I had heard nothing from Bluegreen and today they acknowledged in this email there is an open case....

@TUGBrian Good News, they are doing deed backs but not sure if they are being selective or not.

I just opened my mail. I have a letter dated 2 weeks ago that says I have 30 days from date of letter to get it notarized with two witnesses and get it back to them or it will be void and I have to start again. It was a deed back to my association for only one of my three weeks, no mention of the other two. It was for my two bedroom, week 31, my prime summer week. I do know that my other two weeks are part of a different sub association so that can be why.

I wonder if I could even find a notory that would touch the documents, maybe at UPS, not even sure banks are doing now, but getting two customers to sign doubt I could. So being I got the email, I will take that as an understanding that everything is on hold and just wait.

I got the same letter. Back dated from March 13. We went to the bank and got it notarized and witnessed yesterday. I overnighted it to their office and it was signed for today with a printable signature etc through fed ex. Now I just wait....

Has anyone heard of this before? I do not own Bluegreen but a user recently PM'd me correspondence between Bluegreen and the owner. Through a pilot program, Bluegreen has offered for the owner to donate the timeshare to a charity (choices were either Junior Achievement of South Florida or Christel House). The donation value is less than $200. Only obligation is paying off any loans or maintenance fees that are due. In addition, the owner would get use of 4,000 points to use over the next two years at no cost to the owner. Because it wasn't my correspondence I can't share it here or really give any more details. I am hoping the member will see this and post more information.

On the surface, and if true, this is great for owners. However, something tells me this won't last long. What charity in their right mind would want to be loaded up with unwanted timeshares along with their maintenance fees?
I was just at an owners update 1 month ago at Bluegreen tradewinds resort and specifically ask about a deedback program and was informed non exists. However in light of recent event maybe they have initiated one. Here's hoping, :cool:

What we don’t know is if they are choosing which resorts and weeks to take deed backs for that are profitable for them. I own at Blue Ridge Village and they acquired it more recently from another timeshare company. The week that I got the paperwork for that I would deed back would get them lots of money as they are selling there. prime summer week, two bedroom. My other weeks are one bedrooms, maybe not as prime to them.
