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.
