Westgate Resorts / hoa/ownership

1 Orlando, FL, United States Review updated:

I have been an owner of a timeshare with WestGate orlando Resort for over 15 years. My timeshare is paid off but the HOA keeps going up. When i was sold on this it was presented so beautiful. The HOA was Low $400 now its upto almost $1000. Which i was laid to. Now i owed my HOA 2017 and i was going to pay and they took one of my payments and after that they put me in collections. Tried calling to settle not nice and told me to call the colection company which i never recieved a bill from. They make it very difficult for anyone to try to get out of this timeshare. I even told them too keep it just get me out of contract they would not do it. The Lie to consumers

    Same Experience West Gate Lakes Orlando purchased 2001 and no where in my contract does it state it would go up.
    My contract specifically states the fee is $329Per Time Share Interest owned and taxes will be billed separately by th OA.
    I understand Taxes going up but my maintenance fee is now $744 plus the taxes $835.
    In 16 years we have only been able to use it 2 x. banking it and trying to use it another time is a hassle and adds more fees.
    No where on any form with my signature does it say anything about increases.
    I have seen contracts from other HOA's that state every year there will be a vote on things like new roof or other large ticket repairs and maintenance then it will be put to a vote and owners would be billed for the agreed upon increase for the itemised repairs but the general fee remains the same. Not an increase with no accounting for what it is going to and at an unknown rate of increased like a fixed percentage rate.
    I would have never agreed to sign off to pay an unknown increase indefinitely.
    I would love a lawyers take on this. CLASS ACTION? I saw a couple sued them in Tennessee an received $500K !!!
