In a judgement for divorce and dissolution of marriage, one spouse is awarded a timeshare.

Tip Sheet by Deed and Record explains how to change ownership of timeshares located in California, Hawaii, Nevada and Florida.

All four states require change in ownership by deed. Each State has designated a sub-state entity to keep track of the deeds. These State entities are the final authority on who owns each and every real property located in the State.

In the Western States, including California and Nevada, this task is assigned to the “county
recorder.” The recorder is responsible for all real property located in its county. In Florida, the courthouse of each county is responsible for real property located in that county. Hawaii is the only State that tracks all owners of real property throughout the State by one entity known as the Bureau of Conveyances.

Change of owners is effective upon the submission to and acceptance by the State entity of a deed that is copied, indexed and made part of the official record. A copy of the recorded deed must be forwarded to the timeshare company to update their own record of owners.
