Timeshare Maintenance Fee: Maintenance fees are established and collected by the Homeowners Association or Resort Management Company to maintain the property, pay insurance, utilities, refurbishing and taxes. These fees vary from resort to resort and with the type and size of the unit purchased.  Over time with annual increases these may make the timeshare unviable and a burden to you and your family, at that time you may want to get rid of a timeshare.
