CEO of Timeshare Legal, Christian Highlander, Divulges Fees Associated With Timeshare Ownership and How Avoid Them
Owning a timeshare comes with fees that owners may not know about when buying, notes Christian Highlander, CEO of Timeshare Legal LLC.
CEO Christian Highlander and Timeshare Legal LLC shed a light on mandatory fees that come with owning a timeshare and what to do about them. The purchase price is just the beginning when it comes to paying for a timeshare, as there are additional fees involved. And for some, the costs for owning a timeshare may just outweigh the benefits.
CEO Christian Highlander and Timeshare Legal LLC highlights the most common fees timeshare owners face:
- Maintenance fees. Owners must pay these fees for the operation costs of a timeshare unit. Each timeshare may cover different things under these fees but can include upkeep for onsite pools, landscaping, tennis courts and pest control. These fees vary widely with the location of the resort but typically range anywhere from $200 to $2,000-plus annually, adds Timeshare Legal LLC.
- Membership fees. CEO Christian Highlander explains that these fees may be charged for allowing owners to have certain privileges or benefits on top of ownership. Golf access or affiliated country club membership are examples of what may be covered by these fees.
- Assessment fees. These fees are highly variable because they cover unforeseen events that may affect the condition of the timeshare such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires and the like. Timeshare Legal LLC notes that while these special fees are not the norm, they may be charged when disasters strike and owners must pay them in a timely fashion.
- Annual fees. These yearly fees are not always brought to the attention of timeshare buyers, notes CEO Christian Highlander. Most timeshare resorts charge owners an annual fee for the privilege of ownership.
- Exchange fees. Owners who wish to trade or exchange their timeshare units are usually responsible for paying a fee.
The best way to avoid paying all of the fees completely is to cancel timeshare membership, and the way to do that is to reach out to a reputable company to help. CEO Christian Highlander shares, Timeshare Legal LLC has helped many timeshare owners get out of their contracts, so contacting this group can be the first step towards peace of mind.
