Costs to Get Out of a Timeshare On average, it costs about $5,000 to $6,000 and takes 12–18 months to get out of your timeshare contract using a timeshare exit company. But the cost and the timeframe can vary depending on a number of factors including, how many contracts are attached to your timeshare.
While it’s usually not necessary to provide a reason for canceling the timeshare contract, you do need to explicitly state that the purpose of the letter is to rescind the contract. A statement like “I am contacting you within the rescission period to cancel this timeshare contract” will usually work.
Is there a class action suit against Diamond Resorts?

If you stop paying it, the timeshare company will do whatever it takes to collect. They’ll make phone calls and send letters, then they’ll assign it over to (you guessed it) a collections company. If you still don’t pay, the situation sinks even further into foreclosure and possible legal action against you.
No, the timeshare has no value, because you don’t own anything in the normal sense of the word. It’s not like your regular home, which likely has some equity built up. In fact, a timeshare goes down in value from the moment you sign the contract. There are much better ways to invest your hard-earned money.
Canceling your timeshare can also be difficult due to financial reasons. Resorts are notorious for encouraging people to make a down payment on a credit card. Putting a substantial investment on your credit card is never a wise idea. Your interest rates will skyrocket, and it’ll take you a while to pay it down.
Some people just stop paying on their timeshares. If you do walk away, don’t be surprised to see a big hit to your credit score and to start getting regular calls from collection agencies. You might regret your purchase, but you did sign a legally binding contract.
Avoid using timeshare exit companies that require upfront payments. Say no, hang up and move on to one of the following solutions.
- Stop paying. Before you do this, take stock of your situation.
- Offer it on the resale market.
- Use a company to help you exit.
Here’s some insight into costs and what to expect. On average, the cost of professional cancellation services is around $4,000. This typically gets you a team that will work with your timeshare company on a settlement or manages the resale process for you.
You can’t just walk away from a timeshare. That’s because they often come with an obligation to pay maintenance fees for as long as you own them. It says 85 percent of timeshare owners who go to contract regret their purchase.
If you die owning a timeshare, it does become part of your estate and obligations are indeed passed onto the next-of-kin or the estate’s beneficiaries. However, they do not have to accept it, in the same way that anyone has the right to refuse any part of an inheritance.
