X-Timeshares and Transfer
X-Timeshares and Transfer is another timeshare exit company that is based out of Irvine, CA. With only 2 years in the industry, X-Timeshares claims it can help get rid of your timeshare, along with your “infinite” maintenance fees that never seem to go away.
When it comes to the timeshare exit industry, the reality is that you have to prepare for the worst. Too many timeshare owners have gotten the short end of the stick when dealing with timeshares. And with an exit company that’s only been in business for about 2 years, they’re going to find out just how difficult it can be to gain a timeshare owner’s trust.
If you’re looking to work with X-Timeshares, there are a few things that each timeshare owner should know before working with them or any timeshare exit company. Initiate a Live Chat or fill out the form on the right to find out how you can protect yourself from potential timeshare exit scams.
X-Timeshares and Transfers Reviews
X-Timeshares and Transfer reviews state the company is a reasonably new timeshare exit company with two years in the industry. We have seen their advertisement often on Facebook and google but not on any other platforms at the moment. This isn’t all that bad, but larger timeshare exit companies usually advertise on a couple of different platforms since they tend to have a larger marketing budget.
As our team looked over X-Timeshare’s website, we saw a few things we disagreed with. The first thing that stood out is the statement X-Timeshares makes, “Most timeshare exits DO NOT need the intervention of a lawyer.”
Trying to cancel your timeshare without a lawyer or attorney can be dangerous if your case is not handled correctly. We always say canceling your timeshare with a timeshare attorney’s assistance is the most legitimate way to cancel your timeshare agreement.
X-Timeshares makes it clear they do not use an attorney during their timeshare cancellation process. Although a lawyer may not always be necessary to cancel your timeshare, we wouldn’t say “most” timeshare exits do not require a lawyer.
As we scrolled down their page, we came across other misleading statements. Here X-Timeshares and Transfer mislead customers to believe that their children will get stuck with their timeshare if not canceled. This isn’t necessarily true; there are multiple options available to timeshare owners to prevent children from inheriting their parents’ timeshare. As long as the children are not added to the timeshare deed before the parent’s death, there are options available that prevent the children from inheriting the timeshare.
Below this section, we found customer feedback from past X-Timeshares customers. There is a chance these reviews can be authentic, but it looks like X-Timeshares uses stock photography images to represent each review. This means the company decided to use the photos they bought versus original pictures from the consumers who wrote the review. Falsifying testimonials is not something we approve of; our team does not agree with X-Timeshare’s actions here.
If you continue to read further, you will see that X-Timeshares has written that 85% of all timeshare buyers regret their purchase. We do agree with this statement because many owners do not even know what they signed up for. Always read through your contract for a rescission period.
If you go through the “Check Eligibility” survey a few times, we learned selecting different answers is a waste of time. Once you reach the end of the assessment, a form asking for your name, phone number, and email address is displayed. What our team means by this is you are not checking your eligibility; you’re just providing your personal information after filling out a survey.
If you decide to submit your information, a disclaimer stating that you are giving X-Timeshares permission to share your information will pop up. The disclaimer also says that you are giving consent to X-Timeshares to share your information with its marketing partners. This isn’t illegal, but we would have liked if the company offered timeshare owners some knowledgeable information.
With numerous timeshares listed for a dollar, we always recommend you understand the various timeshare exit scams that are present in the timeshare cancellation industry. In your situation, your resort may be able to take your timeshare back on a deed back program. Chat with us to learn more.
X-Timeshares and Transfers Ratings
As of February 2021, the X-Timeshares and Transfer BBB page now has about 165 consumer reviews with a 4.87/5 – star rating on the Better Business Bureau. They’ve been an accredited business since 07/31/19 and have had 0 complaints in their years of business. Overall, X Timeshares reviews appear to be mostly positive with 0 complaints, but you will most likely not find too many online reviews because they are relatively a new company.
For example, we would have liked it if the company had a Yelp or Trustpilot presence, but unfortunately, they do not have any reviews on these platforms. Since the company labels itself as a transfer company, they may have a lower success rate with getting owners out of their timeshares.
We do not want you to risk losing thousands of dollars; we recommend you reach out to our team or research the company in detail before signing a contract. Below is an image directly from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) highlighting a positive experience with X Timeshares:
Our Team at MyTER always recommends working with a company that has a strong positive presence in the timeshare exit industry. After carefully reviewing X-Timeshares and Transfer, our team has decided to assess the company with a 3.5/5.0 MyTER Rating. The company’s positive reviews did stand out to our team; however, they do not check most of the boxes on our list. They are new, and do not offer an escrow option.
X-Timeshares and Transfers Cost
X-Timeshares and Transfer are another timeshare exit company that does not post their prices online. This is very common because timeshare exit companies usually need to speak with you so they can learn a little more about your current situation. Knowing how much work and time it will take to cancel your timeshare is mainly how these exit companies calculate their service fees.
On average, our team has seen cancellation cost range from $3000-$10000 dollars depending on your current situation. We have also seen cases go from 6-12 months to cancel your timeshare successfully. Overall our team does agree with X-Timeshares being selective on which cases they take on.
Typically if an exit company accepts every case without assessing the situation, they generally are not legitimate. However, because they are a newer exit company, they lack a strong track record in the cancellation industry, so we do recommend you do your own due diligence.
After carefully assessing X Timeshares and Transfer, our team has concluded the company seems legitimate. We edify companies that prioritize building trust with timeshare owners and who show transparency. We did not agree with some of their statements.
Our team did not see any mention of an escrow payment option on their website, which we always recommend. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare exit company is held accountable because they do not get paid until they have cancelled your timeshare altogether. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
Contact our team so we can help you find and determine if a timeshare exit company is legitimate. We recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer escrow, so you pay no up-front fees. Know your legal right so you can exit your timeshare contract legally. Read over our website and fill out the form on the right or contact us through Live Chat for a free informational consultation.
