The fact is: Timeshare is real estate and when buying a timeshare the buyer should use the services of a timeshare resale broker.

If you are considering buying a timeshare in Hawaii it is important to make sure you are dealing with a timeshare broker licensed in the State of Hawaii, such as Advantage Vacation. By working with a licensed professional you are assured that every transaction is in compliance with Hawaii state laws and that you will receive the appropriate disclosure statements and rescission period. A licensed timeshare broker is required to provide you with disclosure statements and rescission rights for Hawaii timeshare sales while most non-Hawaii brokers don’t offer disclosure statements.

On April 23, 2010 the Commissioner of Finance passed a Bill (SB2921 SD1 HD1) which stated that “all Hawaii real estate closings must be conducted by a Hawaiian licensed corporation”.

The Bill “requires any person operating as an escrow depository for any property located within the State of Hawaii must be a corporation licensed by the Commissioner of Financial Institutions in order to do so”.

It further states that “no person shall act as an escrow depository from an out-of-state location for property located in the State of Hawaii”.

The Act took effect on July 1, 2010.
