1. As discussed in a Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-Treasury report, defining predatory lending can be problematic.This difficulty arises because predatory lending depends on the inability of the borrower to understand the loan terms and the obligations associated with them. For example, some borrowers might be willing to accept a prepayment penalty in exchange for lower interest rates or fees because they do not expect to move in the near future. Or, the borrower might plan to diversify his or her portfolio away from a home and therefore would like an interest-only loan with a balloon payment in 10 years. However, interviews conducted by HUD, the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve Board indicate that some, perhaps many, borrowers using high-cost loans might not have understood that the loan had a prepayment penalty or that it did not amortize through time, leading to a balloon payment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the laws against predatory lending in the us?

• The Truth in Lending Act (TILA), 15 U.S.C. § 1601 et seq ., and • The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), 15 U.S.C. § 1691 et seq. Many states also prohibit predatory lending through state consumer protection statutes and common law. Predatory lending practices contrary to federal and / or state laws may include:

Why do i have low monthly payments with a predatory loan?

You may have low monthly payments because you’re only paying interest on the debt. Another common reason for low payments with predatory loans is that the company will force larger lump-sum payments later on in the loan term. Both scenarios mean inconvenience and more money to you.

Is a subprime mortgage a predatory lender?

It's not always easy to tell. Subprime mortgages, which are offered to borrowers with weak or “subprime” credit ratings, aren’t always considered predatory. The higher interest rate is seen as compensation for subprime lenders, who are taking on more risk by lending to borrowers with a poor credit history.

How do predatory lenders profit from foreclosures?

Since home loans are backed by a borrower’s real property, a predatory lender can profit not only from loan terms stacked in his or her favor, but also from the sale of a foreclosed home, if a borrower defaults.
