The Truth in Lending Act requires that card issuers identify on periodic statements credit transactions occurring during the statement period, and the Board by regulation authorizes card issuers to identify credit extensions by the date of the transaction or the date the transaction is posted to the consumer's account.
Under the Truth in Lending Act, civil liability and statutory penalties of up to $1,000 per loan (and up to $500,000 in class actions) apply to certain violations of the disclosure require ments.
COMMENTS ON PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE TRUTH IN LENDING ACT
We offer the following comments on the proposed amendments to the Truth in Lending Act.
The bill would amend section 128(b) of the Truth in Lending Act to require good faith estimates of disclosures about the cost of credit (such as the annual percentage rate (APR), finance charge, and payment schedule) whenever a home purchase mortgage that is subject to RESPA is satisfied and replaced with another consumer credit transaction.
Although under current Truth in Lending law consumers are not entitled to get estimated disclosures in refinancings of home loans within three days after application, they do get more precise credit disclosures before consummation.
However, in light of the relatively few complaints we have seen about consumer problems with refinancings, we are inclined to think that the existing disclosures and other protections that consumers have under the Truth in Lending Act are probably adequate.
With some exceptions (such as home equity loan restrictions and maximum APRs on adjustable rate mortgages), the Truth in Lending Act generally does not involve the substantive regulation of credit terms, such as the rate of interest that can be imposed or the types of charges that are permissible.
The bill would also amend the Truth in Lending Act to ensure that commitments relating to finance charges in mortgage loans will be honored if the loan is closed within a specified time.
Proposed section 128(e)(1) would further transform the disclosure orientation of the Truth in Lending Act by making breaches of credit contracts a violation of the act.
