    I am trying to purchase a TS resale from someone I found locally. The resort has suggested a lawyer for closing, which is $600. I asked LT transfers as I've used them before, and they can't do closing in Canada. Can anyone recommend someone that can do it at a more reasonable cost?

    If the timeshare is deeded you may want to check with Resort Closings, Inc. in Bozeman, Montana. I have never used them myself but I know they have referred Ontarians to Canadian closing options in the past.

    If the timeshare is a lease you can ask the resort to do it or do it yourself.

    Thanks! I got ahold of them, and they said they would do it. On the other hand, they wanted $1050 USD, which is pretty high...

    I appreciate the info though, as this has proven quite tricky.

    If anyone else has an idea I'd appreciate it.

    That's ridiculous. The resort's lawyer is cheaper than that.

    Yep, I declined to go forward for obvious reasons. There was a $650 line item for resort transfer fees when I know for a fact the resort doesnt charge transfer fees. I suspect they would just hire the resorts lawyer and keep the difference.
