LAST UPDATED: July 20th, 2022

Located in Encinitas, California, Seaside Consultants Group offers timeshare relief and contract cancellation solutions. Seaside can help cancel your timeshare in cases where misrepresentations and high-pressure sales tactics common to the industry were used to initiate your investment. What most people don't know is that timeshare providers cannot hold people liable for a contract based on misrepresentations.

If purchasing a timeshare property or joining a timeshare program doesn't match what you were expecting due to fraudulent marketing or sales practices or you find yourself facing years of ongoing fees that you weren't fully informed about, Seaside Consultants can help look into your situation. Its program includes a dedicated account analyst, credit protection, and positive client satisfaction. 

Keep reading for pros and cons of working with Seaside Consultants Group to help with your timeshare exit.

The Good

  • Free Consultation Offer
  • Clearly Lays Out the Process
  • Aims to Protect Client Credit
  • State-by-State Laws
  • Consulting Services Disclaimer

Free Consultation Offer

Seaside offers a free consultation to review your specific circumstances and determine if its professionals can help you cancel your timeshare. 

Clearly Lays Out the Process

Getting started with Seaside Consultants is relatively simple; the first step of the process is talking to a specialist and building a case file. Clients will need to provide information such as purchase dates and, more importantly, any misleading or high-pressure sales tactics the seller used. Once the company has the necessary documentation, clients will speak with a senior analyst to explore further options.

If the senior analyst decides the provided information is enough to make a case, the analyst will discuss what options there are and what the cost to cancel the contract will be. Clients who approve will be sent a service agreement by their case manager.

After that, Seaside Consultants will begin working diligently to cancel the contract. The company states that most cases are typically achieved in 6 to 12 months; however, Seaside has some outlying cases that took up to 18 months. 

Once the case is resolved and the client is relieved of all future liabilities of the timeshare contract — mortgage, assessments, and maintenance fees — clients can enjoy the rest of their life timeshare free.

Aims to Protect Client Credit

One thing that sets Seaside Consultants apart from its competitors is the company's dedication to helping clients protect their credit score. Timeshare owners who are struggling to make their loan or maintenance fees might be reported by the resort and get a 30, 60, or 90-day late payment notice — which will negatively affect their credit score.

Some resorts will even categorize timeshare loans as a mortgage. If the timeshare owner stops making payments on the loan, it could be reported to credit bureaus as a mortgage foreclosure. Generally, a foreclosure can drop a FICO credit score by at least 100 points, if not more. A foreclosure won't completely ruin a credit score, but it can make it challenging to take out loans in the future. So the fact that Seaside Consultants makes it a priority to protect its clients’ credit score is a huge plus.

State-by-State Laws

Unfortunately, every state has different timeshare laws — making it extremely confusing for many owners as they were not made aware of these laws when they purchased their timeshare.

To combat this, Seaside Consultants provides an entire page on its website devoted to helping timeshare owners learn the laws of each state. Whether a client needs help canceling a timeshare in Nevada, New York, or Vermont, Seaside Consultants has ample experience with timeshare cancellation in each state.

Consulting Services Disclaimer

At the bottom of the Frequently Asked Questions page on the website, Seaside Consultants explains that the company is not a law firm. Seaside Consultants gathers data from its clients and works with its team of professionals to build a case against the developer. We appreciate that Seaside Consultants is transparent about this.

The Bad

  • Little Information on Escrow

Little Information on Escrow

Based on the website, Seaside Consultants offers an escrow payment option. This is fantastic for clients as it means the timeshare exit company must complete the cancellation to get paid — giving them the incentive to finalize a case. However, there is little information on the website about the escrow process, its financial purpose, and how it affects clients. It would be beneficial for Seaside Consultants to include more educational information as people are often unaware of what an escrow is and how it can help them.

The Bottom Line

While Seaside Consultants works hard to help timeshare owners get out of a financially draining contract, the company does it in a way that protects its clients’ credit — very few other companies make this promise. Seaside Consultants is also extremely transparent about its process and how long a case could take. For those interested in learning more about Seaside Consultant's services and costs, consumers are encouraged to call the company directly.

Seaside got me out of my timeshare. They stuck by my side every step of the way. Everyone I communicate with was professional, caring and extremely friendly. Their main focus was getting me out of my timeshare ASAP and they delivered what they said they would do. I highly recommend Seaside Consultants if you have a timeshare you need to get rid of it.

I highly recommend Seaside consultants. They got me out of my Welk timeshare. Lengthy process but well worth it because I had my timeshare for five years and I was never able to use it. I am so grateful and relieved for this company. They are true Rockstars.

Seaside Consultants was very thorough with their examination of my case right from the start. After an extensive questionnaire, I was assigned a Consultant that would handle my case. Seaside Consultants fought on my behalf to dispute the contract and canceled my timeshare contract without any costly trials. I am very happy with the results. I would recommend Seaside Consultants if you have a timeshare you feel is taking your income with Monthly Fees and skyrocketing Annual Maintenance cost. It didn't happen over night, but Seaside Consultants was in my corner all the way. I am free and clear of that seemly never ending debt.

I am extremely relieved to have called Seaside Consultants. Several acquaintances had referred me to them. My consultant, Ben , took such unhurried time with me , listening to my concerns about my recent timeshare purchasing experience . He was helpful in explaining the facts and realities that are related to becoming a timeshare owner to me. I was able to resolve my issue successfully with the guidance and knowledgeable consultants of this firm. Thank you Ben !!!

Our Sr. Analyst Mr. C was phenomenal. We had called and spoken to two other "top-rated" timeshare exit companies and they did not compare to the quality of service and ease that Mr. C and his colleagues provided. Mr. C broke down everything step by step and was extremely transparent about everything. He was extremely patient, accessible, friendly, and gave us peace of mind. We look forward to being free and clear from our nightmare of a timeshare experience within a year.

When I was first contacted by Ken @ Seaside Consultants I was immediately taken in by his kindness and concern. He listened to my concerns, asked me some questions and then gave me a few days for me and my husband to talk it all out. In the meantime, I read many reviews on this company. I was very surprised when I saw such positive statements and good ratings. We feel we have made an excellent choice in letting Seaside Consultants represent us.

Getting free consultation was quick and easy. I was contacted the next day after filling out the online consultation request form. I was able to get my questions answered in the initial interview with Ken C, and felt at ease going into the follow-up interview. I'd highly recommend Seaside Consultants if you are looking to end your timeshare and don't know where to start.

This is the first company that actually did what they said they would do! We had been trying to get rid of the awful burden of a timeshare for years! All you have to do is call. They ask you some questions & determine if they can help. You then provide them with the timeshare information & they start working. They take payment over the time it takes to handle the claim & then it's done. They took care of everything! We would highly recommend Seaside Consultants to rid you of your timeshare burden!

It’s been over 3 yrs since I paid them way too much $$, complied with all docs, etc to help me get out of Timeshare & protect my credit with 0 results! I never hear from them or attorneys! I feel like I’ve been scammed twice…should have filed bankruptcy…still get harassed by TS …credit went from 820+ to 670 solely due to TS…you would think Seaside would at least call or touch base once in awhile but no! I’m physically I’ll from the stress of it all! Shelley Wray

Been dealing with them for a while only to always be told it's still pending. It's been over a year if not, a year and a half. At first, they were on top of things but now when we try to reach out to them, leave a message for them to call, no one calls back and leaves a message. The level of professionalism is slowly decreasing and discouraging. It would be nice if someone would reach out and give more than just three words.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Prior to the COVIC-19 pandemic, most cases were resolved within 18 months. The pandemic, unfortunately has slowed so many processes down to a crawl. These are factors which are unfortunately outside of our control. What is within our control is the frequency of our contact with our clients. We have recently increased the size of our Client Services department in order to respond to consumers faster and more frequently.
