F.S. 721.07
721.07 Public offering statement.Prior to offering any timeshare plan, the developer must submit a filed public offering statement to the division for approval as prescribed by s. 721.03, s. 721.55, or this section. Until the division approves such filing, any contract regarding the sale of that timeshare plan is subject to cancellation by the purchaser pursuant to s. 721.10.
(1) The division shall, upon receiving a filed public offering statement from a developer, mail to the developer an acknowledgment of receipt. The failure of the division to send such acknowledgment will not, however, relieve the developer from the duty of complying with this section.
(2)(a) Within 45 days after receipt of a filed public offering statement which is subject only to this part and is submitted in proper form as prescribed by rule, or within 120 days after receipt of a filed public offering statement which is subject to part II and is submitted in proper form as prescribed by rule, the division shall determine whether the proposed filed public offering statement is adequate to meet the requirements of this section and shall notify the developer by mail that the division has either approved the statement or found specified deficiencies in the statement. If the division fails to approve the statement or specify deficiencies in the statement within the period specified in this paragraph, the filing will be deemed approved.
(b) If the developer fails to respond to any cited deficiencies within 20 days after receipt of the division’s deficiency notice, the division may reject the filing. Subsequent to such rejection, a new filing fee pursuant to subsection (4) and a new division initial review period pursuant to paragraph (a) shall apply to any refiling or further review of the rejected filing.
(c) Within 20 days after receipt of the developer’s timely and complete response to any deficiency notice, the division shall notify the developer by mail that the division has either approved the filing, found additional specified deficiencies in it, or determined that any previously specified deficiency has not been corrected. If the division fails to approve or specify additional deficiencies within 20 days after receipt of the developer’s timely and complete response, the filing will be deemed approved.
(d) A developer shall have the authority to deliver to purchasers any purchaser public offering statement that is not yet approved by the division, provided that the following shall apply:
1. At the time the developer delivers an unapproved purchaser public offering statement to a purchaser pursuant to this paragraph, the developer shall deliver a fully completed and executed copy of the purchase contract required by s. 721.06 that contains the following statement in conspicuous type in substantially the following form which shall replace the statements required by s. 721.06(1)(g):

The developer is delivering to you a public offering statement that has been filed with but not yet approved by the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes. Any revisions to the unapproved public offering statement you have received must be delivered to you, but only if the revisions materially alter or modify the offering in a manner adverse to you. After the division approves the public offering statement, you will receive notice of the approval from the developer and the required revisions, if any.

Your statutory right to cancel this transaction without any penalty or obligation expires 10 calendar days after the date you signed your purchase contract or the date on which you receive the last of all documents required to be given to you pursuant to section 721.07(6), Florida Statutes, or 10 calendar days after you receive revisions required to be delivered to you, if any, whichever is later. If you decide to cancel this contract, you must notify the seller in writing of your intent to cancel. Your notice of cancellation shall be effective upon the date sent and shall be sent to   (Name of Seller)   at   (Address of Seller)  . Any attempt to obtain a waiver of your cancellation right is void and of no effect. While you may execute all closing documents in advance, the closing, as evidenced by delivery of the deed or other document, before expiration of your 10-day cancellation period, is prohibited.

2. After receipt of approval from the division and prior to closing, if any revisions made to the documents contained in the purchaser public offering statement materially alter or modify the offering in a manner adverse to a purchaser, the developer shall send the purchaser such revisions, together with a notice containing a statement in conspicuous type in substantially the following form:

The unapproved public offering statement previously delivered to you, together with the enclosed revisions, has been approved by the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes. Accordingly, your cancellation right expires 10 calendar days after you sign your purchase contract or 10 calendar days after you receive these revisions, whichever is later. If you have any questions regarding your cancellation rights, you may contact the division at [insert division’s current address].

3. After receipt of approval from the division and prior to closing, if no revisions have been made to the documents contained in the unapproved purchaser public offering statement, or if such revisions do not materially alter or modify the offering in a manner adverse to a purchaser, the developer shall send the purchaser a notice containing a statement in conspicuous type in substantially the following form:

The unapproved public offering statement previously delivered to you has been approved by the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes. Revisions made to the unapproved public offering statement, if any, are not required to be delivered to you or are not deemed by the developer, in its opinion, to materially alter or modify the offering in a manner that is adverse to you. Accordingly, your cancellation right expired 10 days after you signed your purchase contract. A complete copy of the approved public offering statement is available through the managing entity for inspection as part of the books and records of the plan. If you have any questions regarding your cancellation rights, you may contact the division at [insert division’s current address].

(3)(a)1. Any change to an approved public offering statement filing shall be filed with the division for approval as an amendment prior to becoming effective. The division shall have 20 days after receipt of a proposed amendment to approve or cite deficiencies in the proposed amendment. If the division fails to act within 20 days, the amendment will be deemed approved. If the proposed amendment adds a new component site to an approved multisite timeshare plan, the division’s initial period in which to approve or cite deficiencies is 45 days. If the developer fails to adequately respond to any deficiency notice within 30 days, the division may reject the amendment. Subsequent to such rejection, a new filing fee pursuant to subsection (4) and a new division initial review period pursuant to this paragraph shall apply to any refiling or further review of the rejected amendment.
2. For filings only subject to this part, each approved amendment to the approved purchaser public offering statement, other than an amendment made only for the purpose of the addition of a phase or phases to the timeshare plan in the manner described in the timeshare instrument or any amendment that does not materially alter or modify the offering in a manner that is adverse to a purchaser, shall be delivered to a purchaser no later than 10 days prior to closing. For filings made under part II, each approved amendment to the multisite timeshare plan purchaser public offering statement, other than an amendment made only for the purpose of the addition, substitution, or deletion of a component site pursuant to part II or the addition of a phase or phases to a component site of a multisite timeshare plan in the manner described in the timeshare instrument or any amendment that does not materially alter or modify the offering in a manner that is adverse to a purchaser, shall be delivered to a purchaser no later than 10 days prior to closing.

Amendments made to a timeshare instrument for a component site not located in this state are not required to be delivered to purchasers.
(b) At the time that any amendments required to be delivered to purchasers, as provided in paragraph (a), are delivered to purchasers, the developer shall provide to those purchasers who have not closed a written statement that the purchaser or lessee will have a 10-day voidability period.
