How to Cancel Your Westgate Timeshare
It's frustratingly difficult to cancel Westgate timeshares. Timeshare companies use vague language in their contracts, and they're hard to get ahold of. Their employees rely on language barriers and clever sales tactics to draw in new customers who feel stuck with no idea how to get out of their timeshare and nowhere to turn for help.
DoNotPay is the world's first robot lawyer that can solve these kinds of problems. This convenient legal advisor will guide you to freedom by helping you cancel your Westgate timeshare in no time.
Don't settle for paying monthly fees each month because you feel stuck. Let's look at how DoNotPay can help you out.
Canceling Your Timeshare During the Rescission Period
Every timeshare contract has a rescission period, or a period of time where the individual can terminate -- or "rescind" -- the contract without penalties. Westgate's rescission period varies, depending on your home state, and the contract's verbiage on the matter is intentionally vague.
Depending on your contract, you will have a number of days to cancel your timeshare without any problems. To cancel your Westgate contract during the rescission period, you need to do the following:
- Write a letter of termination to Westgate Resorts
- Specifically note that you wish to cancel your Westgate timeshare contract
- Include the name of the property and your contract number
- Sign and date your letter
- Send your termination letter via certified mail before the rescission date
- Make sure a signature is required
How to Cancel a Westgate Timeshare Contract by Yourself
There are a few ways to attempt to exit your Westgate timeshare contract yourself. Most require time and money, and none of them are guaranteed to work. Here are some strategies you can try on your own.
Contact the Westgate Legacy Program
The Westgate Legacy Program offers a few ways to potentially help clients who wish to cancel their timeshare contracts. You can contact the company directly to cancel your timeshare if you'd like to discuss one of the following three scenarios:
- Financial Hardship
- End of Lifecycle Scenarios
- Transfer Deed to a Family Member
If you try this approach, you'll need to call Westgate Resorts during regular business hours. Expect to be on hold for an extended period of time as well, since canceling your contract is very low on the company's list of priorities. Additionally, you'll need to present extensive proof in order for the company to help.
The Westgate Legacy Program may seem like a way out, but it's not that cut and dry. The company requires detailed evidence that you are financially strapped and cannot pay. Westgate Resorts clearly states that they will not help anyone who has ever been late or missed a payment. If you've paid your monthly fee on time every month, you can attempt to receive their help.
Sell Your Timeshare
As a Westgate timeshare owner, you can try selling your timeshare to a new owner. Westgate Resorts does not offer a buyback program, and they will not help you sell your property in any way. To sell your timeshare, you would need to hire a real estate agent and hope that someone would be interested in purchasing it. It is very difficult to sell a timeshare since most people are looking for ways to cancel their contracts.
Hire an Exit Company
If you go this route, the exit company will help you to successfully cancel your Westgate timeshare. Unfortunately, they'll also expect you to pay them thousands of dollars in fees.
Stop Paying Your Monthly Fees
If you stop paying your monthly fees, your timeshare will go into foreclosure. Just like if you stopped paying your mortgage, your credit score will suffer tremendously.
