    Worked with TSS and took 2 weeks to get closing documents and that was after I emailed both closing company and broker! Closing company said they were done but she was waiting on broker to give final review and okay to send them out. Broker said he just got them and it would be 2 -3 more days. I told him 2 weeks was really long and not acceptable - I had them the next morning!
    I got the feeling they had been done for a while and just sitting on the brokers desk and or in his email.

    Good luck

    Sent to Disney on 3/26 - so one day short of 3 weeks
    I hope you get through - sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to what gets taken and what gets through so dont lose hope - good luck!! :)

    I was thinking same thing but you never know with Disney. The one that got ROFRed was more valuable than mine considering the banked points.

    It took exactly 10 days to get my docs emailed from the closing company after I passed ROFR. Passed ROFR on a Tuesday and I didn't get closing docs until the following Friday. I was a little.....impatient, to say the least. The worst thing is that the forms, except for the directions/cover letter, were all dated the week before.

    But all went well and I'm now impatiently waiting for my member # so I can book my Jan 2014 trip!

    Wow! I feel so lucky after reading everyone's timeline. I just received my closing documents and we passed ROFR only yesterday. I hope everything else goes quickly.

    Shontell has always provided first class service. I have been really impressed in all my dealings with her.

    Finally the wire amendment was made 2 days ago, and the title company received the fund - but $25 short! Now the title company wants me to send another $25 through. I have already paid for the amendment fees which was due to the mix up (they now claim the account number provided to me in the first time was correct...), which now the title company say it's not their fault and they are not paying.

    I sent the full amount and instructed my bank to deduct my account for any associated commissions and charges, and so I expected that they receive the full amount. Later, my bank told me it's probably the receiving bank or it's appointed intermediary charging some fees but my bank and I will not know if they do that or how much, unless the receiving party informs me first. I have waited for more than 24 hours for the title company and still nothing.

    Anyone from overseas has any insights to share? This saga seems to go on and on, it's overtaken the joy of owning DVC points.

    It's difficult with the 12 hour time diff, but I guess I have to make a call to the title company and find someone higher up to resolve this.

    when I bought my AKV points the receiving bank deducted $40 to pay for the transfer their end. The title company told me about this upfront and i had to add it on to the amount paid. So i paid the UK charges for sending and the USA charges for receiving. Expensive but no way around it when buying points.

    Thanks Minniesgal. That's good to know! The title company did not inform me beforehand.
    I don't really mind the charges, it's the trouble... And to wire another US$25 will probably cost me US$50 in total for bank charges.

    I still cannot believe how the title company is so inexperienced.

    Thanks again.
