I don't know where else to put this but since it involves a timeshare in North Carolina, thought this was an okay place, but if it more appropriately belongs somewhere else, please move. One of the three weeks we own at BIS Duck is a Week 37 and while we love the September weather, our current unit for that week has a lot of steps that are becoming a problem as we get older. There is another Week 37 which is perfect for our needs, and in which we have stayed a few times. The owner of this particular week and unit is a LLC which has not paid the maintenance fees for the past four years nor have they paid a special assessment, consequently the unit can be rented to recoup some of these fees. One of the goals of the Home Owners Association is to get more maintenance fee paying owners, and it seems like a win/win if we were able to buy this unit, but the LLC is no where to be found. I suspect they are a "Viking Ship" type company to which the prior owner paid a fee to sell, the LLC might have paid the fees for one or two years, but hasn't paid anything since. My understanding is that all correspondence has come back "address unknown." I have tried to contact them by phone and it just rings and rings. Wondering if there is any way short of a foreclosure (which I think costs thousands of dollars) that the HOA can get the unit back and I can buy it - I am willing to pay what I think is a reasonable market rate and then I would sell or give away our unit with all the steps? By the way, my husband was elected to the Board just last year, so we both are wondering about this. Thanks for any help.
