Universal Citation: SC Code § 27-32-100 (2019)

It is a violation of this chapter for a person who sells or offers to sell an interest in a vacation time sharing plan subject to Section 27-32-20, to fail to provide to the prospective purchaser a separate written public offering statement regarding the vacation time sharing plan and the purchaser's rights and obligations associated with the purchase of an interest in that vacation time sharing plan. The written statement must be received by the purchaser before signing a contract for the sale of a vacation time sharing plan and must include:

(1) the name and address of the seller;

(2) a brief description of the interest being offered in the vacation time sharing plan;

(3) the name of a person with the right to alter, amend, or add to charges to which the purchaser may be subject and the terms and conditions under which those charges may be imposed;

(4) a general description of all furniture, fixtures, and appliances, if known, to be located in the accommodations during the time period purchased;

(5) the nature and duration of each agreement between the person selling the vacation time sharing plans and the person managing the accommodations or other facilities of the time sharing plan;

(6) a description of provisions to protect the purchaser's interest from loss due to foreclosure on an underlying financial obligation of the vacation time sharing plan;

(7) a description of assurances of completion required pursuant to Section 27-32-140;

(8) the date of availability of each amenity of the offered accommodations and facilities if they are not completed at the time of sale of each vacation time sharing plan;

(9) a statement, if applicable, that the salespersons for the vacation time sharing plan represent the seller and not the prospective purchaser;

(10) a statement, substantially similar to the following:

"You should purchase a time sharing interest as a vacation experience and for your personal use and enjoyment. You should not purchase a time sharing interest as an investment or for profit upon its rental or resale.";

(11) in immediate proximity to the space reserved on the disclosure statement for the signature of the purchaser and in bold type a statement as follows:

"A purchaser should not rely upon representations other than those included in the contract and this disclosure statement." However, inclusion of this statement shall not impair the purchaser's right to bring any legal action based upon any cause of action arising from verbal statements;

(12) a space for the signature of the purchaser acknowledging receipt of the disclosure statement and the date of receipt; and

(13) other information the seller or the Real Estate Commission considers necessary for the protection of purchasers.
