In another thread a newbie said that in Aruba, there is no right of rescission at all. Does anyone know if this is true?

Every US state has a law which say that all real estate transactions must have a right to rescission. Mexico as well.

Aruba??

The U.S. Virgin Islands are an organized, unincorporated United States territory. The rescission period is 10 days.

That is not quite accurate, legislation is by province and there is a 10 day recission period in Alberta - you can view highlights here.

OP, Aruba is probably covered under Dutch civil law and I would explore your options there. I have yet to see legislation specifically covering timeshares but I have seen lots of info. regarding the right to rescind a contract based upon mistakes.

Old thread but wanted to clarify

this is wrong, Ohio is an example of a state without a mandatory cooling off period.

Which law books have you been reading?

In New York and Massachusetts there is a 3 day right to cancel on primary residence (including 2nd home in MA.)
