Ok. It's that time of the year where we are getting our maintenance fee notices. Just to throw it out there. I own 7000 points at South Beach and for 2009, the operating fees are $ 903.11, reserve fee $ 192.71, real estate taxes $ 101.06 and the $3 ARDA fee for a total of $ 1,199.88. I wonder what my other two HGVC timeshares at Flamingo and Las Vegas Hilton are going to cost for 2009.

It may be a little while for T/S's in the Sunshine State...
Florida's 2009 R/E tax bills should be in mail this week.

This is my first year with a timeshare...I have not yet used the points or paid a bill.

2 questions...the $250 resort transfer fee does not cover dues for my first year?

the second question, what is the "reserve fee?" Do I have to pay this and then also pay the $69 to reserve when I make a reservation?

Thanks for your help!

Double billing on Club Dues

Why did Socko get billed twice on Club dues? Do you think this was a resale and some 2008 points carried over- resulting in the 08 club dues charge?

Yes. I did receive the previous owners leftover points.

That means that the previous owner AND myself pays for dues in 2008?

...yes, it was resale

THANKS!

The reserve fee has nothing to do with making reservations. It is the portion of the yearly dues that any timeshare collects to build up their "reserve fund". That fund is earmarked for future renovations, major repairs (new roof, for example), and other one-time expenses, etc.

I also have several of the SW Florida affiliates, but I don't know if you are interested in them, or just the HGVC's.

Correct.. I just reconfirmed with the developer.. If you get any rollover points from a previous year in a resale transaction, Hilton will require you to pay a Club Fee for that prior year. The seller has also paid this fee...

Double Dipping? Maybe- but that seems to be the official policy... Regardless- chances are your additional points were worth the $90....

Not always

I have bought a resale HGVC Flamingo, and got compliment 2008 year points from seller, but HGVC didn't ask me to pay the club fee. Seller already paid 2008 dues and I just paid transfer fee of $250.
OR... maybe they will send a bill with 2009 MF? :)

When are the maintenance fees actually due?
yumdrey: "My statement says Jan.1, 2009
If you look at the back of your statement, you should find that there is a substantial "grace period" (60 days?) before late fees start to kick in.

My neighborhood HOA sends out assessments with a due date that says "if not paid within 30 days thereafter, a late fee of [x] is due." There's no reason to honor the due date, 'cuz the jokers running this HOA holds all checks until after the late-fee date, anyway.

Weird. The MF's for my 2-BR OVS-II (Seaworld) unit are somewhat different...
Copied verbatim...
Operating Fee 01/01/09...$568.31

R/E Taxes 01/01/09........$ 72.06
Perhaps something was lost in translation, or foreign exchange.

I just checked my last year bill, I own at HGVC Seaworld OVS I, not OVS II, my mistake.
I edited my previous post and have corrected it.
