Truth in Lending Act
NorthStarAdvance.com‘s policies and practices adhere to the regulations set by Fair Lending laws, such as the Truth in Lending Act. Before a consumer assumes any obligation to initiate the loan process, consumers should demand to be presented, in writing, with the exact rates, fees, rollover charges, and other details of their loan, not to exceed applicable laws, rules, and regulations.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act states that all lenders, including cash advance lenders, must engage in “fair lending,” which is defined as “fair, equitable, and nondiscriminatory access to credit for consumers.” Dodd-Frank also tasks the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with the enforcement of fair lending regulations. Consumers using NorthStarAdvance.com are urged to file a complaint with the agency should any problems arise with their loans.
