Part 1041 - Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Installment Loans
"The Payday Lending Rule became effective on January 16, 2018. However,the Rule’s general compliance date is August 19, 2019. Thus, by its terms, the Rule does not require lenders to comply with the Rule’s payment provisions or the related compliance program and record retention requirements until August 19, 2019. The compliance date, however, is currently stayed pursuant to a court order issued in Community Financial Services Association v. CFPB, No. 1:18-cv-00295 (W.D. Tex. Nov. 6, 2018). As a result, lenders have no obligation to comply with the Rule until the court-ordered stay is lifted." (Small entity compliance guide for the rule)
The CFPB has rescinded the mandatory underwriting provisions of the rule effective October 20, 2020, and ratified the remaining provisions. These changes will be posted in our Regulations pages following publication of the rescinding changes.
The CFPB has now petitioned the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas to lift its stay and allow the remaining requirements to go into effect with a reasonable period for getting into compliance.
