Contracts, Warranties, Buying Tips

questions & answers

Question: Purchased 2 timeshares in late 90's, which worked well for family at the time and both are paid off in full and current with fees. Life changes, health changes, it no longer works. Have researched to find possible resolution to cancel/terminate contract and have found nothing but SCAMS! Granted, it wasn't the brightest idea to purchase but let's claim it a "lesson learned". I now am trying to educate myself on the law and it's been pretty difficult finding answers and people I can trust or those who do "timeshares". Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: You would be wise to invest in a consultation with a private attorney with whom you can discuss your situation in detail, determine what your rights and responsibilities are under the contract(s), and learn what your current best options are. The State Bar of Arizona, which regulates attorneys, maintains an online Find a Lawyer page here: http://www.azbar.org/findalawyer.
