North Carolina Real Estate Commission Works to Implement New Law Modernizing State’s Timeshare Laws

The American Resort Development Association prides itself on the strong relationships it maintains with regulatory agencies across the country.

Beginning in the 1980's, ARDA has worked hand in hand with these agencies to create a better regulatory framework for businesses and consumers alike.

Today, we can celebrate another successful partnership that has created a revised timeshare act that businesses and owners can celebrate. Working at the request of the North Carolina Real Estate Commission, ARDA, along with several of its member companies, helped and supported the passage of the North Carolina Timeshare Act.

While we first celebrate the NREC for its vision and willingness to partner with ARDA to help the business community while protecting consumers in the Great State of North Carolina, special thanks are in order for ARDA's Legislative Policy Council and the law firms of BakerHostetler and Greenspoon Marder LLP, and ARDA's own Robert Clements for his work with legislators and regulatory officials to educate on this critical piece of legislation.

The North Carolina Real Estate Commission hailed the signing of a bill to modernize the state's timeshare laws and is working on its implementation.

Timeshare Termination company disappears with customers’ money

With another timeshare exit company having closed without fulfilling its promises to consumers, we want to stress to timeshare owners looking to exit the importance of going to their developer, resort management company or HOA as their first source of information regarding exit options.

The Coalition for Responsible Exit is also a place for owners to safely explore exit options that are supported by timeshare developers and can be accessed by visiting ResponsibleExit.com.

We always urge extreme caution when working with third-party exit companies, as their promises are often too good to be true. To read more, visit https://bit.ly/3Cyyn8R.

Traveling and spending time with family are two big draws that convince people to buy into timeshares. But when those timeshare owners want to get out of the expense and commitment, they usually find themselves stuck. That's why dozens of people paid big money to a company that promised it could leg...

Skipped Taking A Vacation? Why This Is A Major Career Mistake

For those that skipped a vacation in 2020 & now find yourself in need of some quality rest & relaxation, here’s some strategies to consider to ensure you get the most out of your vacation.

We have all been working too hard, with no break. It’s been too isolated, draining, and too restricted. You likely will not even understand how badly you needed a real vacation until you go somewhere new and just relieve all the pressures, stress, and problems around you for a week or so.
