What Happens to a Timeshare If the Heirs Do Not Want It?

After the passing of a timeshare owner, the timeshare ownership will need to be determined by looking in the owner's will. This is typically left to one family member. However, if there is no will, the decision will need to be made of who to give it to. If the heir of the deceased has no interest in obtaining the timeshare, an affidavit of disclaimer will need to be completed. The timeshare will now stay in the estate until another heir is interested in taking it, it is sold or it is donated to charity. You do not have to take the timeshare if it is given to you in a will.
