I purchased a timeshare from SUMDAY Vacations on eBay and they sent me a Quit Claim Deed! I never received a contract from this company, and I was shocked to receive a Quit Claim Deed because this doesn't guarantee anything. What should I do?

That's standard operation for Sumday Vacations. Anyone ever wonder why Sumday is so fast on delivery? Here you go...

Please give me more information

Ms. Fox,
Sumday Vacations record's indicate that you've purchased 3 Sheraton properties, a Summer Bay and a Jockey Club from us since 11/18/2011. I've just reviewed the files I'm referring to and all look to be on Warranty Deed's, can you tell me the property name/owner name on the deed you say is a quit claim, so I can actually review what your referring to before I respond to your concerns?

Jeff,

Please email ASAP at the email address you should have for me from my previous purchases and I'll email a copy of my recorded Quit Claim deed to you.

Jeff,

The inventory control number is: SV25064-18813. For security purposes, if you need additional information to review this file, please email me ASAP.

Liz,
I've found it, the reason I was having a problem is that there was also a Corrective Deed filed and is still at the recorder to correct that error. This was one of our new deeding officer's that made the error. When it was found by one of the other deeding officer's a Corrective Deed with all Warranty Deed covenants was sent for recording also and you should be receiving that shortly.

I would also like to point out that even though this deed states quit claim, it still is written with the protective covenants and it will properly convey the title to you. We have been in constant contact with Tricom Management to ensure the title is transferring exactly as stated in our advertisement.

PCC = Post Card Company, a name derived from the way they usually solicited business when they started, although that is changing now.

These are scammy companies that try to stampede timeshare owners into paying them ~$3K per timeshare week to take the weeks off of the owners hands. Some of the major ebay sellers get much if not all of their inventory from PCC's, but that does not mean they are necessary part of PCC part of the business.

What is a PCC?

A PCC is a company that helps owners that are near financial ruin, unable to sell or even give away their timeshares dispose of them for them...This of course comes with a hefty fee in most cases, sometimes in excess of thousands of dollars, but if you are unable to sell or Give away a TS with a $2000 MF, these fees are nothing compared to the long term costs of keeping it or the MAJOR, devastating hit your credit takes from a Foreclosure

PCC is NOT always a bad thing, but there have been a few examples of PCC's that didn't follow through with their promises, so you have to be careful when dealing with them...i still say 'don't throw out the baby with the bathwater'

Post Card Company. It is my understanding that the name orginally came from companies of questionable reputation sending out postcards to timeshare owners trying to get them to give them big bucks to get rid of their timeshare. So the story goes, they take the sellers money take minimial steps to move the property. If it did not sell, then the owner keeps the timeshare and the PCC keeps the money. They have more sophicated means and tactics these days. Of the regular posters on TUG, Ride is the one that appears to be the most knowledgable of PCCs and is a major defender of the work they do. If his implication was intended that the company name involved in this thread is a PCC .... The real issue here is does the buyer get the timeshare they wanted under the adverised terms, not wether or not Sumday is a PCC.

You sound like an ad for a PCC.

UPDATE:

Jeff and I have been emailing each other and he has been very responsive. Everything is being taken care of, so this should no longer be an issue since I will receive a Corrective Deed. I know mistakes do happen, and it's very nice when someone helps yhou with an issue this quickly. I can now sleep tonight!

RideWithMe fails to add that after you pay the PCC big $$$ to get rid of your timeshare - they often do not...
Just a minor detail... {sarcasm}

I have had only great experiences with Sumday and Jeff. Specifically, I bid on a property and had second thoughts after winning the bid. I emailed Jeff and apologized, then I told him I would take another one he had listed. He let me switch the two (same property, one in points, and one was a floating week). He's a stand-up guy.

Many of the timeshares I have purchased have been trade-ins. Developers offer a specified amount of money in "equity" for an older timeshare property, and this is part of the sales pitch.

I got a prime ski week in Summit County at our favorite resort, and it was a trade by this older couple to Welk Points. Who got the better deal, I wonder? I got a prime ski week for $325. It was worth 37 TPU's this year for $500 in MF's.

The older couple paid the developer tens of thousands for Welk points. Both of us are happy with our purchases, I talked to the woman just a month ago, but who made out like a bandit?

The developer is the correct answer. :rofl:

I purchased several high end timeshares from Sumday vacations and have had only great experiences.
They were expensive ones and I wanted to verify the ownership before payment and Jeff provided all the info I requested.
I would buy from them again.

If I had a problem with Sumday, or any other timeshare company, for that matter, I'd try to resolve it with the company first, go to TUG next, and then take it to the BBB. At least for the past 6 months, Jeff has been responding very quickly to the public TUG complaints; and also appears to have been responding to the BBB complaints.

I've purchased three timeshares from Sumday and they were all great values, exactly as advertized and fast transactions, so they've earned my trust. The salesman I worked with is Dennis.

I agree. Give the selling company the first shot before going public with your issue.
