Bluegreen Corporation / maintence fees
Being Held Hostage by Time Share Maintence Fees!
If you are considering buying a time share- DON"T! You are much better off just paying for the weekend package or weekly package by the hotel or resort. AVOID Time-Shares! Let me tell you my story...
I have and are still paying on time - every month (5 years) for the mortage "the right" to own a timeshare from the Blue Green Corporation. I have not missed a payment once and yet I have never even used my Time Share! Why?!! Because of the Home Owners/Maintence Fees!
I was not properly informed at the time of contractual agreement that I would be responsible for paying an additional $500 for the upkeep of the timeshare resort! When I did find out that - was the case, I tried to neogotiate with them to see if I could apply the additional fees to my monthly mortage payments (like how taxes are applied to your residential mortgage) but their response was "no."
They then told me that I could use a portion of my unused "points" to cover the maintence fees and while never - ever having used my time-share to this day (5 years later!) they took 50, 000 points to pay for a minimal portion of my maintence fees, then told me that I would have to pay the rest up front before I was allowed the privelege to use the timeshare. And to make matters worse - they locked me out of the timeshare, because I have not paid the maintence fees - there fore I am unable to sell my time-share!
I am literally stuck!
If you are reading this, and you are considering a time-share please be careful! I am still paying the mortage for a time-share I have never used, nor do I plan to use in the near future. I have payed over $8, 000 so far all on time without a payment missed, and now they are threatening to foreclose on me because I was unable to pay the additional maintence fees upfront - all in one lump sum!
Please I beg of you - read the fine print and have a lawyer go over the fine print with you! Don't be a victim!
If there is anyone out there who can help me, or know of a consumer organization to help folks like me, please let me know. I appreciate your time in reading this letter.
