New Rules for Texas Credit Access Businesses

by The CAB Man Texas on October 23, 2015

The 2015 Texas legislative session passed a “Clean Up Bill”, which authorized the OCCC to review, repeal, and replace rules regulating CAB’s.  Those new changes were proposed in September for pre- comment and voted for approval by the Texas Finance Commission Board to be published in the Texas Register on October 16, 2015 (last Friday) at the Texas Finance Commission meeting in Austin, Texas.

We have counted approximately 144 new changes to TAC 7, Chapter 83, Subchapter B.  This is the first time in 4 years that any new rules for payday loan or auto title loan businesses known as “CABs” have been put into place.  It is time to get educated on changes and make the necessary modifications to your documents, processes, and other operating methods.

The changes affect a broad range areas from; Definitions; Licensing Fees, Notice of Delinquency of Annual Assessment, Denial, Suspension, Revocation based on Criminal History, Examinations, Files & Records, Separation Between Third Party Lender and CABs, and Case Hearing Procedures.

CAB Consulting has thoroughly reviewed the changes and put together a compliance plan to ensure CABs, their software providers, and third party lenders are compliant moving forward into 2016.   We are told the first round of changes are slated to be made effective in late December of this year or early January 2016.
