Out of state owner died intestate and Galveston county clerks office informed us that an Affidavit of Heirship is what was needed to transfer the deed to the deceased owner's child, the only heir. Completed and recorded and sent to HICV and they now say they no longer accept the AOH and need to probate. Does anyone have information if full probate will need to be done or is there anothe option? A small estate affidavit looks to be only if owner lived in Texas so cannot be used. If it does need to be probated, any recommendations? LT Transfer does not handle TX timeshares. TIA

Does the heir want the timeshare? It seems like a perfect way to dispose of it if HICV is not accepting the transfer, tell them to accept it or they won't receive another nickel. Doesn't seem worth probating a timeshare with minimal value.

Yea, I'd just say to HICV take the transfer or leave it, and then if they don't take it, get a cheap resale in a different system for the person who wants a timeshare.

Yes he does want it along with a few of the cousins. Just need to figure out how to resolve this issue.

We were hoping to keep this one, there was also 2 other OL weeks which is going much smoother (already did the mini probate) and with the 3 the points were 350k, so we would like do what we can to keep it. The Galveston one is also signature points.
