Timeshare Buyers Left Hanging in MA Timeshare Deal
Saturday, April 12, 2008
The March 31 Timeshare Owners Blog ran a post titled, They Wouldn’t Have this Problem if They’d Bought Timeshare Resales. We were looking at a situation that occurred when a timeshare developer presold timeshare units, in many cases without recording deeds, but failed to build the timeshare resort. In another instance, the resort is built and operational, but this same developer and his partner failed to pay bills on the property or to give owners their share of the timeshare rental money.
Robert Reposa of Hingham, MA, the property owner, now owes thousands of dollars in unpaid state and federal taxes, not to mention the restitution he owes to timeshare buyers at the two properties: the Navigator Beach Club and Beachside Village in Falmouth.
The MA Attorney General has 50 complaints from timeshare owners who paid for, but did not receive, deeds for the unfinished timeshare units at the Navigator Club. On Tuesday, the Navigator Beach Club was sold at auction to a man who says he does not intend to use it as a timeshare resort. What happens next is just a wait and see situation for timeshare buyers, some who are out as much as $50,000.
