A deed back clause or program allows you to give your timeshare back to the resort. Until then, you remain responsible for paying the maintenance and special assessment fees along with your mortgage payments.
If you want out entirely, the easiest way is to see if your developer or resort operator will take or buy back the timeshare at no cost. Some will even offer maintenance-free usage for a few years in return.
If you feel stuck, here are four options that could help:
- Refinance the timeshare mortgage.
- Sell or give away your timeshare.
- Try to give it back to the resort.
- Work with a company to help you negotiate an exit.
How Do I Cancel My Capital Vacations Timeshare Contract?
- (1) Contact Capital Vacations Resorts. One option is to contact your resort to see if you can self-negotiate an exit solution directly with the company.
- (2) Rental and Third-Party Resale.
- (3) Cancel your Capital Vacations Timeshare contract with a Timeshare Attorney.
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.
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.
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.
In fact, it can be hard to even give a timeshare away, let alone sell it. One of the reasons it can be so hard to sell a timeshare is because timeshare loans tend to have a higher interest rate than traditional home loans. For example, timeshare loans can have an interest rate from around 6% to 17%.
Let’s dive into the most common ways on how to get out of a timeshare—without ruining your credit.
- Talk to your developer about buying back your property.
- Gift your timeshare to a family member or friend.
- You may be able to cancel your ownership.
- Post your timeshare for sale.
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.

Legally speaking, a timeshare is a way for a number of people to share ownership of a property, usually a vacation property such as a condominium unit within a resort area. Each buyer usually purchases a certain period of time in a particular unit. Timeshares typically divide the property into one- to two-week periods.
