If you find yourself in a situation where you bought a timeshare and now you want to get rid of it, you still have the right to cancel the contract. Learn about your timeshare cancellation rights in Mexico

Many people purchase a timeshare expecting it to be a great acquisition and a good investment. But timeshares need to be looked up as a purchase, instead of an investment. By the time the maintenance fees and the assessment fees start to pour in, they become conscious they got their selves into what could be an exorbitant trouble, full of debts, headaches and unnecessary problems.

What you have to know first, is that each timeshare purchase made in Mexico fall under the jurisdiction of the Mexican laws, even if you come from a different country.  Therefore, you have to be completely sure you understand every line of the contract before signing any paperwork: read the fine print, look for reviews of the company and always ask questions. By following those simple suggestions, you’ll keep yourself away from a scam. In the following paragraphs we’ll explain your timeshare cancellation rights in Mexico.


Timeshare Cancellation Rights – The Sales

Under the Mexican law, the only way a company can make a timeshare sale in Mexico is by notifying itself with the Industrial Development of Mexico Department as well as the Ministry of Commerce. If the company hasn’t notified itself to any of those departments, it is not authorized to sell timeshare properties.

Timeshare Cancellation Rights – The Standards

The Mexican Secretary of Tourism (SECTUR) governed some regulations that the Timeshare Resorts in Mexico must comply.  Also, every Timeshare Organization must follow the requirements established by the National Registry of Tourism. Those requirements specify that the resort is obligated to obey financial and safety standards. Nonetheless, since the guidelines haven’t been changed since 1989, it doesn’t mention any conduct rules for the resort employees or consequences for dishonest sales practices.  

Timeshare Cancellation Rights – The cancellation period

According to the Mexican Consumer Protection Agency (PROFECO), which is the one that establishes the costumer’s timeshare cancellation rights, the company must provide a 5 day rescission period, so the purchaser has the right to cancel the contract within 5 days since the timeshare agreement was signed. This law was made in order to protect those consumers who are easily persuaded and make quick purchases without reading the complete contract. If the contract does not mention the rescission period and you have the documents to prove it, there’s a big possibility that the company end up losing their license. A client should be able to cancel the timeshare during the cooling off period without any penalty.

Timeshare Cancellation Rights – After the cancellation period

Unfortunately, in most cases timeshare owners don’t know their timeshare cancellation rights when signing the contract, and they realize they have been scammed after the rescission period has already passed. In these situations, cancelling the contract becomes a difficult task, given that the agreement is made to make sure that the resort’s interests are protected. Without enough evidence, it is very hard for the victim to prosecute the company.

    We desperately need help. VidantaResort took us for a lot of money through fast talk, alcohol and generally wearing is down. We tried to rescind but I called 3 days after the cancellation date. No returned call. I begged by e-mail will no response. We need help we cannot afford this astronomical cost.

    I would like to know if your company can truly help a consumer get rid of timeshares. I have experienced several companies want money upfront. I was told this is a scam when any company want money upfront.

    knowing this, It's amazing how they operate all rats resorts, amazes me more as there are many types of ways to rip you off, it's disgusting how all these evils steal your money trusting that what you offer at the resort is the best in the world, if you do not want to get in trouble better evade anything having to do with timeshares

    Well is true that ever person that acquire a timeshares has their rights, but the ugly part is that the resort dont respect that rights, is very annoying how the salespeople evry minute call to you and telling that when we gonna pay our maintenance fees, we always say the same answer , and is "we dont have a timeshare" so many of this resorts are scam

  • CristianJuly 18, 2014, 2:28 pm

    muchos resorts te hacen renunciar a tus derechos como el del periodo de 5 dias para cancelar, no es justo :/

  • TonyAJuly 8, 2014, 11:08 am
