Massachusetts Timeshare Laws
Please be advised that you should not act upon any of this information without seeking proper legal counsel from an attorney experienced in timeshare law.

Timeshare laws in Massachusetts are ruled by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Part II, Title I, Chapter 1838. Massachusetts timeshare law mainly sanctions the timeshare contracts and duties of the developer. There are few protections for timeshare buyers and owners in regards to advertising and resale fraud. If you have experienced a timeshare resale scam in Massachusetts, it is suggested that you speak with a timeshare lawyer to protect your rights.
Chapter 1838, section 5 states that if the court finds any contracts or a clause of a contract unconscionable (unreasonable) the court may refuse to apply the contract, may allow the contract to continue without the unconscionable clause, or may limit the extent of the clause.
Timeshare Foreclosure in Massachusetts
Chapter 1838, Section 29A and 29B declares that if a purchaser becomes delinquent on the mortgage or assessment payments, they will be subject to foreclosure. Under this timeshare law, the managing entity will notify the purchaser in writing of the forfeiture and the purchaser then has 90 days to pay the lien or dispute the notification. If you have past due maintenance fees or a special assessment that is still in debt to the resort, please speak with a timeshare attorney. There is a limited time for you to take action and resolve this dispute.
Cancellation of Contract
Section 41 states that a purchaser must elect to cancel a timeshare purchase contract within three business days after signing the contract and receiving the public offering statement and all disclosures required in the case of resales. The purchaser may cancel the contract by hand-delivering, mailing by registered mail, delivering by telegram or by courier service with guaranteed next day delivery, to the seller or his agent for service of process.
