westgate resorts Bransom woods have a deed westgates states I don't qualify for owner benefits bransom Missouri
I am an owner at West Gate Smokey mountain I have owned one bedroom for over 10yrs no problems at all with this resort. My husband I have been on many timeshare tours and reviews with this resort and each time they tell us that you can always sell your resort or buy , trade and transfer over deed to family.
so one day we purchased a 2bedroom from someone who paid 15,000.00 and could not use it anymore and wanted to get out of it. We purchased this from ebay. We paid only the fees it cost to transfer deed.
We have used Bransom Woods for week few years ago, no problem at all during that time.
Then in 2013 this year I called to transfer my 2bedroom week to Orlando ( as i am used to doing this with my smokey mountains for 150.fee) Westgate tells me I do not have the same privilages as owner due to I did not purchase my deed direct from them and I will have to pay 450.00 to transfer my week to orlando. I argued and requested a supervisor and she stated that I did not purchase from them so i dont get the same fees or treatment as owner. Now I pay my hoa fees and pay them on time for this resort as I do my smokey mountain resorts. And as many of you know , the sells man tells you "Oh you can sell you timeshare anytime , or you can hand it over to you kids and so on. As you all my know we have learnd all the lies that timeshares tell you. So we know not to upgrade or give them any more money what so ever.
I got the supervisor to lower my transfer fee to 350.00 to move my week to Orlando , which should be the normal 150.00 fee. So I want to shout OUT!! that NO you cannot sell it and get the same treatmemt. They are upset that I did not pay a 20,000.00 to them for this resort and that should not matter. I pay HOA fees and I come and stay on your property which generates money for on site properties , such as using stores, restaurants and so on.
I don't think this is fair and I would like to see how can we get a law suit started on this company for false advertisments false statements . How can we get something change in this industry to protect the comsumers.
