Virginia Real Estate Time-Share Act; developer control period. Provides that in addition to the current developer control termination provisions and to the extent that the purchase contract or timeshare instrument do not expressly provide otherwise, the developer control period shall terminate when the developer is no longer the beneficiary on deeds of trust secured on at least 20 percent of the time-share estates. Under current law, the transfer must occur when the developer has (i) transferred to purchaser's legal or equitable ownership of at least 90 percent of the time-share estates or (ii) completed all of the promised common elements and facilities comprising the time-share estate project, whichever occurs last. The bill includes a second enactment clause stating the intent of the General Assembly that the provisions of this act apply retroactively to all registered time-share projects to the extent that individual purchase contracts do not provide otherwise.
