1:30 Examining Timeshare Law: Understanding Timeshare Contracts, State Timeshare Laws, Enforceability, and Remedies
Natalie Koss, Ronald D. Wiley


Timeshare ownership in the United States has increased several-fold over the last decade. Timeshare contracts and ownership present unique legal issues for attorneys and their clients. Real estate attorneys, consumer rights attorneys, and estate attorneys have to be aware of the short-term and long-term financial and legal obligations of ownership for their clients. This seminar will examine the laws governing timeshare ownership, including a review of the Virginia Real Estate Time-Share Act, and also consider purchaser rights, the elements of a timeshare purchase agreement, transfers, cancellations, remedies, and enforceability.

2:30 Break
2:40 Landlords, Tenants, and HOAs: Can’t We All Just Get Along? The Interaction Between Rentals and Community Associations
Heather R. Steele


How do renters affect the operation of an HOA?  How can HOAs affect the operation of a rental property?  How can HOAs best handle a situation when renters are not abiding by the Association’s governing documents?  How can landlords handle HOA restrictions on renting?  The areas of landlord-tenant law and community association law often interact.  Find out more about how you can best protect your landlord, tenant, or association clients in situations where all three groups must learn to live with each other!  Reviews concepts from the VRLTA, the POAA, the Condo Act, and general case law and best practices from both the perspective of a landlord and the perspective of a community association.
