The Tennessee Real Estate Commission approved the proposed rules at their regularly scheduled meeting conducted on June 8, 2022. The Notices of Rulemaking Hearing were filed with the Secretary of State on August 18, 2022. This rulemaking hearing will cover two (2) sets of proposed rules. The first set relates to distance education, and the second set relates to amendments to timeshare rescission right disclosures.
First, the proposed rules amend updates for distance education requirements and guidelines. The rule amendments include specifying the regulations related to printed course materials, or asynchronous courses and general additional requirements for licensees to obtain credit for distance education courses. Additionally, new guidelines for students, course providers, and course instructors are created for synchronous distance education courses. A full copy of these rules can be viewed online at:
Secondly, the proposed rule amendments update the disclosure of rescission rights required for every contract for sale of a time-share interval. The amendments clearly number the three (3) methods of cancellation, and include the added third method of notice, e-mail. Lastly, the proposed rule amendments now require time-share intervals to provide the disclosure of rescission rights exactly as written, which will create conspicuous attention, uniformity, and clarity to this language for all prospective consumer buyers.
