The Truth in Lending Act explained

What is the “Truth in Lending Act”?

It is Republic Act No. 3765, which is an act requiring the disclosure of finance charges in connection with the extension of credit.

What is the policy behind the Truth in Lending Act?

The declared policy behind the law is to protect the people from lack of awareness of the true cost of credit by assuring full disclosure of such cost, with a view of preventing the uninformed use of credit to the detriment of the national economy.

Who are covered under the Truth in Lending Act?

The law covers any creditor, which is defined as any person engaged in the business of extending credit (including any person who as a regular business practice make loans or sells or rents property or services on a time, credit, or installment basis, either as principal or as agent) who requires as an incident to the extension of credit, the payment of a finance charge.

In that definition, what is meant by “credit”?

It means any loan, mortgage, deed of trust, advance, or discount; any conditional sales contract; any contract to sell, or sale or contract of sale of property or services, either for present or future delivery, under which part or all of the price is payable subsequent to the making of such sale or contract; any rental-purchase contract; any contract or arrangement for the hire, bailment, or leasing of property; any option, demand, lien, pledge, or other claim against, or for the delivery of, property or money; any purchase, or other acquisition of, or any credit upon the security of, any obligation of claim arising out of any of the foregoing; and any transaction or series of transactions having a similar purpose or effect.

In the same definition, what is meant by a “finance charge”?

A finance charge includes interest, fees, service charges, discounts, and such other charges incident to the extension of credit as may be prescribed by the Monetary Board of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas through regulations.

What are the information required to be furnished to the debtor or borrower?

(1) the cash price or delivered price of the property or service to be acquired;
(2) the amounts, if any, to be credited as down payment and/or trade-in;
(3) the difference between the amounts set forth under clauses (1) and (2);
(4) the charges, individually itemized, which are paid or to be paid by such person in connection with the transaction but which are not incident to the extension of credit;
(5) the total amount to be financed;
(6) the finance charge expressed in terms of pesos and centavos; and
(7) the percentage that the finance bears to the total amount to be financed expressed as a simple annual rate on the outstanding unpaid balance of the obligation.

When and how should these information be furnished to the debtor or borrower?

The information enumerated above must be disclosed to the debtor or borrower prior to the consummation of the transaction. The information must be clearly stated in writing.

What is the effect on the obligation in case of violations to the Truth in Lending Act?

The contract or transaction remains valid or enforceable, subject to the penalties discussed below.

What are the penalties in case of violation?

1. Any creditor who violates the law is liable in the amount of P100 or in an amount equal to twice the finance charged required by such creditor in connection with such

transaction, whichever is the greater, except that such liability shall not exceed P2,000 on any credit transaction. The action must be brought within one year from the date of the occurrence of the violation.

2. The creditor is also liable for reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs as determined by the court.

3. Any person who willfully violates any provision of this law or any regulation issued thereunder shall be fined by not less than P1,00 or more than P5,000 or imprisonment of not less than 6 months, nor more than one year or both.

However, no punishment or penalty under this law shall apply to the Philippine Government or any agency or any political subdivision thereof.

    Hi Atty.,

    I would like to ask if a pre-need company lending money to its planholders where their plans waiting for maturity are used as collaterals coevered by the Truth in Lending Act?

    Thank you so much.

      Hi Atty! I would like to ask. How much is the legal interest rate for lending companies? I borrow from Orpadi Lending Company or Lil’s Lending Company the amount of 150,000 thousand pesos. The monthly payment is P8000+ payable in 3yrs which means that the real amount they lent me is actually P298,000. Yung explanation nila kasi all in na raw yun kasi okay lang daw 3k lang yung payment na mabibigay ko monthly until matapos ako sa payment ko. So I thought it must be the interest kaya umabot sa 290k yung 150k. So I tried asking what if I can pay the whole amount (290k) earlier will I be given rebates? They said NO. WTH! Imagine they lend you 150k but in reality 290k pala yung totoong amount. Almost 100% naman yung interest nila. Is what they are doing legal?

    I have been paying an interest of 8percent per month sa nautang ko na worth 300k. Every month po ako nagbabayad ng walang delay. Nakikiusap po ako sa hiniraman ko na kung pwede po babaan yung interest para makabawas ako sa capital na nahiram ko pero ayaw po pumayag. Nadelay po ako this month lang dahil nagkasakit po ako at pilit niyang pinapabayad na ang buong kapital. Humihingi po ako ng terms pero ayaw po niya. Ano po ang karapatan ko? Pumirma po ako sa may nahiram po ako sakanya ngunit wala po kaming interes na nakasulat sa kasulatan.

    Nangutang po kami ng asawa ko sa isang lending company (Doctor Cash). Nagka problema po kami sa pag bayad dahil sa hinold ang sweldo ng asawa ko at na debitan naman ako sa bank account ko (possible compromised). Naniningil po sila sa amin ngayon… nagbabanta, nananakot at nanghaharass. Pati po yung mga character reference namin ay tine text po nila at hinaharass. Pwede po ba nila ito gawin sa amin? May karapatan po ba sila mang banta, manakot at mangharass? Wala po kaming pinirmahan na kahit anong form sa kanila. Through email lang lang naging transactions. Pwede po ba paki email sa akin ang sagot dito sa katanungan ko? Salamat po

      Hi. I owe money from doctor cash but wasn’t able to pay on time. The collections agency have been calling me, harrassing me and just the other day someone called me claiming that he is from NCRPO TAGUIG stating that a bench warrant is issued against me and will coordinate with the PNP in our place to accompany them in our house. I have been informed also that a civil and criminal case was filed against me by doctor cash. Is this really possible? I am willing to pay my debt and i have been trying to contact the lawyer who filed the case so we could arrange payment schedule but to no response. I have also contacted the collections department of doctor cash and spoke with one of their supervisors but he just advised to me to contact the lawyer as my account was already endorsed to the legal dept/lawyer. Please give me advise on this. Does doctor cash really file criminal cases to those who are unable to pay them on time. Also, i need to know if the interest is really 1% per day which makes it 30% in a month. Thank you and i would really appreciate a response.

        Just my two cents, If I were all of you I will not be believing that a bench warrant (a written order issued by a judge authorizing the arrest of a person charged with some contempt, crime, or misdemeanor) was or will be issued. They only let a person owe up to 20k, hindi magsasayang ng resources at panahon ang NCRPO at PNP for such small amount. Under yan ng Small Claims Court. Hindi rin agad yan magrerelease ng kung anong warrant kung wala pa sa fiscal or wala pang kaso makakareceive ka muna ng subpoena. Actually ang una mong marereceive formal request to settle the owed amount from the creditor. Kung wala yan, harassment lang ang ginagawa nila.

        I would still pay what I owe though bilang utang yan.

          Hi DC nakaktawa kasi si doctor cash ung 4k na hiniram mo, nagkaproblem lang dahil naospital yung baby ko and i got laid off so walang wala ako i paid 50k+ sa hospital for a week except pa sa med nun baby, so since wala akong work everytime na my pera ako ive been trying to extend a month 1200 pesos kada extension ng payment due. In three months imagine naka magkano ako? 3600? So 400 nalang balik na hnram ko dba? Nagsisi ako bakt pako nang hiram ke doctor cash nung ng try akk mag extend hndi na ako pna extend eh wala padin akong pera since ng hahanap pa ako work same time bantay sa bata., so imagine 1month late 80/ler day + 700 pesos late pebalties, nung mgbbyad nako ng all in mgkano inabot 10,000+ so nawalan ako nang gana magbayad ksi unfair?? Grabe ung tubo nila even nads writing nila na there is a late payment it is not clear hindi dn sinabe na 80/per day bago irelease ung money so i guess i wont pay that amount kung ano ung babayaran kk un lang dapat. Ksi in the first olace before nla irelease ung pera instead 4,000 bawas na ng 400 pesos so ung nahiram kong 3600 naging 10,000 hndi naman tama yon! Sana gabain sila makarma.

          3. alizeh

            we have the same scenario ask them to to give an email the breakdown ng actual loan mo interest and penalties wala sila maibigay kasi fraud sila. Art. III ng 1987 Constitution that “no person shall be imprisoned for non-payment of debt.” hindi sila dapat bayaran.

          4. alizeh

            Ang violation ng Batas Pambansa Bilang 22 otherwise known as Anti-Bouncing Check ay hindi nagpaparusa sa hindi pagbabayad ng utang. Ang pinaparusahan ng batas na ito ay ang pag-iissue ng tseke na talbog na nakakagulo sa banking industry at nakakaapekto sa banking at financial system ng Pilipinas.

            Kung kaya ay dapat mag-ingat sa pag-issue ng tseke at siguraduhin na meron itong pondo dahil mere bouncing ng check ay violation ng BP22 and good faith is not a defense.

            ————

            Gayunpaman, sa Pilipinas, ang simpleng utang na hindi lalagpas sa P100,000 ay pwede nang singilin sa Court of Small Claims kung saan hindi na kailangan ng abogado under Supreme Court Administrative Matter No. 08-8-7-SC otherwise known as “Rule of procedure for small claims cases”:

            Ang Small Claims Court ay tinatag ng Supreme Court upang maging mabilis at matipid ang paniningil ng utang na hindi lalagpas sa P100,000.00.

            Under S.C. Administrative Matter No. 08-8-7 otherwise known as “Rule of Procedure for Small Claims Cases”, ang isang utang galing sa pagpapaupa, pagpapahiram ng pera, serbisyo na ginawa, bentahan, sanglaan, kapabayaan o kontrata na ang sinisingil ay hindi lalagpas sa P100,000 ay pwedeng isampa sa Metropolitan Trial Court – Court of Small Claims kung saan gagawa lang ng complaint ang naniningil at agad na pasasagutin ang umutang.

            Pagkatapos ng isang hearing ay magdedesisyon na kinabukasan ang korte sa kaso. Nasa Section 17 din ng rules na ito na bawal ang mga lawyer sa ganitong kaso except kung ang lawyer mismo ang nagsampa o sinampahan ng kaso. (Atty. Marlon Valderama, http://www.e-lawyersonline.com)

            Hi I am also in the situation just like you. Although wala pa naman akong warrant na nare-receive ang sabi lang sakin if di ako nag bayad until Mondaymay pupunta daw sa bahay namin. Parang di naman taga Law firm yung nakausap ko di naman ganun makipag usap ang mga taga law firm. Nakakainis lang mas mahigpit pa silang maningil kesa sa mga bangko. Imagine from my 8,000 principal amount ang babayadan ko ngayon is umabot ng 61,000. Do I have to pay that amount parang ang unfair kasi wala man lang silang discount na binibigay. Sobrang gipit na gipit pa din ako ngayon. Ano po kayang gagawin ko?

    Purchased a 2015 Honda Beat Scooter at 74,000.00 pesos Dec 2015 through TRANSFARM FINANCE & LEASING CO.INC. No finance contract was given to me prior to the transaction as required by law. Down payment was 20,000 pesos with monthly payments of 6,004 pesos for 1 year. Paid 10,000 pesos every month until July 2016 at 2.2 %. By my calculator I have spent 90,000 pesos for a 74,000 peso scooter. I have no finance contract, no summary computation, no title and no permanent metal license plate. The scooter is now paid in full. I have no clean title, no nothing but excuses from office in Mandaue. I am holding back July final payment until I can get my correct documentation. Every month the office has ignored my requests, made excuses and now say legal counsel will contact me within the week. I am being told I am the first customer that has asked for a copy of the finance contract and computation summary and the company has had 7 months to provide with the papers and have failed. What is wrong with the way this company conducts business (Truth in Lending Act) and why is this company still in business? The company had 7 months to correct their practice but it is easier to lie, cheat and deceive the consumers over and over again without just consequences or justice for the consumers.

    8% a month is usury. 98% in a year?No wonder lending firms blooms. The poor becomes poorer and the rich becomes richer. These kind of loans are almost impossible to pay back! I just wonder what kind of mind these lagislators posses, or is because they get the lions share? 8% is maybe just the minimum. How about the maximum? Interest earning interest. Wake up lagislators ! You are strangling the neck of the poor mass.
