Timeshare Complaints in South Carolina

Timeshares are regulated under the Timeshare Act South Carolina section 27-32-130; this code is responsible for the enforcement and compliance of timeshare statutes in the state of South Carolina.

Per the Timeshare Act, the Real Estate Commission is the responsible party for the compliance and enforcement of timeshare statutes. This authority was given to the Real Estate commission by the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, and is subject to the State Administration Procedures Act.

Please note the Real Estate Commission’s authority does not extend to the complaint types listed below:

  • Contract matters
    • Questions regarding management agreements, listing agreements, or sales contracts and leases.
  • Earnest Money or security deposit disputes
  • Disputes over payment by/for licensee for services
  • Landlord/tenant disputes regarding condition of property, eviction or past owed rent
  • Discord with/regarding homeowners’ association management
  • Ethical behavior or poor business practices of licensees
  • Which do not involve a licensed real estate licensee

For these types of complaints an attorney or local magistrate should be contacted.

Have you received a letter of determination stating no evidence of fraud or violations of the South Carolina Timeshare Act were found following a written complaint? Did you fail to obtain meaningful communication or a favorable result following complaints to the Better Business Bureau, The South Carolina Attorney General’s Office, the Mayor of Hilton Head, or the Human Affairs Commission?

Section 27-32-130 of South Carolina’s Timeshare Act states “[t]he provisions of this section do not limit the right of a purchaser or lessee to bring a private action to enforce the provisions of this chapter.” This means an individual is authorized to bring private lawsuits or causes of action against timeshare entities under the authority of the Act.
