I have one floating week at the Manhattan Club in NYC. The unit is an executive suite.
Let me know what other details you'd like to know.
Manhattan Club has the First Right of Refusal on all sales. With the amount it costs to get a transfer done, your first step is to send a purchase contract stating that you have sold your ownership for $1.00 to (Insert fictitious person here). At that point, they will decide if they want to take it back or not (pray they do).
If they don't, then you are looking at coming out of pocket to get out of it. Everyone can tell you eBay, as much as they want, but, even then, you will be coming out of pocket. The same goes for "Giving it away", as well.
Manhattan Club charges a $1,000 transfer fee. On top of that, you will have to deal with the recording of the deed in the City of New York, where the recording fee will run around $400 (not inclusive of closing costs). The cost of the transfer is already at $1400 prior to any third party company getting their piece of the action. Tag on another $300 min. in closing costs, depending on who you go through and you're at $1700 for the transfer. Who do you think is going to be responsible for that? The buyer? Good luck with even splitting that down the middle. For every eBay auction you see go down, you're looking at a good chance of a NPB strike against the buyer.
Then there's the use year problem. Manhattan Club doesn't run on a calendar use year program. There are several different use years that are reflective of when maintenance fees are due. Reservations are booked pretty solid through June and, probably will be even longer by the time the transfer is ready to be completed. So, who's going to want to pay the $1,800+ maintenance fee and not even be guaranteed a week they can use. So, now you're looking at maybe eating your maintenance fee for 2012. Ugh...you can see where this is going, now.
At any rate, start with the First Right of Refusal. If you need any help, please feel free to send me a Private Message and I can give you the information needed for to get you started. For all the naysayers out there, no, my information doesn't cost a dime.
