Executive Summary of Delay Final Rule’sAmendments to the 2017 payday lending Rule

On June 6, 2019, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) issued a final rule (Delay Final Rule) delaying the compliance date for the Mandatory Underwriting Provisions of the Bureau’s 2017 rule governing Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Installment Loans (2017 Payday Lending Rule).

The Delay Final Rule also makes certain technical corrections to the 2017 Payday Lending Rule.

This executive summary provides an overview of the Delay Final Rule but is not a substitute for reviewing the Delay Final Rule itself.

Background On October 5, 2017, the Bureau issued the 2017 Payday Lending Rule to establish regulations for payday loans, vehicle title loans, and certain high-cost installment loans.

The 2017 Payday Lending Rule addressed two discrete topics.

First, it contained a set of provisions with respect to the underwriting of certain covered loans and related reporting and recordkeeping requirements. These provisions are referred to herein as the “Mandatory Underwriting Provisions.”

Second, it contained a set of provisions establishing certain requirements and limitations with respect to attempts to withdraw payments from consumers’ checking or other accounts and related recordkeeping requirements. These provisions are referred to herein as the“Payment Provisions.”

The Bureau also provided an unofficial redline and an executive summary.

President Trump, Consumers, The PDL Industry & the CFPB Party to the Beat of New Rules



CFPB Proposed “Payday Loan Ability to Repay Rule” Rescind: Great News

The CFPB issued a positive press release today regarding the payday loan industry.

Consumers, lenders, employees, property owners, tax revenue, deregulation, competition… ALL WINNERS!

Washington, D.C. — The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today is proposing to rescind certain provisions of its 2017 final rule governing “Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Installment Loans.” Specifically, the Bureau is proposing to rescind the rule’s requirements that lenders make certain underwriting determinations before issuing payday, single-payment vehicle title, and longer-term balloon payment loans. The Bureau is preliminarily finding that rescinding this requirement would increase consumer access to credit.

In October 2018, under the leadership of then-Acting Director Mulvaney, the Bureau announced that it would issue Notice of Proposed Rulemakings (NPRMs) to reconsider the rule’s mandatory underwriting requirements and to address the rule’s compliance date. The proposals the Bureau is releasing today fulfill that commitment.

The Bureau’s proposal suggests there was insufficient evidence and legal support for the mandatory underwriting provisions in the 2017 final rule. Additionally, the Bureau is concerned that these provisions would reduce access to credit and competition in states that have determined that it is in their residents’ interests to be able to use such products, subject to state-law limitations. The NPRM proposing to rescind the mandatory underwriting requirement is open to public comment for 90 days.

In a separate notice issued today, the Bureau is also proposing to delay the August 19, 2019 compliance date for the mandatory underwriting provisions of the 2017 final rule to November 19, 2020. The NPRM proposing the delay is open to public comment for 30 days.

Today’s NPRMs do not propose to reconsider the provisions of the 2017 final rule governing payments, including reconsidering the scope of their coverage.  The payment provisions prohibit payday and certain other lenders from making a new attempt to withdraw funds from an account where two consecutive attempts have failed unless consumers consent to further withdrawals. The payment provisions also require such lenders to provide consumers with written notice before making their first attempt to withdraw payment from their accounts and before subsequent attempts that involve different dates, amounts, or payment channels. These provisions are intended to increase consumer protections from harm associated with lenders’ payment practices.

“The Bureau will evaluate the comments, weigh the evidence, and then make its decision,” said Kathy Kraninger, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. “In the meantime, I look forward to working with fellow state and federal regulators to enforce the law against bad actors and encourage robust market competition to improve access, quality, and cost of credit for consumers.”

The CFPB- Like Giving Whiskey & Car Keys to Teenagers – More Good News for Lenders

Yeah, it’s competitive out there! Yep, there is a lot of fraud. FTD [first time defaults] are scaling up.

CAC ‘s are on the increase. Elevate revealed a funded loan costs them $225 each. Enova is close. On the other hand, we have portfolios with <$80 CAC’s and <12% FTPD’s.
