Thank you, Diane.Only what I saw on CTV News. Pat Foran (CTV Toronto, consumer reporter) also did his follow-up piece on Carriage Hills. They were not allowed in the meeting but interviewed a few owners outside. He said there were about 1000 people in attendance. The biggest complaint that owners want resolved is that their heirs are being forced to accept the timeshare and be responsible for continuing to pay the ever increasing maintenance fees. I still don't know how that is possible.
I heard about an owner's children who got out of their deceased parents' Cranberry ownership. The lawyer handling the estate put a notice in the owners' small town (nowhere near Collingwood) newspaper, something about anybody wanting to lay a claim on outstanding debt to contact him within a certain timeframe or the estate would be closed. Of course the timeshare company didn't see the notice and a year after the estate was closed a maintenance fee bill arrived addressed to the estate of... The lawyer sent a reply that the estate was long closed and proof of the posted notices. The kids never heard another word from Cranberry. I don't know why more deceased owners ownerships are not handled like that.
Thank you, Diane.
I had my dates mixed up, I thought the meeting was Tuesday evening. We were unavailable to attend.
Hopefully there will be a resolution to exit legally.
That is good info regarding placing a notice in the local newspaper regarding outstanding claims against the deceased.....our small town newspaper still does that.
We uploaded the report that was on CTV news regarding last night's meeting. It seems we are getting lots of exposure. I am confident things will work out for the best interest of the owners that want out.
I bet that's their plan, kind of like what happened with The Lodges at Horseshoe years ago! It was gutted and renovated into a condo (privately owned units) with units selling for close to $300K to near $500K!Perhaps a developer will take them over and turn them into condo hotels? Hello Wyndham? Skyline?
