It must be known to readers that currently, there are no legally practicing providers of payday loans within the state of North Carolina. However, this means borrowers must look for lenders who have been licensed from other states. As a result, most of the fees, charges and rates that are levied are subject to the rules of the state from which the license was obtained. This is the reason why it is important for borrowers to carefully research through the lender in order to determine whether they are practicing within the boundaries of the law. A rate cap is currently implemented for small loans in North Carolina, set at 36% per year.
Being aware of all the laws and regulations that govern your payday loan is important to remain protected from any unfair activities. Carefully read up on the laws, the maximum finance rates and fees, and all other information such as rollovers, repayment policies and cooling off periods before you take a payday loan. The North Carolina Attorney General regulates all short term loans within North Carolina.
