Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Short-term Loan Act to regulate lenders offering short-term loans (defined as deferred presentment loans and title-secured loans). Requires such a lender to notify the borrower that the borrower is entitled to contact the Division of Financial Institutions of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation concerning debt management services and improprieties concerning the loan. Sets forth standards and requirements concerning the dispersal of loan proceeds, the written loan agreement, cancellation of future payment obligations, electronic funds transfer, and posting of charges. Prohibits a lender from engaging in other types of business if it does so for the purpose of violating the Act and prohibits the lender from engaging in any unfair or deceptive acts, practices, or advertising. Authorizes the borrower to recover undisclosed or excessive charges. Preempts all administrative rules of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation concerning short-term loans. Establishes specific standards and requirements for both deferred presentment loans and title-secured loans. Amends the Consumer Installment Loan Act. Provides that the provisions of that Act do not apply to short-term loans. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. In provisions concerning civil liability for deceptive practices, provides that a lender is not entitled to collect damages of treble on an amount owing from a short-term loan. Effective immediately.
