Timeshare companies are abundant in South Carolina. While the idea of owning a timeshare can be attractive to those who want to spend a week or two in their favorite vacation spot every year, we know that many timeshare companies over-promise and under-deliver. In some instances, would-be timeshare purchasers are shown a swanky resort but, after purchase, are disappointed to realize they are only able to reserve time in an older facility, if they are able to reserve any time at all. Many timeshare purchasers, after spending tens of thousands of dollars, realize they still do not have enough “points” to reserve accommodations at the timeshare resort without spending even more money. Further, the timeshare company's maintenance fees are due whether you have used the timeshare or not, and often increase without notice. Typically our clients have paid tens of thousands of dollars for their timeshare, are billed thousands of dollars more per year for maintenance fees, have never been able to use the timeshare as they desire, and are left unable to divest themselves of the problematic timeshare.

Preying on those with unwanted timeshares, "timeshare exit" companies often promise that they will extricate the purchaser from their timeshare dilemma.
