxymoron but I guess you can't look a gift horse in the mouth. The interesting thing to me is that Diamond is pursuing several other exit companies as well. This win should give the a solid foundation in that effort...

    Exit Attorneys are they legit

    We want out of our Sheraton Vistana Cascades odd/even year timeshare. It was purchased in mid 90's. Heard an ad on exit attorney Solomon Cross in Winter Park FL that they would be able to get us out of the contract as they deal directly with Sheraton. First thing is of course they want an...

    Lake Okanagon Resort, Kelowna BC, Canada, need advice

    Hi, We've been with LOK for about 10 yrs. Since then they've changed owners several times. We heard they were under receivership and advised them that we were no longer paying maintenance fees as a result of this. Last month a new company that bought them over called and said we owed 3...

    Anyone had experience with © 2014-2017 Redemption & Release CA

    We have a couple timeshares we don't want anymore but don't want to pay more to give them back so the resort/management can sell them again. This Redemption & Release is an ad I saw. Any thoughts?
