Over the last thirty years, people have disappeared or died without making arrangements for their deeded timeshare property. We have been unsuccessful at reaching the owners of record. Foreclosure is the only way we can get ownership of the units back to Christie Village, but the process is expensive. This plan enables us to receive payment of the maintenance fees for the unit/week. It helps Christie Village and helps those who would want a unit/week of timeshare without the burden of a deed.
