- Collect all the monies owing including a deposit representing 50% of the rental fee and the remaining balance 150 days before the rental period. Make all arrangements with the Resort and provide the tenant with a letter of introduction confirming arrangements.

Buying a unit
- The “RIOTG” is able to act on your behalf and handle buy transactions. This way, your privacy is assured and protected from what can be unpleasant “negotiations”. We charge no fee to handle the purchase but the Resort charges a $285 Documentation Registration Fee for a purchase – which is payable by the new owner. We will do the following for you:
- Present your offer to the owner and negotiate a satisfactory resolution to the purchase price.
- Prepare and have signed a suitable buy/sell agreement.
- Obtain all necessary documents to complete the Purchase
The Royal Islander Owners Timeshare Group will be acting as the escrow agent in this transaction. You can be assured no funds will be paid to the seller until you are in receipt of the ownership documentation, which correctly records your ownership interest. The process takes generally 90 days after all documentation has been received.
Selling your Unit.
- We will place your Advertisement on our Internet site once the advertising fee has been paid
- Negotiate with and find you a suitable purchaser at a pre agreed Sale Price.
- Prepare and have signed a suitable sell agreement.
- Prepare and secure all necessary documents to complete the Transfer.
- Collect full payment from the purchaser which will be held in escrow until the purchaser is in receipt of the ownership documentation, which correctly records their ownership interest
- Upon finalization of the transfer by the Resort all proceeds payable in US $ will be sent to you the Owner. less our selling and closing commissions of 15% (Minimum fee is $400) of the sale price.
Please be cautious of the many” timeshare selling companies promising to sell your unit but who want nothing other than an up front fee i.e. $595 to list your week and then do nothing
It’s just a big scam
