Seaside Consultants Group Reviews

At first glance, Seaside Consultants Group has a very appealing website. But as we continued to review the site, a couple of things stood out to our team.

Seaside Consultants Group made it exceptionally easy for us to find the information we were looking for. The first thing we discovered is that the company offers timeshare owners a legal, permanent solution.

In clear, bold letters, the company says, “Timeshare Cancellation Done Right. Real Attorneys. Credit Protection. Real Results.”

As we mentioned before, the most legitimate way to get rid of a timeshare is with the help of a timeshare attorney. Many timeshare exit companies offer different services to help cancel your timeshare. But the best way to cancel a legally binding document is by doing so honestly.

The next significant point we’ll discuss is how the company offers credit protection. This is a rare service. Surprisingly, not every exit company is willing to protect your credit score during the cancellation process. If a timeshare exit company advises you to stop making your timeshare payments but does not offer some guarantee you will be protected, DO NOT stop making your payments! You worked very hard to maintain that credit score! Do not put your credit in jeopardy just because you received some bad advice from a “timeshare exit specialist.”

A timeshare cancellation can be a very lengthy process. Sometimes it can last up to 18 months. Imagine freezing all your payments to resort for a little under 2 years without any credit protection. You will put some harsh derogatory marks on your credit score. And you could prompt the timeshare developer to pursue legal action against you. So, we admire Seaside Consultants Group for offering such a generous service in the timeshare cancellation industry. By ensuring their owners credit scores will be protected all through the process.

Another interesting find that stood out to our team was Seaside Consultants Group offers a “100% Free Timeshare Exit Consultation”. A no-obligation free consultation is an excellent opportunity for the company to assess your case and determine if you qualify for their services. This is a positive sign because it demonstrates how the company is selective on which cases they can take on. If a company makes you feel uncomfortable with pressure tactics that intend to get your credit information, you should run away! Typically, they are greedy scammers who just want your money and have no intention of helping you cancel your timeshare.

As we continued to review the company’s home page, we found a “State Laws” page that provides valuable information on the timeshare laws that exist throughout the United States. The company even has an article on the timeshare laws in Mexico for those who purchased a Mexican Timeshare. Any company willing to provide such valuable knowledge for free demonstrates a positive sign of transparency and reputability.

If that’s not enough, Seaside Consultants Group also has many online testimonials on their page located in a section called “What People Are Saying.” Here are past customers describing their past experiences with the company. Customer feedback is an excellent source of information to learn a little more about how the company operates. Be that as it may, this is also an opportunity to see how they treat their clients. We would have preferred if the company had video testimonials and voice-recorded testimonies for authenticity reasons because anyone can write a testimonial.

As we scrolled over to the “FAQs” page, our team learned the company offers an escrow financial option. Escrow is one of the smartest ways you can cancel your timeshare. A third-party account is brought in to hold on to your money while the exit company works on cancelling your timeshare contract. An escrow financial option also provides owners with peace of mind knowing their money is safe throughout the process. What happens is you hold the timeshare exit company accountable by denying them payment until they have successfully helped you get rid of your timeshare.

Seaside Consultants Group also provides a timeshare exit cost calculator on its website. A cost calculator can be very beneficial by providing timeshare owners with a visual of how much of their money goes down the drain with interest and increasing maintenance fees. Our team always recommends timeshare exit companies that provide information that can help timeshare owners see if their timeshare is worth it.

Seaside Consultants Group reviews state the company is transparent in how they do things. The company has a “Process” page where they break down their timeshare cancelation process in 3 easy steps. Seaside Consultants Group begins its cancellation process by first gathering all the required documentation to learn if you qualify for their cancelation services.

A specialist will work with you on gathering information such as any purchase dates, loan information, mainly basic information from your paperwork. Next is the free consultation where they perform the services we mentioned earlier. Here they break down your entire case to ensure everyone has a clear understanding of the facts and how they will proceed with your timeshare cancellation. Lastly is the execution of the cancelation process. They mention simple exits typically last 6-12 months, and complex exits can last up to 18-24 months. Our team agrees with their estimates of the length of their timeshare cancellations.

Cost & Fees

Seaside Consultants Group Cost & Fees

Seaside Consultants Group costs are not present online. This is normal for the timeshare cancellation industry because fees are determined after a free consultation. As we mentioned earlier, if the exit company tries charging you before reviewing your case, this is a red flag.

After carefully looking at past reviews, we could not determine what the company charges for its services. However, from our experience, a standard range amongst all exit companies can run $3,000-$10,000 depending on your situation. If you have a mortgage balance, then typically, your fee will be higher. As we always say, if the fees vary, then you have a right to negotiate for a better deal. Most exit companies work on commission, and when you battle a little for a lower price, they may come to terms with you just to keep your business. Overall, it doesn’t hurt to try. This can only benefit you.

Ratings

Seaside Consultants Group Ratings

Update as of July 2021: The Seaside Consultants Group BBB page has an “A+” rating with a 5-star rating out of 12 reviews and 2 complaints, all closed within the last three years. The company also has a 5-star rating out of 3 reviews on the Seaside Consultants Group Facebook page and a 4-star rating on Yelp out of 3 reviews.

On Google, they maintain a 4.5/5-star rating out of 20 reviews. However, we could not find Seaside Consultants Group on Trustpilot, and we believe a company should be on all platforms to build legitimacy. Below are reviews from the BBB and Yelp. 

Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts

Overall, we recommend Seaside Consultants Group since they offer an escrow financial option. The company also provides a credit protection service and works directly with a timeshare attorney during the cancelation process.

We always say the most legitimate way to cancel your timeshare contract is by doing so legally. Seaside Consultants Group meets most of the criteria we look for in an exit company, giving them a competitive edge in the cancellation industry. A few things did stand out, for instance, they lack online consumer feedback. This can put the owner in a very vulnerable position since there are only a few testimonials on their success.

Contact our team so we can help you find and determine if a timeshare exit company is reputable. Our team always recommends hiring timeshare exit companies that offer escrow, so you eliminate all up-front fees.
