Past Due Dues on a Time Share
by Mike Huss
I cosigned on a Time share with a buddy of mine back in the 90's. He didn't have the $1000 at the time so I said I would cosign and pay it. Within 4 months he paid me back and I signed a quit claim deed with him and he said he would take care of everything for filing that paper work. Last year, New Owners bought the Time share and I started getting collection notices from them saying I owed all this back charges. I have never spent one day at this time share. I didn't even know he hadn't done the paper work until they sent my a letter almost 20 years later. They say I owe a total of $7,615.75 now what do I do? I live in Washington State, the property is about 4 hrs. away from where I live. I called them once and told them to find my buddy but they said they tried and couldn't so now it's up to me to pay.
