Timeshare Cancellation Rescission Periods How long do you have to cancel your timeshare after purchase?


Every state in the USA passes its own laws regarding the amount of time you have after buying a timeshare property to return it for a full refund. The process of returning an unwanted timeshare shortly after purchasing is known as a Timeshare Rescission, or rescinding. The timeshare rescission process refers directly to the interval of time that is legally allowed to pass before you can no longer return a timeshare contract, or change your mind about your recent timeshare purchase. The ability to return an unwanted timeshare shortly after purchasing is not something your timeshare salesperson is likely to mention, but it is built into every state’s laws or legal code as a protection for consumers; some people also tend to refer to this time as the “cooling off period” following the purchase. This time period is much like the one(s) offered for many major purchases such as a car and a new home.
