Does a timeshare end when you die?
It depends on what type of timeshare you have. If you have a deeded timeshare, then you can pass it along to your heirs so that they can use it when they travel. If you have a timeshare at a resort with a right of survivorship, which means that when one owner dies, the other owner automatically inherits the remaining days, then yes, your timeshare ends when you die.
Can lawyers get you out of a timeshare?

If you’re stuck in a timeshare, you should always try to negotiate with the company. If you’re unable to get out of it by negotiating, take them to court.
How do you get rid of timeshare maintenance fees?
Timeshare maintenance fees are not easy to get rid of. If you can get in contact with the timeshare company directly, you may be able to negotiate a settlement or refinance your maintenance fees. If you can’t afford to pay your maintenance fees, then you may want to try selling your timeshare on Craigslist or eBay.
What happens if you abandon your timeshare?
Most timeshare companies will allow you to “bank” your vacation days for use in later years. However, they may charge you a fee for this privilege. It’s important to talk with your timeshare company about this before you leave your timeshare. Otherwise, your vacation days will expire and you will lose them forever.
You could also try and resell your timeshare, although it could be a difficult process if you purchased a timeshare as a secondary market resale. You’ll usually have to pay a sales commission or a resale fee. You may also have to pay an annual fee. You can sell a timeshare on the resale market, but this can be difficult and expensive.
What if the cooling off period has expired?
Generally, a cooling-off period refers to an agreement between the buyer and seller, when the buyer purchases goods or services from the seller, that allows the buyer to return the goods or cancel the services within the cooling-off period.
For timeshares, it is still posible to terminate the contract after the cooling-off period. If the contract allows the timeshare owner to terminate the contract at a period of time, make sure to cancel before it ends. You might end up having to pay and go through a tough process after that.
