I wonder why Disney as a whole does not allow the take backs. The being responsible for MFs is a good point, but still they likely could resell? I wonder if that's just too much work for them and why you can't just hand it back. Or also maybe worries about financing vs not financing would be there too. Really if someone wants to dump a timeshare though like Disney, they could without much issue. Even if it means taking a massive hit.In practice, yes. If you did not want your DVC time share, I am sure you could put it on the market for say $1, it would enter ROFR, and DVC would take it. However there is nothing saying that HAS to happen. DVC does not HAVE to take back your time share, nor does anybody HAVE to buy it. This happens all to often with other time shares. You find time shares where the developer still has a large inventory to sell, and they do not want your portion back, even for free (because then they would be responsible for the maintenance costs) and the resale market is non-existent. Do some googling around and you will find people offering their timeshares for free. You will also find a number of law firms doing a bang up business getting people out of timeshares that they are stuck with.
Not really - it's all dependent upon who can book for you anyway (outside of regular availability) so that part really isn't much different.Just curious... does anything change for people who rent points thru sites like dvcrequest.com?
