Westgate Timeshare Cancellation - Is it possible to cancel a Westgate timeshare?
The short answer is yes, it is possible to perform a Westgate timeshare cancellation if the timeshare was purchased recently.
Most states have something called a rescission or cooling off period that forces Westgate to accept cancellation requests. The number of days you have available to rescind your Westgate timeshare contract will vary by the state in which the timeshare was purchased. Some states go by calendar days while others go by business days, so always check your timeshare contract sooner rather than later for the necessary steps to take if you’d like to rescind.
If you are past your rescission period and still want to cancel your timeshare, the best way is to sell it. Fill out our form or call 1-800-640-6886 and we'll explain how.
How Can Your Contract Be Rescinded?
If you’d like to rescind your contract, you’ll want to follow the instructions provided by Westgate when you purchased the timeshare to ensure a 100% successful cancellation. At some point, you’ll need to mail in a physical letter to Westgate stating that you’d like to cancel the timeshare contract in accordance with state law. Westgate is not legally allowed to refuse your request if they receive your letter within the rescission period timeframe specified by the state in which the timeshare was purchased. One way to be certain your letter is received is to send your letter by certified mail and require a signature upon delivery.
If the rescission period has ended, your ability to cancel Westgate timeshare will be significantly more difficult (if not impossible). Westgate has no interest in allowing you to stop paying your maintenance fees. Your maintenance fees provide them with a guaranteed revenue stream. Why would they want to give that up?
When you purchase a timeshare, you’re entering in to a legally binding contract. Like any other contract, it can’t simply be canceled on a whim (unless you’re still in the rescission period). You may have come across one of the many “timeshare exit” or “timeshare relief” companies online claiming otherwise, but be warned. Many of these companies are currently being sued for false statements and other unscrupulous activities.
