I have contacted the Villa Group (Resort.com; Universal Vacation Club) to see about cancelling our contract. At first there was no help. Then a person from the administration wrote that we could surrender the contract if it is fully paid up, which it is. I called the number provided and was told they would send the needed documents to us and when asked is there a fee for this, told no there isn't. Now the paperwork has arrived and there certainly is a fee, equal to another year's maintenance fee. I find that frustrating, as we've paid for this membership faithfully for many years and really enjoyed the vacations we have had, but don't want to pay again to leave it behind now. Since the company that services these contracts is based in CA, does that matter? What to do now is a question.
