Truth In Lending Act Claims
The Truth in Lending Act gives homeowners in Florida the right to cancel an illegal loan for up to three years after the loan was closed. The primary trigger for Truth in Lending Act claims centers around the initial disclosures that the lender provided to the borrower before the loan was closed. Loans which violate the Truth in Lending Act do not provide proper disclosures when the loan was released. The Truth in Lending Act is designed to promote informed consumer credit by requiring full disclosure of the terms of mortgage.
Despite this federal law, the concepts of transparency are oftentimes disregarded by lenders causing borrowers to fall victim to predatory lending. Sadly, consumers continue to sign documents they do not fully understand even with all the measures of protection offered by the law at present.Fighting for Your Rights Under the Truth In Lending Act
