Default Problems with timeshare in Mexico

Ex-brother-in-law had time share at Mexican resort, was in process of reconciling with ex-wife. They were on vacation at resort and he owed money for what ever, she paid the money owed. Once home received paperwork that showed they added her name as co-owner. He died several months later. She continued to pay annual fee for time share. She tried to cancel her name off the account and they refused. She cannot sell it either. Resort is coming up on large assessment that could break her financially. They told her they will come after executor of her will when she dies and executor will be listed as owner. Can a Mexican resort put a lean on an American estate when her name was added illegally? Any recourse with this horrible situation?

Nobody can put a "lien" on anything (except the property securing the loan - which already has one) without first filing a lawsuit and getting a judgment.

No clue without reading all the paperwork associated with the time share and there's no way for me to do that.

I suggest she talk to a lawyer.

I have 2 experiences.
They will never sue you because they are shady - so they wont get any judgment lien EVER but they can try to report you to credit bureaus. Even then you can dispute the matter.

In this regard you should consult a lawyer with all the documents relating to the time share to know that if the resort indeed has legal standing to put a lien on the estate of that lady.
