    Timeframe for removing deceased member

    My mother and father bought a unit at Orange Lake Kissimmee in the 1990's. My father passed away about 20 years ago and my siblings and I recently found that my mother: 1) still had the time share-she hadn't mentioned it since the early 2010's, 2) was being scammed by someone who promised to...

    I've just begun the process of learning EVERYTHING about timeshares, specifically HIVC. I've never owned one, so I'm starting from zero, trying to learn all that I can.

    Successful Removal of foreclosure from credit before the 7 year?

    Hi All, I made a huge mistake in 2015 in purchasing a timeshare from Silver Leaf resorts. I was single, no kids, and had a large amount of disposable income. My situation changed about a year later as I went back to school full time to get my bachelors degree. I defaulted on my payments and...

    HICV Orange Lake property - I survived without buying

    First post for me, but after 4.5 hours of torture, I can say I survived a presentation without buying. The salesman was a nice guy, but when I mentioned resale market things took an ugly turn. He got very defensive and argumentative.. at that point he just started talking mainly to my wife...

    Why no "deed-backs?"

    Can someone please explain to me why a resort like Orange Lake would not jump at the opportunity to get my (paid-off) deed back free of charge, so they could turn around and resell it? I do not understand why they are so against this. Thank you, Matt
