If you own a Florida timeshare in your individual name it will be subject to probate if you pass away. A Florida probate action is required to transfer the Florida timeshare to your heirs or beneficiaries. Since timeshares are considered real property, the probate must be administered by a Florida Court in the county or judicial circuit where the timeshare is located. If you own a Florida timeshare and are not a resident of Florida, an ancillary probate administration can be commenced if a domiciliary estate administration has been commenced in the decedent’s home state.
