(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in the business of, act in the capacity of, advertise, or assume to act as a sales agent or managing agent within this state without first obtaining a license to act as a real estate broker if required by Chapter 40 of Title 43.

(b) Prior to the closing of a resale of a time-share interval owned by a person other than the developer of the time-share program, no person may charge or collect any compensation for real estate brokerage services from the person reselling the time-share interval; provided, however, that such person providing real estate brokerage services may charge an advertising fee if:

(1) Such person can document that said advertising fee was paid to a firm which regularly provides advertising services to promote the sale of real property and with which such person providing real estate brokerage services has no personal, familial, or business relationship; and

(2) The party reselling the time-share interval signs an agreement authorizing the advertising fee and such agreement identifies the party to whom the advertising fee will be paid.

If the person offering real estate brokering services on the resale of a time-share interval also offers a guaranteed sale of the interval, such person may not charge or collect any compensation for any purpose prior to the closing of the resale of the time-share interval.
