What happens to a timeshare when the owner dies? Many believe that the contract gets cancelled, but that is not often the case

We have learned that timeshares are not a purchase that anyone can handle. Many defrauded timeshare owners try to get rid of their properties by listing their units on several websites for a dollar, without having any success. However, what happens to your timeshare when you die? Does the property get transferred to your family? Find out the answer to this question by reading this article.

Timeshare contract – The key to know what happens to your timeshare when you die

Because your timeshare contract will certainly establish what happens to your timeshare when you die in one of its clauses, we highly recommend you to read the timeshare agreement cautiously. Some timeshares can be inherited, while others can be owned by more than one person, however, whatever the contract says, the truth is that all of the clauses will always benefit the resort.  Also, ask as many questions as possible during the presentation if you are seriously considering acquiring a fractional ownership.


What happens to your timeshare when you die?

 This will depend on several factors:

  • Joint ownership: This is when more than one party owns the timeshare. In this case, if one dies, the other gains full ownership of the property.

  • Inheritance: Some timeshares can be inherited. In this case, when the owner dies, the successors of the timeshare will have to take care of the future payments.

  • Probate: When the timeshare contract is under the name of one person only, the property will enter into probate when this person dies. This means that the timeshare will be handed down to another person, according to the deceased's will.

  • The resort takes it back: Some resorts take the property back once the owner dies; however, this is not a common scenario.

    I've been trying to sell my timeshare on eBay, but I haven't receive any offer. Is very difficult and I can't keep paying for the maintenance fees. I need some help!

    My parents have me listed with a timeshare company to inherit their timeshare. I don't want anything to do with it, but I don't want to insult them. I see it as being given a bill in the form of annual maintenance fees. Is there a way to disinherit the timeshare when my parents pass?

    a mi me gustaria que se pudiese dejar en herencia a algun familiar, yo nunca he tenido problemas con mi timeshare y no me gustaria perderlo

    i have a timeshare agreement in perpetuity based on the legal requirements within the British Virgin islands

    i am concerned that this could be passed onto my children when i die

    i would like to get out of this agreement now

    Muy buen articulo, siempre queda esa duda, seria una lastima que aunque fuese un caso no tan comun.. el resort se quedara con el tiempo compartido, habria sido todo una perdida de dinero

    The liabilities of many timeshare are transferred to your estate after your death. Your children may have to deal with the high and potentially increasing fees.
