My wife and I accepted an invitation to attend a timeshares-owners informational presentation by Vacation Consulting Services (VSC). The presentation lasted about two hours during which time a buffet dinner was provided. The material provided covered a wide range of information including new laws which affect the timeshare share industry and ownership; maintenance fees paid by owners; and exit strategies for those owners who may wish to discontinue their ownership and their obligation to pay the associated costs, maintenance fees, and financially contracts. The VCS presenters were very knowledgeable of the industry and very professional in the presentation of the information. The presentation was relaxed, friendly, interesting, and very informative. After one-on-one discussion with a VCS associate my wife and I choose keep our timeshare-ownership under the current terms and conditions. But we are now better informed of what our options are going forward and we were provided with a better understanding of how that ownership may affect our heirs and we will be able to give timely consideration to those issues in our future estate-planning. I would recommend that anyone who owns, or who may be expecting to purchase or inherent a time-share attend a VCS informational presentation if they have the opportunity to do so. The information they gain will equip them to make well-informed decisions from a position of knowledge and understanding of the industry and the laws which control it.
