There are lawyer services that will get you out of it.

I’ve never understood the draw to these things. On its face it looks like a really bad idea.

They charge an average of 200 a week for maintenance. That’s crazy and it can go up to whatever they want. Then you need to pay a mortgage on it.

A 4 star hotel costs less and you can go anyplace.

Thanks. I tried deed back, selling or give away, no luck. Seem stuck, maint. fee pay I stopped at 2020 pandemic year. Need to see attorney. Why can “forever” deed even be legal to start with , real land might be forever and to heirs, but this is not land. Jim
