Westin Ownership Transfer Process
Once both Seller and Buyer have agreed to the terms of the sale and signed the contract, the file is sent to the closing company to begin the transfer process. Starwood Vacation Network has the Right of First Refusal (ROFR) for the following 4 resorts:
For these 4 resorts, the closing company will first submit a request for waiver of ROFR. For all other SVN resorts, or upon receipt of this waiver, the deed conveying ownership from seller to buyer will be sent to the appropriate county for recording. The time it takes for the deed to be recorded varies depending on the county and whether or not online filings are available. Once the closing company receives the recorded deed, it is forwarded to Starwood for processing. The following 6 resorts require a $25 resort transfer fee, typically paid by the buyer:
Sheraton Desert Oasis
Sheraton Mountain Vista
The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas
The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas
The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North
Once Starwood’s Title Department receives the recorded deed and transfer fee (if applicable), it takes an average of 7-10 business days for them to process and finalize the transfer of ownership.
