It all starts with “Hola amigos, come and see…”

Then comes a tour of the property. Margaritas get blended, brochures change hands, and promises get made. Then, through a fog of tequila it’s sign here, here, and here.

Congratulations. You now own a piece of paradise. Only it’s a paradise with hidden costs, ever changing “maintenance” fees, and sudden restrictions. That $15,000 timeshare now costs you ten times what you paid. Eventually, the phone begins to ring with collections agents. And if you don’t pay, the real estate company ruins your credit rating for life The Canadian government won’t help you, and neither will the Mexican consulate. (They can’t.) And no Canadian lawyer, however experienced, can handle a foreign legal system. You’re stuck with it.

Timeshare lawyers based in Ontario

Can an attorney get out of a bad timeshare? 

In a word, yes. We have successfully voided contracts, no matter what documents you signed. Fraud is fraud. The Mexican legal system doesn’t take it lightly when trained Mexican lawyers hold it accountable. 

Why is it so hard to get out of a timeshare?

For the average person, the different legal system and language is already a barrier. Layer on the raft of signed documents and the aggressive timeshare companies have leverage to keep you stuck. With legal representation, however, fraudulent agreements can become void

What about selling? Can I sell my timeshare back instead of voiding a contract?

Yes. We can help you sell your timeshare and recoup some of your costs so you can move on. Timeshare Aid can handle the entire transaction on your behalf. 

How do I know if I have signed a bad deal?

Maybe your fees are suddenly higher. Or there’s a sudden restriction to using your property. Perhaps you discover hidden costs or misleading rules. Any one of those issues could be a sign of fraud. 

My timeshare agreement is few years old. Is it too late?

No. In our view, it’s never too late to get out of a contract that will only cost you more over time. Timeshare Aid has seen real estate companies become more brazen over time. They know you’ll pay what you’re paying now, so they’ll often ask for more. They see you as nothing but a foreign ATM.  

Why hire your team? Should not I just hire a Mexican lawyer in Mexico?

You certainly could. In our experience, the language barrier has proven difficult for both sides of the team. Working with a dually trained lawyer who lives and works in your own country puts you at an advantage. Communication and understanding is how Timeshare Aid has helped our clients get better outcomes.

What is the average cost of getting out of a timeshare?

We are not expensive by design. Our legal practice also fosters trade between Mexico and Canada. We have an interest in helping more Canadians live, work, and play in Mexico.
