Lemon Lion Consulting Explains Why Lawyers Can’t Help With Your Timeshare Exit

Originally published on gritdaily.com.

Timeshares might initially seem appealing, offering the promise of shared vacation property ownership at a fraction of the cost. However, the reality is often far less attractive. Timeshares hold zero property value or equity, and getting out of a timeshare contract can be nearly impossible. Lemon Lion Consulting, a leading timeshare exit company, explains why even hiring a lawyer may not help.

 

High Legal Costs

One of the main reasons you may be looking to break away from a timeshare is the overwhelming cost. Even if you don’t use the property, you are still responsible for annual fees (that can increase yearly). Additionally, there is the constant threat of foreclosure if you fail to pay on time.

With these expenses weighing on you, the last thing you need is to worry about additional costs. Hiring a lawyer to help you get out of the timeshare can be very expensive. Lawyers who handle timeshare cases do not work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you’ll have to pay for their services regardless of the outcome, which can further strain your finances.

It’s important to understand that a lawyer will typically take your case and attempt to send a few letters to the resort. However, once the resort is aware that you are represented by a lawyer, they often stop communicating because they are not required to talk to anyone who is not on the deed or contract, including a lawyer. When communication stops, you will have to continue to pay for additional letters to be sent before potentially going into costly litigation. This can lead to even more money down the drain as you attempt to sue a multi-billion dollar industry with an ironclad contract.

 

No Specialized Experience

Another crucial point to understand is that there are no lawyers who specialize exclusively in timeshare exits. While some may claim to be experts, this is often not the case. There are no law firms dedicated solely to facilitating timeshare exits, meaning a lawyer could struggle with your case while still charging you significant fees. This lack of specialized experience can result in prolonged legal battles and additional costs, leaving you financially strained and no closer to resolving your timeshare issues.

 

No Guarantees

Turning to a lawyer to help you out of a timeshare agreement doesn’t guarantee success. Lawyers are bound by their professional ethics and bar licenses, which prohibit them from guaranteeing the outcome of any case. This means you could end up with a pile of legal fees and nothing to show for it. This approach can be especially risky when you’re already dealing with the stress and financial burden of a timeshare. Without a guarantee of results, relying on a lawyer might only leave you feeling like there is no hope of a resolution.

 

Can Damage Your Chances

Hiring a lawyer could actually decrease your chances of success. As soon as the timeshare company realizes they are dealing with a lawyer, they might shut down the conversation and refuse to engage. Any chance of negotiation could disappear if the other party feels threatened, which can often happen.

This means the case would likely need to go to court for litigation, resulting in more legal fees, more waiting, and more stress. Litigation also doesn’t guarantee success, so you could end up right back where you started, with even more expenses and frustration.

 

Turning to Experienced Consultants

Getting out of a timeshare isn’t a straightforward process, and relying on a lawyer might not be the best approach. Instead, consider turning to experienced consultants who specialize in navigating the complexities of timeshare contracts. These professionals have the expertise to tackle the unique challenges timeshares present. By choosing a knowledgeable and reputable consulting firm, you can save yourself both time and money, avoiding the pitfalls and additional costs that come with legal representation.
