says it could cost a club 3% to 10% or more of its portfolio to pay off a withdrawing member, depending on how long he or she has been with the club and what percent that member owns.

Such documents should also state when that person would receive his or her money; typically, clubs specify 60 days, giving partners enough time to gather the money.
