Closing On Your Timeshare

Closing on your timeshare is probably a new process for you. Luckily, we have done this hundreds of times, and we’re here to help you every step of the way with timeshare closing services. The most commonly asked question we get is, ‘how long does the timeshare closing process take?’ If you’re in the middle of closing on a timeshare you might be curious about what exactly is taking place. We want to be transparent with you, and let you know you’re not alone in the process.

Timeshare Title Company

Your Fidelity Real Estate Agent can recommend a licensed title company to assist in the final steps  of the closing process with timeshare closing services. The title company is responsible for holding the buyer’s funds in escrow and sending all closing documents to the appropriate parties. They will also record the sale with the appropriate county records offices, notify the resort and/ or HOA, transfer ownership into the new owner’s name and then disperse all funds to appropriate parties.

Once the title company has your file, they will begin the title transfer process. If you have any questions during this stage, you can reach out to your Fidelity Agent and they can contact the title company for you, or you can contact the title company on your own. Your Fidelity Agent is here to help you with any questions you may have and they are a great resource during the entire closing process.
