Washington State vs. Gibbs Deadline is January 1, 2015

If you haven’t already sent your conveyance documents to reclaim your deed(s), the deadline is fast approaching!

TTR has been informed that the proper method to acquire timeshare interests that were transferred to asset-less entities and individuals as part of the Jonathan and Christine Gibbs operations is to submit a set of conveyance documents (typically a deed) to them. You need to provide whatever documents are necessary to record the conveyance documents for their signature. They will not prepare the documents but after verifying the original transfer, they will sign and notarize them. They will not act on any relinquishment requests that are not accompanied by the necessary conveyance documents. So, if you put in a request without conveyance documents, you need to resubmit. Your relinquishment requests and documents should be submitted to:

Erica Hilderbrant
855 Trosper Road SW #108-322
Tumwater, Washington 98512
email: Erica.h@summitmkg.com

NOTE: This address was confirmed by the Washington State Attorney General’s Office on October 6, 2014.  According to the AGO, The P.O. Box, reported in the  Mar/Apr 2014 Timesharing Today publication, has being closed.

TTR recommends that if you have any questions regarding how the conveyance documents should be formatted that you contact Ms. Hilderbrant prior to submission. To expedite verification, we suggest also providing a copy of the deed that was used to transfer the timeshare from the original owner to the asset-less entity or individual. Although this was not clear at the time, you should provide your own resort specific conveyance documents instead of the standardized form previously provided by TTR.

HOA’s that have been dealing with any of the following companies should proceed immediately with reclaiming your lost deeds. You must apply by January 1, 2015.
