No Attorney Timeshare is a Henderson, Nevada-based timeshare exit service that has been in business since 2018. Their interesting approach to the timeshare cancellation market is a do-it-yourself style kit that has allegedly been crafted by legal experts so you can get yourself out of your timeshare with no need for an attorney. But can a DIY timeshare cancellation kit really do the job that an attorney or an accomplished timeshare exit service can?
No Attorney Timeshare Website
The setup of this website is immediately different from the typical timeshare exit companies we review. It has more of the appearance of an e-commerce website than a law firm or timeshare exit service as they provide a pre-packaged product rather than consultations or legal advice. They claim that their product is supposed to remove the hassle of hiring a timeshare exit team or an attorney that may draw out the process or take extra fees.
They claim empowerment for their timeshare owner is their mission so you don’t feel reliant on companies or firms to help you handle your cancellation. There are multiple templates included in the DIY kit so you can either cancel your financial liability loan, cancel international contracts, or cancel multiple contracts. This all in one kit is intended to be the answer to those who don’t want the hassle of dealing with other people.
The further you scroll you’ll see the original price of the kit was $599 but has recently been sliced to $477.20 due to a recent sale. The kit includes items like pre-written templates for cancellation letters, stop payment letters, credit repair letters, and a service refund contract letter so you can get your money back in full. It also includes free support throughout the entire process so you can consult with one of their representatives with questions, document review, or specific document creations should you need it.
This seems like a hefty promise for something that costs less than $500 even though it was developed by a team of attorneys so that the everyman can understand it but have the legal aid they need to get their cancellation done properly. In their FAQ section you’ll find that all of the documentation has been reviewed and created by attorneys so you allegedly have everything you need to just fill-in and sign before you mail them off to your resort. If everything is truly available in this box it makes it seem like there is no need to ever consult an attorney or timeshare exit company again, which makes us skeptical.
They claim they have been mentioned or recommended by ABC News, CNBC, Daily Mail, New York Post, and more. They also claim their collective team has over twenty-five years of experience in the timeshare exit industry. You’ll find some examples of the actual legal documents you should expect in the kit, so you can have an idea of what will be included.
They claim over 10,000 timeshares have been cancelled in over five countries and they have satisfied customers through all of those cancellations. If you peruse their website a bit further you’ll find sections pertaining to how to get started with the kit and why you should choose them. They have a familiar story about being a couple who purchased a timeshare and that from their experience with timeshare exit companies they figured there must be a better option. They developed the kit to make the whole process easier and more affordable for individuals who don’t want to be hassled by attorneys or timeshare exit representatives.
They have a full section of reviews and testimonials, including video reviews praising their product and they claim to have the endorsement and attention of multiple news and finance outlets. Though putting the logos of these news outlets seems to be a bit of a stretch, we aren’t entirely sure if they were just mentioned as an interesting product to look into. There are no confirmations of their credibility available on their website, and being essentially an attorney in a box doesn’t really make us feel very confident in the ability of the product to do what it says it will.
They have a section of frequently asked questions you can peruse but they are also relatively generic and sort of assert that the DIY is entirely infallible. Someone asked what to do if their documents are rejected by the timeshare resort, and they were told there are documents to overcome that. What happens when that documentation is rejected as well? We aren’t given concrete ideas of what to do should the box fail.
The website is also kitschy and organized to look like a store selling a cheap product rather than a real legal solution to your timeshare troubles. Because you pay upfront for the box, there is no need for escrow payments, but it also reduces the risk of any additional payments being taken out from your card. We don’t fully trust this service but let’s see what former clients think.
No Attorney Timeshare Reviews
There are no reviews available on their Better Business Bureau page and because they provide a product rather than a service they are not accredited. There are two complaints that were recently open against them though, so we assume that despite all the cheerful reviews up on their website there is likely something they left out. The complaints seem to be based around the product not living up to the expectations advertised.
This DIY timeshare exit kit seems to be lacking in some of the most vital aspects, which is the attorney to help assemble and send off the documentation. While they claim anyone will be able to navigate their product without needing additional help, it seems these dissatisfied clients were not able to do so and thought the documents provided were unhelpful. No Attorney Timeshare seems to dispute these claims that the product isn’t useful but they don’t provide much evidence to the contrary.
While it may seem like this is a perfectly good and inexpensive solution to your timeshare exit troubles, it may only end in confusion and your timeshare contract still intact. While they claim to take questions and inquiries, you have to expect that a service that costs under $500 is not going to be an adequate replacement for proper professional or legal advice. Of course not every attorney or timeshare exit company is trustworthy either, but there are certainly ones out there that can provide more to help you than something from a box.
No Attorney Timeshare Cost
This is the only thing that is relatively upfront and easy to understand. Because you’re not working with a service there is no need to set up payment plans or have to deal with changing costs or hidden fees. You pay an upfront price of $477.20 or $599 if you end up getting it after the sale is over and there are no additional fees that will be processed after it is safely at your doorstep.
You’d think this takes the hassle and worry out of the timeshare exit process as you won’t have to be concerned your money will continue to pile up or be taken despite lack of action. This doesn’t live up to the expectation though according to several dissatisfied clients and you have to do most of the work. It is essentially the laziest and cheapest attorney in a box that you feed $500 for less than stellar results.
It isn’t entirely unexpected to assume that a DIY timeshare exit kit won’t do the same job as a qualified and professional attorney or service. While it does help to be able to cut down on costs and learn how to handle things on your own, your resort isn’t going to be incredibly likely to help you out of your contract with some generic paperwork a company threw together. Timeshare scams are tricky enough to navigate alone and without having someone to help navigate your case, it isn’t likely they will let you free with just some documents you paid a fee for.
The idea is nice of course, considering during the pandemic it was hard to meet with attorneys and such to get these things done but you might be better off with a remote attorney or service rather than a DIY kit. We should probably save the do-it-yourself projects for things like baked goods, crafts, and hobbies, instead of legal aid to get you out of a pricey commitment.
What we are saying is that while it may not outrightly be a scam, you shouldn’t waste your money on something that isn’t guaranteed to work. You might essentially spend money to ultimately lose money as you pivot to an actual attorney to help get out of your timeshare. If it doesn’t work, you’re out $500 and there are no money-back guarantees mentioned on the website. Not to mention their ‘How It Works’ asserts that unless you have a valid reason your timeshare won’t be cancelled.
All in all it’s probably best to avoid this product and put your time, money, and energy elsewhere.
