Good Government Protections on Payday Loans

On October 5, 2017, the CFPB issued its final rule on Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Installment Loans, 12 C.F.R. pt. 1041. For certain short-term and balloon loans, the rule requires lenders to determine that borrowers are able repay the loans and limits loan refinancing. The rule also limits a lender’s ability to repeatedly cash a check or debit a consumer’s account after two unsuccessful attempts.
