Universal Citation: TN Code § 66-32-122 (2019)
  • (a) Unless exempted by § 66-32-126, a developer may not offer or dispose of a time-share interval unless the time-share program is registered with the commission; provided, that a developer may accept a reservation together with a deposit if the deposit is placed in an escrow account with an institution having trust powers and is refundable at any time at the purchaser's option. In all cases, a reservation must require a subsequent affirmative act by the purchaser via a separate instrument to create a binding obligation. A developer may not dispose of or transfer a time-share interval while an order revoking or suspending the registration of the time-share program is in effect.

  • (b) The acquisition agent shall be required to furnish to the commission its principal office address and telephone number and designate its responsible managing employee and shall furnish such additional information as the commission may require.

  • (c) The sales agent shall, in addition to other requirements of law, be required to furnish to the commission its principal office address and telephone number and designate its responsible managing employee and shall furnish such additional information as the commission may require.

  • (d) The managing agent shall be required to furnish to the commission its principal office address and telephone number and designate its responsible managing employee and shall furnish such additional information as the commission may require. Such additional information shall include criminal convictions.

  • (e) An exchange agent, including the developer if it is also the exchange agent, if offering exchange privileges with other time-share interval owners of time-share interval owners who own time-share estates within this state, shall annually file a statement with the commission which must fully and accurately disclose:

    • (1) The identity of the person operating the exchange program and whether that person is an affiliate of the developer;

    • (2) A general description of the procedures to qualify for and effectuate exchanges, including any stated or practiced priorities and restrictions, and the extent to which changes thereof may be made;

    • (3) The expenses, or ranges of expenses, to the time-share interval owners of membership in the exchange program including the expenses, if any, and the person to whom those expenses are payable;

    • (4) Whether and how any of the expenses specified in subdivision (e)(3) may be altered and, if any of them are to be fixed on a case-by-case basis, the manner in which they are to be fixed in each case;

    • (5) With respect to the owners of time-share intervals in the exchange program at each project during a calendar year ending not more than fifteen (15) months before the statement is filed;

    • (6) The percentage of exchanges properly applied for by members or participants in the exchange program that were fulfilled during a calendar year ending not more than fifteen (15) months before the date the statement is filed with the commission, together with a statement of the criteria used to determine whether an exchange was properly applied for and fulfilled; and

    • (7) The number of persons applying for an exchange program as a whole during the calendar year ending not more than fifteen (15) months before the statement is filed with the commission.

  • (f) The developer must provide a copy of the most recent exchange agent's statement filed with the commission to the purchaser in addition to the public offering statement if it is represented to the purchaser that the purchaser is entitled to or required to become a member of the exchange program. The developer is not responsible to the purchaser for any representation made in the exchange agent's statement which is untrue or incorrect.
