One thing that surprises many consumers is how different title loans can be from state to state. That’s because the federal government places very few regulations of its own on title loans, and instead gives states the latitude to set their own restrictions. Florida has quite a few borrower-friendly laws which apply to title loans Altamonte Springs.
A title loan is a loan that uses your car as the collateral to secure it, making it a secured loan. Since there’s collateral attached, secured loans tend to have significantly lower interest rates than unsecured loans. Because the entire loan is reliant on your car’s value, that’s what determines approval and the loan amount. You won’t need to worry about a bad credit score causing any issues for title loans Altamonte Springs because that doesn’t get checked.
Title loan interest rates have no cap in many states, but Florida does limit the amount that lenders can charge in interest. On loans that are 2,000 dollars or less, the max annual percentage yield (APR) is 30 percent. When the loan is between 2,000 and 3,000 dollars, the max APR is 24 percent. Finally, any loan that is more than 3,000 dollars has a max APR of 18 percent. For comparison’s sake, there are many states where title loan APRs reach 300 percent, so Florida ranks among the best of the best for title loan interest rates. The standard repayment period for a title loan, in both Florida and the majority of the United States, is 30 days. Now, if you find yourself unable to pay back your loan on the due date, you can pay only the interest and start a new 30-day term with the same loan principal and another interest charge.
While not making your loan payment is a default, the lender must allow you 30 days after the due date to make your payment. If you catch up on the payment, they can’t repossess your car. They also must notify you in writing about the possibility of repossession before they actually go through with it. If your car is repossessed, the lender then needs to notify you at least 10 days in advance of your car’s sale with the sale information. They also need to include the amount you owe, which you can pay them to get your car back. Another option is going to the sale of your car and buying it back there. If there’s a deficiency balance after the lender sells your car, they can’t bill you for it. If there’s a surplus balance, they must send it to you.
