I own a timeshare but the monthly payments have become a burden and I wish to get rid of it. Two years ago, I contacted a real estate company in an effort to sell the timeshare. They collected fees related to valuation of the property etc., but to date it has not been sold. My question is: what happens if I simply stop paying? Can I get into legal, financial/credit problems by doing this. I don't care if I lose what I have already invested, I just don't want to keep paying. Grateful for any informed advice.
