Did not see anything previously written about being able to do this. If two families purchased an annual timeshare resale is it possible to change the deed so that one family can each have the "every other year odd" week and the second family the "every other year even" week. Would it have to be okay'ed by the timeshare company such as a Marriott or Hyatt etc.? Hope to get some input. Thanks

No - You could both be on the same deed, but that could get messy. Why not just buy an every other year timeshare, so you don't have to worry about anyone else?

It was just a thought. I'v seen a couple of timeshares I would have been intersted in if they were every other year but they are annuals. One of my friends was also interested, which is why I was inquiring.

so the only way to get an every other year is to purchase one that was original sold as one from the developer?

Exactamundo. I suggest searching the Internet for a resale EOY week at the particular resort(s) in which you are interested. To say that it is a "buyer's market" right now would certainly be a gross undertstatement.

You could ask the management, and who knows, they might agree do that. In any event, they should have no objection if you and the other family place title in a partnership or trust formed by both of you to manage its maintenance and use in that way. Although, IMHO, it'd be a mistake to entangle your finances with another family.

Maybe, But Not Likely.

Unlikely.

I mean, even if management turns out to be OK with the idea, frequently the Master Condo Association Documents contain a restriction against further subdividing the deeded timeshare ownerships -- e.g., an every-year deed has to remain every-year, a 3BR lock-off cannot be re-deeded as standalone 1- & 2BR units, etc.

Why not just buy the timeshare in partnership with the other family, and have a written agreement between you about the use of the property? While you're at it, you'll probably want the agreement to cover disposition in case of death of one or more parties.

The usage agreement would not be enforceable by the resort -- they'd allow any of the parties to reserve at any time. But as long as you trust the other party and have clearly written down the agreement, it sounds OK to me.

If you don't trust them to this level, buy separate EOY's.

I think I would prefer to wait for an eoy resort rather then have to depend on someone else. That way I am in control of what happens and I won't have to worry about someone else fullfilling their obligation. Just thought I would check. Maybe it was an easy fix, but I quess not.

I have a thought for you to consider. In a TS like Wyndham you could purchase a smaller number of annual points and then put them in the points credit pool and use them in addition to the next year's regular points and reserve a nicer unit every other year than you could annually. Possibly a 2-BR presidential in a newer resort versus a 2-BR deluxe in an older resort?

Actually, not a bad idea. You could also aggregate your points like this to reserve in a better season. For example, in the Hilton system, you won't get many points if you buy a unit in the Silver or Bronze seasons, but thru "depositing" and/or "borrowing," you could aggregate enuff points for a stay in a Platinum season EOY.

FYI - I did have my brother in law and his wife on a dead with me.

It got confusing in that he wasn't on my RCI account so he couldn't actually make trades.

He could stay at the resort for the week no problem.

He didn't actually do that many trades and most were within the Home Group so never needed a guest pass.

The only real benifit he didn't have to pay for an RCI account for only 1 timeshare.
