Helping Timeshare Owners is one of the many timeshare exit companies that can help you get rid of your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2010 and its headquarters is located in Orlando, FL. The company also has affiliate locations all over the U.S. in states such as Idaho, Missouri, California, Texas, Utah, Washington, Nevada and Oklahoma.
Like most other timeshare exit companies, Helping Timeshare Owners offers a 100% money back guarantee. Their homepage clearly states that if they cannot get you out of your timeshare, you will receive a full refund, and this refund is guaranteed in writing. It’s great that Helping Timeshare Owners claims it will give a full refund, but we here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend working with companies that do not take any up-front fees until the timeshare cancellation is complete. This is the only way to 100% protect yourself from scams.
A company can take your money and promise you the world, but that doesn’t mean the company will follow through with its promises. Think back to when you first purchased your timeshare. Did the salesperson that sold you the timeshare make promises that you later found to be untrue? When you pay up-front, you lose all power and control and are at the mercy of the company you paid. Therefore, we never recommend paying any fees until the timeshare is cancelled.
When reviewing the rest of the website, everything else appears relatively normal. On its /timeshare-cancellation/ page, it is a little odd that the company says you do not need to retain a timeshare cancellation lawyer to cancel your timeshare (as of 7/13/18). Without an attorney, the company doesn’t have any legal muscle available to bully your resort into cancelling your contract. This can sometimes result in a cheaper timeshare exit solution. However, it begs the question, if they’re not using a lawyer, what is it that they’re doing that you couldn’t do yourself?
We like how the company mentions that you are able to cancel the timeshare yourself if you fall within the state’s rescission period, which is usually 3 – 7 days. If you purchased your timeshare within the past week, it’s highly unlikely that you need to hire a company to help you with cancellation. You can easily cancel yourself by following the rescission instructions that should have been provided to you when you purchased the timeshare.
Helping Timeshare Owners Reviews
The Helping Timeshare Owners reviews around the Internet are relatively positive. The company has several positive testimonials on its website, but these can easily be faked. They have an A+ with the BBB with 60 positive reviews and 20 complaints as of 7/13/18. The number of complaints on the BBB are higher than many of the other timeshare exit companies. When reading through these complaints, it appears that many are related to a lack of communication and a demand for a refund. Some complaints mention that Helping Timeshare Owners told them to stop paying their timeshare maintenance fees. This is typically not good (or legal) advice considering that this can result in a negative mark on your credit score. Helping Timeshare Owners does appear to respond to each complaint until it is resolved, which is a good sign.
Helping Timeshare Owners Cost
Like most timeshare exit companies, the Helping Timeshare Owners cost is not displayed on its cost. However, many customers mention the price they were charged on the BBB. By reading through the BBB, we see some customers mention being charged $3,192, $1,826 and $1,862.
Overall, our advice does not change. Never pay an up-front fee to cancel your timeshare. Speak with us on live or submit the contact form on the right side of this page for your free timeshare exit consultation.
