Hi jc0425
I called and spoke to someone in Westgate's Legacy Program. The female I spoke to was very nice and well informed.
They told me the cost depends on when Westgate was contacted & demand and inventory of the ownership. What 'did' you own & when did you get out of Westgate? They say the range is from $750-$1500 and could change monthly depending on what you own , the demand and inventory they have for what you own and when you contact them.
We own a 2 bedroom 2 bath in Kissemee. We own every other year. It would be interesting to know when you got out and what you owned. I see you owned at Westgate Vacation Villas...as we do....our villa is in the double letters.

Someone just reported they contacted the legacy program and was told they were denied because westgate had too much inventory at the current time :(

Im hoping this didnt signal the end of this program and it was just a fluke occurrence!

We Just did the same. We have been owners at Westgate Vacation Villas in Kissimmee, since 92. We owned an annual week , around the easter spring break. It cost us $750 also to deed it back... but good riddance. We used it only sporadically after the kids were out on their own, and since the advent of the internet, have been able to find equal accommodations for far less, and absent the $1000 maintenance fees. So it was a total waste of money. They first ask if we wanted to transfer the deed to a family member, or wanted to try and sell it on our own, I declined both, and the girl on the phone said it would cost us $750. So we took that offer. Our week was paid off years ago, and we had no outstanding fees due, so it was not a problem.

It's March, 2019, I am starting my " Deed Back" process. They told me it would cost $1,000. My maintenance is $ 850. I'm going to do it because I want OUT!!

I am just starting this process now. Keeping my fingers crossed. How long does the process usually take?

I called yesterday and they said they will take mine back for $2,000... is it really as simple as that? I hate to pay it but maintenance fees if almost 1,000 will be due in January, so we are thinking we should. I’m just nervous it will really be that simple?

Westgate Vacation Villas Owner from Canada. I can understand why US resident would need to sell/buy out to eliminate this liability and potential for bad credit. How would this affect us? Any other Canadians simply drop this in order to get out??

I received this message back from the Legacy group.."Can you please submit all correspondence, contract or payments you had with the resale company". I do have my timeshare listed at SMTN, are they asking me to provide my contract with them. I do not believe I have one.
