I sold my timeshare in September 2007 that I owned at Orange Lake Country Club in Kissimmee Florida and that’s when my nightmare started. I only owned it for a year before I realized what a big mistake I made and sold it the next year!
It turns out that the new owners actually own the timeshare thru Orange County (state of Florida), but my husband and I still own it at Orange lake. There was 1 witness signature on the Quit Claim deed, which was fine for the county records, but Orange Lake requires 2 witness signatures! So for the last 2 years I have tried to get this resolved, and the new owners will not do anything to fix this situation.
Meanwhile, the new owners were able to use the timeshare that we technically still own according to Orange Lake and also receive the bills and now letters stating that they are going to send us into foreclosure on the property! The recovery manager sent us a form to release the property back to Orange Lake because of the situation – only to receive a call 2 weeks later saying we couldn’t do this because the new owners also need to sign off on this (because although they don’t own at Orange Lake they do own under the county deed).
I am so afraid that they will send this in under our credit report and financially ruin us. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Stuck in limbo with this silly timeshare. Any suggestions?
