Below is a timeshare rescission letter template that may be used to cancel your timeshare within your cancellation period. However, it may not be sufficient in all cases.


Though timeshare rescission periods are required by law for every timeshare sold in the United States, there is a lot of variation in how long the rescission period is, and how to take advantage of it. Unfortunately, timeshare developers do their best to hide the information you need to cancel your contract during this period.

Castle Law Group offers free consultations regarding rescission periods, as well as services to help you make sure you’ve cancelled during the rescission period. You may need Castle Law Group’s help with your rescission period because:

  • Every state has different rules and laws regarding rescission time periods and letters
  • It can be difficult to find the rescission requirements in your timeshare contract, including what must be in the letter and where to send it
  • Even if you do send your rescission letter in the required time period, the timeshare developer may fail to honor it

 Did you buy a Mexican timeshare? You DO have the right to rescind the contract within 5 days of purchase by PROFECO, the Mexican consumer protection agency. Use the template below, substituting in the correct information, and send the letter by certified mail to the resort as well as via email. If your resort DOES NOT honor your right to rescind, please call us immediately.
