    Deeded owner's rights

    Is there anyone who can explain how Wyndham can restrict resale purchasers access to certain facilities (IE Worldmark) when deeded owners are legally property owners (Wyndham Access owners in particular) just the same as owners who bought developer points?

    Worldmark or Wyndham? I live in Arizona

    First, I have been advised to look into Worldmark, instead of Wyndham because I live in Arizona. I already own Wyndham Governors Green in VA for a 126000 Biannual/even years.
