It occurs to me that in these discussions regarding inheriting a timeshare, there is a general assumption that it is an obligation, not a benefit, and is unwanted, so the preponderance of the advice is how not to inherit it.
I'm saying that as opposed to advice given to people who come here trying to find out how to get rid of an unwanted timeshare, and a good portion of the advice is on how to use it better, probably because trying to get rid of a timeshare is so problematic for the actual owner.
I guess the difference might be that in the case of inheriting a timeshare, the person never had a desire for it, and in the case of trying to get rid of one, the person did have a desire for it, or at least what they perceived it would be, at one time.
I'm trying to say this right, which I don't always do, but in one case it is almost always perceived as an obligation and in the other it is almost always perceived as something of benefit, when, in fact, for the person seeking advice, in both cases it is something they see only as an obligation and they came here to get advice on how to get rid of it.
Or, in one case the person has a legal right to not accept it and in the other the person has a legal responsibility to be stuck with it. But, still, in both cases, for the person seeking advice, it is seen as an obligation, not a benefit.
