The timeshare companies involved argued that complaints should be decided by the S.CReal Estate Commission, not the courts But the state Supreme Court unanimously decided Wednesday that the law clearly states commission oversight should not limit buyers’ rights to file a civil lawsuit. The court considered two complaints against Hilton Head timeshare companies in the opinion One couple sued Bluewater by Spinnaker on Hilton Head in 2015, claiming the company was not registered as required by the S.CVacation Time Sharing Plans Act when they bought their share in a property. Another Hilton Head company, Coral Resorts LLC, is facing lawsuits from multiple buyers claiming violations for, among other things, alleged fraud, negligent misrepresentation and unfair trade practices. Many of the suits in the cases have been stalled for more than five years and are now able to go forward after Wednesday’s opinion, said DuBois and Naert.
