In section 37-2-701 (6) of a consumer lease, the lease agreement is defined as: 2. Section 37-2-707 states that “except in this part, a consumer lease cannot provide a fee as a result of the tenant`s delay.   A provision contrary to this section is unenforceable. S.C.Code Ann. “consumer lease,” a contract relating to the use of personal property by an individual, primarily for personal, family or domestic purposes, for an initial period of four months or less (whether or not there is an obligation beyond the initial period), which is automatically reconductable with each payment and allows the consumer to become the owner of the property.

  The term does not include a sale of consumer credit within the meaning of S. 37-2-104 or a consumer credit within the meaning of page 37-3-104, or a refinancing or consolidation of the consumer credit or a consumer lease within the meaning of page 37-2-106.

A packing mortgage is an agreement whereby a tenant/buyer makes monthly payments to the seller who agrees to pay his mortgage with that money. This agreement often makes money for the seller when he asks for more rent than their mortgages and they collect the surplus.

These agreements are sometimes broken in South Carolina. The Holiday Residences Act allows for an action for damages and legal fees. Buyers who wish to occupy the property after closing, if there are holiday/correct rentals on time on the property, must be prepared for the property rented to holidaymakers or legal actions if the holiday apartments are not taken into account. (B) Before a sales contract is ratified, the funder must notify the beneficiary in writing all future periods that the property is subject to a holiday apartment.

No later than fourteen consecutive days after the transfer of interest, the lessor must provide the landlord with a written date with the name, address and date of the transfer of interest.
