Why Retain a Timeshare Attorney, When My Rights Are Protected by Regulatory Agencies?


Local, state and federal agencies are charged with being consumer watchdogs; but budgets, manpower and politics may limit their effectiveness. Just as airbag failures and tainted peanut butter impacted many consumers, fraudulent timeshare practices have brought about significant consumer distress. In the case of timeshare owner protection, take a look, for example, at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) website to see their consumer support proclamations.


Essentially, the CFPB holds companies accountable for illegal practices and indicates that their enforcement actions have successfully secured $11.9 billion in relief for over 29 million consumers.  The bureau is part of the Federal Trade Commission and was established as part of the Dodd-Frank Act after the nationwide financial crisis. The bureau’s primary focus is protecting consumers’ interest in dealing with financial products. They have done a commendable job, especially in taking action against predatory timeshare resale scammers who use fraud and deception to take advantage of consumers in financial distress.

But – yes, there’s always a but - the CFPB was structured to be as independent and politically insulated as possible, and the very existence of the bureau and its leadership is in question today. In recent congressional hearings, the acting head of the bureau, Mick Mulvaney, wrangled with CFPB champion Senator Elizabeth Warren. Mulvaney’s disdain for the bureau’s purpose is well known, and his oversight actions have nixed many of the lawsuits in progress.

While the future of this consumer support bureau is very much in question, your specific need for help in rescinding your timeshare contract is clear. You already have endured undue pressure and likely false promises from the salesperson who needed to gain your signature on that timeshare contract.
