Help needed re paperwork

Hope you can help. We want to sell our [(with Charter Membership) in a US Timeshare.] We are currently in the US (Florida) until April of next year but don't have any of the paperwork relating to our ownership of the Unit with us as we weren't expecting to sell.

Do you know if there is a way a sale could be transacted without the actual paperwork? I presume the Hotel or Court would have details of our purchase several years ago.

I did sell one week way back through a company called Prodox but I had the paperwork in Florida with me at the time. Now I can't seem to find this company on the internet any more. Unfortunately being British we don't know much about the legal requirements for timeshare sales.

Any help you could give me would be much appreciated.

Once owned these: FirstFairway@Walden X 2; Lawai Beach; ManhattanClub; PuebloBonitoRose; 4 South Africa--now timeshare-free
Contact the home owners' association for your resort and see if they can help you. Start by calling the resort and hopefully they can direct you to the person who would know about your ownership.

I believe the county recorder's office would have all of the paperwork that would be need. It would show the owners; what is owned; and the usage time.

Is anything else needed?

You may be putting the cart before the horse- which normally isn't a good way to make progress..

If you have a ready buyer- simply contact a closing company that handles timeshares.. They can pull the deed copy from public records and prepare the transfer documentation. They will also be able to provide you with notary access (which can be problematical for foreign sellers)..

Don't bother looking for Prodox.. That company shut down a few years ago.. Susan Gayle is now with Timeshare Transfer in Vero Beach.

There are numerous closing agents available to you. PM me with the resort you own if you want a few referrals.


If you don't have a buyer- none of this really matters until you do..

Thanks for this idea. I have written an email to the resort and asked for the name of the person in charge of the Home Owner's Association. Also, where we have a holiday home in The Villages, Florida, there is a Timeshare Owners Group. I will contact them to see if anyone is interested. If so I will take up the offer of closing agents names given to me by richardm or any other suggestions other people might have.
