Time share industry report expected this month
The report by the National Consumer Commission (NCC) on the time share industry could be completed before the end of the month, according to its spokesperson Trevor Hattingh.
‘The main processes of the inquiry have been concluded and the panel is currently drafting their report, which needs to be approved by the commissioner. We expect to receive that report before the end of this month. As soon as it is approved, we will communicate the findings and recommendations to the public,’ he reportedly told City Press.
This followed the NCC’s public hearings into the industry.
The commission had been inundated with queries and requests for participation in the hearings, mostly from irate consumers who felt locked into contracts and/or defrauded by the time share industry.
