Sham Corporations

Sham Corporations “buy” the timeshare from the timeshare owner. But instead of the timeshare owner receiving money, the timeshare owner pays the Corporation to take over ownership of the timeshare. The sham organization is established only for the purpose of owning timeshares to avoid maintenance fees.

The timeshare is owned by the Corporation. The timeshare resort management company goes after the business entity and is unable to collect any money from an individual. There is no individual to send threatening letters, or make harassing phone calls for collection. The timeshare sits in limbo.

The more creative brokers of these Sham Corporations will contact the resort management company to sell them the timeshare. It may be better from the resort’s point of view to take back ownership and sell to someone else than to have at timeshare sit in limbo without receipt of the maintenance fees.

Many resort management companies will no longer accept transfer of ownership to a business entity such as a Corporation, or Limited Liability Company. They continue to hold the prior individual owner responsible for the maintenance fees.

Timeshare brokers

Timeshare Brokers

The timeshare broker does not work on a contingency but charges an upfront fee. The fee is paid even if a buyer is not found. The timeshare broker may use his or best effort s and have the most honest intentions to sell the timeshare, but if there is no market and no one willing to buy, then the timeshare will not be sold and the money paid upfront is lost. This adds to the ongoing costs to the owner.

Timeshare Use vs Timeshare Estate

Purchasers are granted ownership as either as a “Timeshare Estate” or as a “Timeshare Use.” Timeshare Estate ownerships are granted by deed and are actual real estate ownerships.  Timeshare Use ownerships are granted by contract and the owner has a license or membership interest in the time share resort. Timeshare Use is not an ownership in real estate.

Hawaii Timeshare Trends

Today’s Hawaiian timeshare is not the same as the shady timeshare of yesterday.  The industry is now dominated by big corporations like Hilton, Disney, Hyatt, Starwood, Marriott and Wyndham. These big corporations have standardized the timeshare industry.   

Another factor in growth is Hawaii’s Bureau of Conveyances which maintains accurate records of timeshare units. These records are readily accessible by the public. This accuracy and accessibility of ownership records protects the public and their timeshare investment.


As a result timeshares in Hawaii have grown 23% since the economy collapse in 2008.  In 2008 there were 8,314 timeshare units in Hawaii. Last year in 2011 there were 10,201. Deed and Record does it all to change ownership and title by quit claim deed for the growing number of timeshare owners.
