Seaside Consultants Group
Seaside Consultants Group Review
Seaside Consultants Group is a timeshare exit company based out of Encinitas, California and has been in business since 2014. From first glance, the company has a very appealing website, and after further review, we saw a few things that stood out to our team. The first thing we saw was Seaside Consultants Group offers a free consultation, and also state they provide a legal, permanent solution for a timeshare exit. As we mentioned before the legitimate way to get rid of a timeshare is doing so legally. Many different timeshare exit companies have various options available for timeshare cancellation, but the legitimate way is by using an attorney. Seaside Consultants get a +1 from our team for using attorneys in their timeshare exit process.
Another interesting find that stood out was Seaside Consultants Group offers an escrow option. Escrow can be crucial to individuals who are skeptical about the timeshare exit process, read more about no up-front costs with escrow. Escrow means you will not have to pay the timeshare exit company while your timeshare contract is being canceled and eliminates any up-front fees. Escrow can cost more compared to trusting your timeshare exit company, but if the company has been in business for over 5+ years, and they get the job done, so does it matter? That’s something you will have to decide. Get a free consultation, and be connected to the best timeshare exit company for your situation, fill out the form on the right. There are a lot of scams in the timeshare exit industry, and many timeshare owners have fallen victim, and for that reason, we continuously put an emphasis on getting everything in writing. Protect yourself from all angles, and get our “10 must-ask questions when shopping for a timeshare exit company” with a free consultation.
Seaside Consultants Group is transparent and explained their timeshare exit process. The first step, according to the company, is that they create a strong case file where they document all the misleading and high-pressure sales tactics that were used by your timeshare company. The second step, according to the website, is they gather the necessary information through their specialist and later a senior analyst will review the case. The third step is when the senior analyst will determine if they can take your case on or not, during the consultation, they will discuss multiple options available to you. Step four and five consist of approving your case, and it can take up to 18 months for your contract to be canceled. Step six and seven is when the attorney will contact you and let you know you are officially out of your timeshare contract!
Another interesting find we saw on the website was a ‘State-By-State” timeshare law page that provides information on timeshare laws in your state. Seaside is willing to offer you such knowledge at no obligation, that represents the authenticity of the company. The company also has a ‘testimonials’ page in which there are quite a few testimonials from customers stating they had a phenomenal experience with Seaside Consultants Group. Having multiple reviews of past clients speak about the company in a positive manner and that is another +1 from our team. We would have liked video testimonials and voice recorded testimonies for authenticity reasons because anyone can write a testimonial. Our team will let you be the judge on this.
The company also provides a timeshare exit cost calculator. As we mentioned in our Timeshare Compliance review, having a cost calculator is eye-opening because most timeshare owners don’t realize how much money is going down the drain with interest and increasing fees. We recommend timeshare exit companies that provide information that can help timeshare owners assess if their timeshare is an asset or a liability. Another positive that stood out to us was a 100% success rate. Seaside Consultants Group guarantees they will get you out of your timeshare contract and if they can put this in writing, then that is a +1 from our team. Seaside Consultants Group also has commercials running on radio, tv, and the internet.
A significant positive is the credit protection offered by the Seaside Consultants Group. Most timeshare exit companies do not provide this service for their customers. Credit protection is the process of protecting your credit while the timeshare exit service is being performed. The exit process typically takes anywhere from 3-18 months for most companies, and during the span, you usually stop making payments. Majority of the timeshare companies will put derogatory marks on your credit due to no payment, and credit protection helps prevent those derogatory marks. Below is a detailed image of Seaside Consultants Group’s timeshare exit process:
Seaside Consultants Group Cost & Fees
The cost for Seaside Consultants Group is determined after a free consultation. This is fairly common because if your timeshare company assessed a fee before reviewing your case, then that is a red flag, the timeshare exit company should know about your case and situation. Many timeshare exit companies usually state a cost before they look over your case and wouldn’t you want someone to understand your situation and see if they are qualified to accept your case? Seaside Consultant Group does offer a no up-front escrow option as we mentioned before. After carefully looking at past reviews, the fee is estimated at $4,000-$8000 but can vary based on your contract. If you have a mortgage balance, then your fee will be higher.
Our team always advises haggling the price with any timeshare exit company. Majority of these companies work on commission, and when you haggle the price, they will drop the price to keep your business. It only can benefit you, never hurt you!
