Answer:

In New Mexico, the developer of the time share project shall make written application to the commission for the registration of the project. The application shall be accompanied by a fee in an amount fixed by the commission, based upon the number of time shares to be offered for sale. The application shall include a description of the project, copies of proposed time share instruments including disclosure statements, sale contracts and deeds, information pertaining to any marketing or managing entity to be employed by the developer for the sale of time shares etc.

Statute in this regard is given below:

N.M. Stat. Ann. § 47-11-11 
Application for registration of time share project; denial of registration; renewal; reinstatement; termination of developer's interest.

A. Prior to the offering in this state of any time share located in this state, the developer of the time share project shall make written application to the commission for the registration of the project. The application shall be accompanied by a fee in an amount fixed by the commission, based upon the number of time shares to be offered for sale, but not to exceed one thousand five hundred dollars ($ 1,500). The application shall include a description of the project, copies of proposed time share instruments including disclosure statements, sale contracts and deeds, information pertaining to any marketing or managing entity to be employed by the developer for the sale of time shares in the time share project or for the management of the project, information regarding any exchange program available to the purchaser, an irrevocable appointment of the commission to receive service of any lawful process in any proceeding against the developer or the developer's salespersons arising under the New Mexico Time Share Act [47-11-1 NMSA 1978] and any other information or documentation required by the commission.
Upon receipt of a properly completed application and fee and upon a determination by the commission that the sale and management of the time shares in the time share project will be directed and conducted by persons of good moral character, the commission shall issue to the developer a certificate of registration authorizing the developer to offer time shares in the project for sale. The commission shall, within fifteen days after receipt of an incomplete application, notify the developer by mail that the commission has found deficiencies, which shall be specified in the notice, and shall, within forty-five days after the receipt of a properly completed application, either issue the certificate of registration or notify the developer by mail of any specific objections to the registration of the project. The certificate shall be prominently displayed in the office of the developer on the site of the project.
The developer shall promptly report to the commission any and all changes in the information required to be submitted for the purpose of the registration. The developer shall also immediately furnish the commission complete information regarding any change in its interest in a registered time share project. In the event a developer disposes of or otherwise terminates its interest in a time share project, the developer shall certify to the commission in writing that its interest in the time share project is terminated and shall return the certificate of registration to the commission for cancellation.

B. In the event the commission finds that there is substantial reason to deny the application for registration as a time share project, the commission shall notify the applicant that such application has been denied and shall afford the applicant an opportunity for a hearing before the commission to show cause why the application should not be denied. The provisions of the Uniform Licensing Act [61-1-1 NMSA 1978] shall apply in all proceedings to deny a certificate of registration.

C. The acceptance by the commission of an application for registration shall not constitute the approval of its contents or waive the authority of the commission to take disciplinary action as provided by the New Mexico Time Share Act [47-11-1 NMSA 1978].
