Payday lenders in Arizona are reviewing creative methods to remain in business after the June 30, 2010 ban of the payday loan industry.
Payday loan lending businesses are now prohibited from operating in the state and, as a result, many Arizona payday loan lenders are considering converting to car title or auto-title loans and check cashing operations, which may be legal under Arizona law. Payday loan lawyers and compliance experts are researching these business models now.
Our clients and others are weighing the advantages and feasibility of switching to car title or auto title loans in order to continue to serve their customers. Demand for simple, no-hassle, minimum documentation micro-lending products remains huge! Unfortuately, Arizona Regulators fail to realize this demand. So, the Regulators simply outlawed payday loans leaving thousands of Arizonan’s without access to $300 to $1500 loans. Check cashing services have also grown amid tighter state regulations.
The payday loan industry faces increased regulations from many states. Payday loan lenders narrowly escaped the financial regulatory reform bill, which would have required federal oversight of the payday loan industry. Millions of consumers through out the country welcomed this development as their ability to choose the payday loan product to solve short-term financial problems is a high priority.
