Greetings. Today is Christmas. Yesterday my two brothers and I were informed by our stepmother that she had deeded her share in a New Orleans timeshare she owns to us as a "Christmas gift." The fees are all paid up including this coming year. However, we have no interest in the timeshare or in the annual financial obligations it entails. I'm assuming the timeshare management firm (Wyndham) has filed a quitclaim deed transferring her "interests" (and obligations!) to us - Merry Christmas! We've already informed her we can't afford it and are uninterested in it. Her response is "too bad, it's already transferred to your names, if you don't want it, just sell it." Selling timeshares like this is a joke (hundreds are listed for $1 on eBay, in much better places, and find no takers). I assume what we now have to do is find a good real estate attorney in New Orleans and contest the quitclaim deed we knew nothing about until we were informed the transfer was "complete." Is this correct? I've read that there's a 2-year statute of limitations in most states for contesting a quitclaim deed. Legally, what are our liabilities to the management company as the grantees of a quitclaim deed on a timeshare we knew nothing about? We signed nothing. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice.
