Fraudulent Forclosure - Failure to Provide Notice - Unauthorized Charges - Failure to Resolve Good Faith Dispute
I have been an owner since 1996. Prior to Jan. 2008 I was current on all payments due the Resort. In Janu a new maintenance fee (Approx. $376) became due. However, as a result of my move, the mail providing notice of the fee did not reach me. I realized in late July or Early Aug. 2008 that I had overlloked the fee payment and took the initiative to try to pay it. I was told it had been sent to forclosure. My timeshare does not have a mortgage, and th only fee was the maintenace. I was told after several efforts at trying to pay by the law office handling the "foreclosure" that they didn't have a record that the matter had been referred, but several days later that the fee then due was $850., including attorneys fees added of $250.00. I disputed the chrages and asked for referral to a person with settlement authority. The attorney's office refused. But said they woul get back to me. Today 12/31/2008, I was told that the chrages are now over $1000. I have yet to receive any notice in writing, of any legal action taken or a responsible person who can settle the matter. The attorney's office apears to be attempting to forclose without atuhority. I am concerned that the attorney's office is trying to profit from the oversight to pay a mantenance fee by adding unsupported charges and initiating foreclosure while hiding their actions from owners (a denial of my due process rights and property rights).
