Your Quick Guide: Maintenance Fees
Both Marriott Vacation Club® Weeks Owners and Points Owners are responsible for paying annual Maintenance Fees. These fees help care for the property you own and continue the quality you’ve come to expect from your home away from home.
WHAT ARE MAINTENANCE FEES?
Maintenance Fees support the resorts’ operating budgets. This includes the maintenance and management of the properties — everything from housekeeping and staffing at the resorts to pool maintenance, landscaping, snow removal, furniture, appliances, and utilities. Maintenance Fees also often include a replacement reserve fee for capital replacement projects.
HOW ARE MAINTENANCE FEES CALCULATED?
For Weeks Owners, Maintenance Fees are approved by the board of directors of the Owners Association at each resort. Maintenance Fees for Points Owners are based on the timeshare interests owned by the MVC Trust at the resorts. The MVC Trust pays the Maintenance Fees owed for those timeshare interests to each resort’s Owners Association.
WHAT IMPACTS MAINTENANCE FEE COSTS?
Since Maintenance Fees pay for the upkeep of the properties, some costs — for example, utilities and taxes — may be challenging for individual Owners to reduce. Excessive wear and tear on the furnishings and property features can also increase costs. One way to reduce the properties’ costs is by registering for e-Billing, in order to reduce sites’ postage use.
