I own timeshares and like them, some don't, that's cool

At one time years ago, I wanted to seel them,

I gave one of these companies money, that was a laugh,

Answers, I can't offer any, because I just don't know.

Don't give anyone money up front!!!!!

Dear Graham,

Just noticed your problem of August 2012 of trying to sell your timeshare.

Hope you had success but if not then contact TATOC who will advise and put you in contact with reputable companies and without upfront charges.

Don't go anywhere near this company (http://www.sellmytimeshare.tv/). The company registration number on their website doesn't belong to Hollywood Marketing Limited (which is not a registered UK company). It has a zero credit rating, the company was formed with £1.00 and the 1 current director joined the company on 27.04.2011. It s a non trading company registered in the name: RICHARDSON COOPER INGRAM LTD

Be careful doing this Graham. These companies are ruthless. I don't want to worry you but if you own UK property they can try and claim any unpaid fee's against your property. I've not looked at all the posts on this thread but may be considering giving it away free on Ebay or Gumtree and get the person to pay the title change over fee's etc. Good luck. (I am in the same position !)

You are now involving a solicitor??? They are almost is slick as timeshare sales people. I really think by hiring a solicitor you are throwing good money after bad. What do you really think they will accomplish? Let it go! NO company who wants money up front is ever going to sell your timeshare. Plus in todays market legit companies just aren't making any sales. Best advice is to just walk away and cut your losses NOW!
