HOW DO I TRANSFER/SELL MY MEMBERSHIP TO SOMEONE ELSE? DO I NEED TO USE AN ESCROW AGENT? WHAT IF I CANNOT FIND MY ORIGINAL DEED?
First, stop looking for the deed! Your membership is a right-to-use membership, not a real-estate interest. You were never given a deed.
To transfer your membership, you and the transferee must complete an RAVC Transfer Document, sign before a notary, and submit the form together with the applicable fee (currently $175 for an immediate family member and $350 for others) to the RAVC Membership Services Department. The transfer is usually completed within two weeks after receipt of a properly executed document. The new member will receive a “Welcome” folio of Club information as well as a new membership certificate.
Use of an escrow agent is not required, however, you may want to use one if you are selling your membership to a stranger. Escrow will ensure that you receive your funds.
