Hello, I am quite new to the TS world, but I purchased 4 timeshares recently. I came to this site everyday and studied for 3 months, and then bought worldmark, 2 timeshares in Massanutten, VA and HGVC. HGVC is the last one I am buying and the seller doesn't know how to transfer the ownership, so I suggested him to use title company and I am paying the closing cost. I thought it would be better for both seller and buyer. And then I did internet research about timeshare title companies, also contacted the companies I used before for the previous TS purchase (I bought them through e-bay). After all this, it seems like Chicago Title is cheaper than others.
Does anyone have experience with this company? If feedback is good, I will keep using this company for future transfer. Chicago title has separate timeshare title division and the office is located in CA, not in Chicago.
Thank you in advance for any information!

Chicago Title is a major, reputable title insurance company. I have seen them in numerous transactions professionally over the decades. That said, I have no direct experience with them in the timeshare world.

Chicago Title is a reputable company and did a timely and no-problem closing for me just over a year ago. I highly recommend (at least the one in SoCal).

Do they have many offices in CA? I didn't know that. I contacted a main company (Chicago Title) and they sent me to CA office (Timeshare division).

Thank you for these past posts. I am purchasing my first TS. Chicago Title is handling the paperwork. It is nice that newbies are able to read the past posts to answer many questions that we have about TS owning. I must say it is FUN to investigate the timeshares.

Again Thank you TUG and all its members for the help
