Alabama Timeshare Laws
The state of Alabama’s timeshare laws can be found in the Alabama Code at Title 34, Chapter 27 Sections 50-69. The laws that you will find within this section not only inform you of your rights as a timeshare buyer; they are also designed to protect consumers like you from the unethical sales tactics of timeshare sellers that unfortunately happen all too often.
Every timeshare contract in the state of Alabama is required to have:
- The name and address of the seller
- The purchase price as well as any additional fees
- The exact date when the contract was signed by all parties
- A statement which specifically says that “no purchaser should rely upon representations other than those included in the purchase contract”
- A statement which informs you about your right to cancel the contract under Alabama law
Note: In the state of Alabama you have five days to rescind a timeshare purchase contract. If the fifth day is a Sunday, then Monday is considered your fifth day (Ala. Code Title 34, Chapter 27, Section 53). If you have any questions relating to timeshare law, then you should seek the advice of an experienced attorney. We can assist you with finding a reputable attorney or exit company. Contact us at 833-416-8796 to get started.
Frequently Asked Questions from Alabama Timeshare Owners
- Are there laws in Alabama that protect consumers like me from misrepresentation and high-pressure sales tactics that often occur during timeshare sales?
Answer: Yes, Alabama law prohibits timeshare sellers from misrepresenting a number of things, including the location, size, characteristics, or services associated with a timeshare. Timeshare sellers are also prohibited from misrepresenting the buyer’s right to cancel along with any other rights and privileges provided by law. The full list of laws can be found in the Alabama Code.
- What types of financial harm can I face as a timeshare owner if I simply stopped paying my timeshare maintenance fees?
Answer: Multiple types, while it is possible that the ownership of a timeshare can just revert to the timeshare company if you stop paying your maintenance fees, most timeshare agreements allow timeshare companies to come after you in court which would likely result in a money judgement against you. This can damage your credit and can result in garnishment.
- Will my heirs be responsible for my timeshare when I die?
Answer: Yes, as an heir you will most likely be fully responsible for any timeshare that is inherited. Under Alabama law, however, you may be able to renounce ownership of the timeshare within nine months of the transfer of property. (Alabama Code, Title 43, Chapter 8, Section 295)
- Are there any laws pending in the Alabama legislature that can help timeshare owners in the future?
Answer: No, not at this time.
