Who regulates the timeshare industry? Why does there seem to be no way out once you make a purchase or upgrade? Which attorneys will handle deeding the "property" back to the corporate owner? We've called several in state where we made purchases to no avail. We've met several owners who want to dispose of unusable timeshares who don't want their heirs burdened with this expense. There are companies who will rid us of this financial burden by paying additional money to them--for thousands of dollars!
