Date: 12/10/2016 8:24 AM (PST)

We have been contacted by this US company wanting to buy our deeded property in Mexico. We are trying to check to see if a legit company or scam. If their offer is legit we could make a considerable return. Any ideas, we have hired an attorney

Hi Kevin. Timeshare sales, brokers, and re-seller laws vary by state. In Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Securities Commission regulates Timeshare sales and dealers in Oklahoma. In researching Dean Howard Properties, I could not locate a valid professional license or business registration for the company or locate a representative associated with Dean Howard Properties. I noticed that their website was just created on October 13, 2016 but it was privately registered so there is no company or registrant information available. We suggest you research the business thoroughly, including checking reviews or complaints posted about the business.

If you’re selling a timeshare, be cautious of promises of lots of money quickly and a request for an upfront fee. Those are two key signs of timeshare resale scam — and someone you don’t want to do business with. It is risky to pay anyone before services are rendered. Thoroughly check out the company before agreeing to any services. Interview the company and double check how long they have been in business how many transfers or sales they have completed, the name of the company’s owner, what the complete process for transferring is and all associated fees. Check with your timeshare to see if they have heard of the company you are considering. Some individuals have paid companies for services only to find out that the timeshare developer or company will not recognize the transfer, or sale, as valid. They end up still owning the timeshare.

We have a very informative Blog post that contains tips and what to look out for in a timeshare relief company. You can read the Blog here https://bcablogpost.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/kims-catch-of-the-day-timeshare-.
