This page is intended to serve as a guideline to have a concept of how long you have to rescind (canceling a contract with no obligation to either party) a timeshare contract by state. This page does not constitute legal counsel and before proceeding with your case you should always get the advice of a licensed lawyer.
The right to rescind in most instances is non-waivable, meaning it must be included in the contract and it cannot be written out of the contract. It varies from state to state but it typically gives between 3-15 days for you to fully cancel the contract. In most cases the right to cancel must also be stated, highlighted, and clearly communicated in some way in the contract to comply with various state laws. Many states also require certain disclosures including the statutory right of rescission are required to be received at the time of purchase, or soon after.
Some states do not have specific timeshare statutes and instead are governed by real property, consumer protection, or even solicitation laws instead. In these instances, it is important to have an attorney who specializes in timeshare law to be able to proceed with your case.
If it is too late to rescind your contract do not despair because there are other remedies available. We here at the Abrams Firm have been working with clients like yourself attempting to get out of timeshares for over 15 years and are here for you.
