Suing Your Lender For TILA Violations
In 1968, Congress enacted the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) to protect borrowers from unscrupulous lenders. The act is designed to promote the informed use of consumer credit by requiring standardized disclosures, which highlight the terms and cost of the loan. TILA requires that mortgage companies disclose all pertinent terms, costs, and fees associated with the mortgage by using standardized forms.
If a mortgage company does not disclose certain terms and costs of your mortgage using the standardized forms, they will be in direct violation of the Act. These violations may give you the right to:
- Sue for damages caused by the violation
- Rescind (cancel) the mortgage
- Sue for statutory damages
- Recover attorney fees and court costs associated with enforcing your TILA rights
