Many people own timeshares in Florida, and there are hundreds of reasons why. Most Florida timeshare owners reside outside of Florida and use their timeshare homes for vacation getaways to popular destinations such as Walt Disney World, EPCOT, the Magic Kingdom, Universal Orlando,


the fabulous beaches of Destin and the gulf coast of Florida and other vacation spots in the Florida Keys, MIami, Marco Island, Amelia Island and dozens of other locations.


Whether you come to Florida for the great weather, unlimited shopping or just to drive a speed boat along the shoreline, timeshares have


made an annual Florida vacation a reality for many families. When the Florida non-resident timeshare owner passes away, the family must decide what to do with the timeshare property.


Some timeshare properties may be valued at many thousands of dollars and to properly transfer ownership, the timeshare property must go through the probate process and should be handled by a Florida probate attorney.

Non-Resident Timeshare Processing

When a Florida non-resident owns a Florida timeshare in his or her individual name and passes away, the timeshare is considered real property and is subject to Florida probate laws and rules, which must be administered by a Florida Court in the county or judicial circuit where the timeshare is located.
