I am English.  I own a timeshare at Vacation Village at Bonaventure in Weston.  I am in semi retirement.  I pay about 900 USD maintenance and tax on a bi annual basis.  Because I live in England

I also pay RCI membership and exchange fees so that I can exchange to a timeshare week closer to the UK.  I could most definitely get more for my money if I did not have a timeshare.

I am afraid to try to sell or give away the deed because there are so many scammers.  If I foreclose (stop paying the bills) how will that affect me?  Is it just a case of poor credit rating?

Hello Penny,

Have you checked with the resort to see if they will take it back?  I know on a case by case basis some resorts would rather take a deedback then having to go through foreclosure. I would check with Daily Management for a deed back department. Just explain your situation as to why you want to deed it back.

If you have any other questions please let me know.
