Tips from the Florida Attorney General for a timeshare resale:

Before selling your timeshare, have the following in order:

Name, address, and phone number of the resort.

Deed, and the contract or membership agreement which clearly identifies the timeshare you own.

Financing agreement (if you are still paying for the property)—remember you’ll have to pay this off before you can transfer your timeshare to a new owner.

Title insurance information.

Any other information to identify clearly your particular interest or membership.

The exchange company affiliation.

The amount and due date of your maintenance fee, and whether it has been paid for the current year.

The amount of real estate taxes (if billed separately), the due date, and whether they have yet been paid for the current year.

Date your timeshare will next become available for use by a new owner or when a new owner can first make a reservation.

Whether or not your timeshare is a fixed week and/or unit or requires an advance reservation (a floating or flex-time timeshare).

Gather copies of the documents governing the resort owner’s association, if any, the resort’s rules and regulations, reservation rules and any other information that would be helpful to a new owner, such as area attractions.
