The Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee proposed this interest rate cap in a hearing and expressed the intent behind the idea. This bill aims to help American consumers avoid paying excessive and unreasonable amounts on small loans.

What would this interest rate cap look like? Would this law reduce the debt of poor communities or remove a lifeline by bankrupting lenders?

This article explains how the federal interest rate cap of 36% on consumer loans will affect short-term loans.

Short term loans for a small amount

The lenders that will be most affected by this bill will be the short-term lenders, such as payday lenders and title lenders.

  • Payday lenders let borrowers borrow against their wages. The loan must be repaid after two weeks or you can roll it over. All you need to be approved is a valid ID, a bank account, and a regular paycheck.
  • Securities lenders allows you to borrow against your vehicle. If you can’t repay your loan, they have the right to repossess your car. All you need to get approved is valid ID and a moving vehicle in your name.

Both types of loans are expensive – usually triple-digit APR rates – because almost everybody is approved.

These types of lenders not manage your credit, making it the only option for getting cash in an emergency or if you can’t get approval from the bank.

Interest rates and fees for consumer loans

Not all states allow payday lending or securities lending. But of those who do, only 18 states have a 36% interest rate cap in place for payday loans and securities lending.

Without federal interest rate caps, some state lenders charge as much as APR 600%. Because taking a loan is so easy – all you need is a valid ID, bank account, and proof of income – just about anyone can fall victim to unfair and unreasonable loans .

Consumer loans that exceed 36% interest are expensive and can be an extreme challenge to repay. About 25% of payday loans end up being borrowed at least nine times, so for some people the interest and fees end up getting expensive. Following than the amount borrowed.

Reintroduce the invoice

This idea of ​​a federal interest rate cap was introduced in 2019. The bill will soon be reintroduced. The purpose of this bill is to help American consumers avoid paying excessive and unreasonable amounts on small loans.

Failure to comply with the 36% interest rate ceiling could result in the nullity of the loan once this law is adopted. This means that the lender will not be able to collect or keep the principal, fees, interest or other charges on the loan.

If this legislation passes, all charges on a credit transaction, including all charges, must be included in the APR. Otherwise, lenders could charge excessive fees as a loophole.

Fortunately, the big banks have taken steps to provide reasonable and responsible lending to American consumers.

The role of the bank

The big banks have recently introduced low-cost lending programs, which have put a strain on payday lenders and securities lenders.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/28/big-bank-ceos-open-to-federal-36percent-interest-rate-cap-on-consumer-loans.html

If small lenders go out of business – which some lenders claim is possible if a federal interest rate cap kicks in – the banks will have an advantage.

As of May 2020, the Federal Reserve has allowed banks to offer low-value loans, provided they adhere to lending principles. This ensures that the loans are fair and responsible.

Why 36%?

Proponents of the 36% interest rate cap believe 36% is a fair and reasonable amount to charge on a small loan. This number is not arbitrary. It has been asserted as an appropriate amount to charge so that the majority of borrowers can repay it.

Simply put, an interest rate of 36% is the upper limit for durable loans. This number ensures that lenders do not take advantage of borrowers while still being able to stay in business.

What Would the Federal Interest Rate Cap Mean for Payday Lenders?

If this legislation is passed, lenders will have to work quickly to adapt to this new regulation. They will first need to decide if they can stay in business while charging a maximum interest of 36%. Otherwise, they will have to make serious changes to their budgets.

Payday lenders will no longer be able to keep consumers in a loan – they do this by offering to renew the loan or take out another loan – because it will be much easier for the consumer to repay the loan in the first place.

More and more states are imposing the 36% cap

In recent months, many states have placed limits on interest rates on payday and other short-term loans to protect consumers from debt traps. Interest rates on short-term loans drop from 400% to 36% across the country.

Other states have proposed the bill but are awaiting the governor’s signature. States like Ohio have introduced other limits and regulations that have helped reduce exorbitant interest rates on payday loans.

Even though many states are moving towards more equitable payday loans and land titles, more than half of U.S. states do not have allrestrictions on short-term loans. Anyone with a valid identity document and proof of income can take out a loan.

According to a securities lender, Texas is the state with the highest interest rates on securities lending. The average APR for a subprime loan in Texas is 664%, which is insanely high. This interest rate is 40 times higher than the average credit card interest rate.

Benefits of the Federal Capped Interest Rate

The main benefit of the federal capped interest rate is that it will protect consumers from drowning in high cost loans. Supporters of this bill believe that any interest rate above 36% is predatory.

This federal interest cap will end the high cost payday loans that have stolen billions of dollars from American consumers. These lenders derive most of their profits by luring borrowers into a debt trap, a never-ending cycle of debt repayment.

High cost payday loans benefit American consumers who cannot get loan approval from traditional banks. These predatory payday loans are known to take hold in poor communities and prey on naive and desperate consumers.

Payday loans and title loans should be seen as a way to help people in financial emergency, not as a way to take advantage of desperate people and trap them in debt.

Some people think that payday loans and title loans are going bankrupt. People will then rely on banks for small loans, which could protect them from predatory lending and reduce systemic racism.

The disadvantages of the federal capped interest rate

Opponents of the idea of ​​a federal capped interest rate claim that this policy will actually reduce access to credit because it will bankrupt lenders. If lenders go bankrupt, consumers will have nowhere to go for emergency cash.

Opponents of this bill also believe it takes money from the economy when lenders go bankrupt. Payday lenders help people pay for car repairs so they can go to work, pay medical bills, and pay for other emergencies.

Plus, the high interest rates charged by short-term lenders seem high, but in reality, the short loan term and small loan amount mean that most borrowers don’t pay more than $ 50. However, this only applies to small, short term loans.

A different approach

Another approach that could help consumers avoid excessive debt is to introduce a policy that requires lenders to turn down borrowers who apply for loans within 30 days of taking out three consecutive payday loans.

This approach would regulate payday loans by limit repeated borrowing, which could help consumers avoid debt traps. This would force consumers to repay the loan rather than continue to borrow.

If your bank account doesn’t look so good and you have bad credit, you may have considered a car title loan as a quick way to get cash. While these may only be relatively small amounts of money, auto title loans can be risky if you don’t have good control over your finances.

This article will examine how auto title loans work and assess the benefits and risks of getting one. To help consumers make informed financing decisions, our research team also combed the industry to identify the best auto loan companies.

What Are Car Title Loans?

Unlike payday loans, which serve a similar purpose, auto title loans work by putting your vehicle as collateral. These secured loans are for small amounts of money and often have to be repaid within a short period of time.

The Pew Charitable Trusts reports that the average loan amount is $ 1,000. Since these are short-term loans, usually with terms of between 15 and 30 days, borrowers usually have to pay off the balance all at once.

How Do Car Title Loans Work?

The process for getting an auto title loan is relatively straightforward:

  1. First of all, you complete an application. You then show the car, title, and a copy of your photo ID to the lender. You may be asked for a duplicate car key.
  2. If the loan is approved, the car title lender exchanges the money and retains the vehicle title.
  3. At the time of repayment, you pay the lender a monthly fee in addition to the amount borrowed.

The monthly fees for a vehicle title loan tend to be very high interest. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the average fee is 25%, which works out to an annual percentage rate (APR) of about 300%. It can be costly.

For example, let’s say you take out an auto title loan for $ 500 with a 25% finance charge. Twenty-five percent of $ 500 equals $ 125, which is added to the final amount owed. So, at the time of repayment, you will owe $ 625.

Apply for a car title loan

Borrowers can get auto title loans online and in person. A credit check is particularly absent from the auto title loan application process. This is because the non-payment of the loan means that the lender can repossess your vehicle.

To approve you for a car title loan, most lenders will require a clear title. This means that you have paid for the vehicle. However, some lenders may just need you to prove that you have equity in the vehicle.

Why are car title loans risky?

With an auto title loan, you risk not only losing your car, but also finding yourself locked in a cycle of debt. If you are unable to repay the loan, the lender may allow you to do a “renewal”. A rollover is when a lender allows you to hold the loan money for an additional 30 days, but makes sure you have to pay additional monthly fees.

Reversals are quite common. In June 2019, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) surveyed consumers who had obtained auto title loans in the previous six months. He found that 83% of respondents still owed money on their loans.

The CFPB also reported that about 20% of borrowers experience repossession if their loans are not repaid in full. According to Forbes, auto title lenders derive most of their income from allowing borrowers to take out new loans to pay off existing loans. This cycle of small loans turning into long-term debt also ensures business continuity.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of car title loans?

If you are considering taking out an auto title loan to meet unforeseen expenses, you should consider the pros and cons:

Benefits of car title loan Disadvantages of car title loan
No credit check means approval for borrowers
with bad credit
Monthly payments can turn into long-term debt
You have access to quick cash Your car could be taken back
Late payments do not affect your credit score Interest rates are high compared to other options

Auto title loans can be attractive to borrowers with poor credit because most title lenders do not perform credit checks. Plus, your credit score won’t be affected if you’re late on a payment. That said, getting quick access to cash with an auto title loan rarely justifies the high interest rates and the potential to lose a valuable asset.

Alternatives to car title loans

Since the data behind auto title lending is less than stellar, going down another route is probably a smarter financial decision. Here are some alternatives to displaying your car’s title:

  • Payday advance: If you are in good standing with your employer, you may be able to receive part of your salary sooner.
  • Friends and family: If you want to avoid a financial institution altogether, try chatting with friends and family to see if you can put together a loan deal with a payment plan.
  • Credit card: Credit cards have set limits, and you will be charged interest if you do not pay your balance by the end of the billing period. Even so, credit cards have lower interest rates than car title loans.
  • Personal loans: These installment loans can be used for almost any financial need and are available from banks, credit unions, and online lenders. They often have repayment terms of one to five years, and their interest rates are much lower than auto title loans.

Best recommendations for auto loans

Whether you’re financing a car or using one as collateral, it’s important to compare options to make sure you’re getting the best rate. It is wise to always read the terms of each loan and check for potential penalties. You can also take advantage of the online prequalification offered by many financial institutions.

Faq: car title loans

What Title Loan Can I Get For My Car?

According to the CFPB, the average auto title loan is around $ 1,000. The usual loan limit is between 25% and 50% of the value of the car.

Is It Easy To Get A Car Title Loan?

Getting a car title loan is pretty straightforward. The borrower fills out an application and lets the lender inspect the vehicle and its title. If the ownership of the vehicle is clear and the lender approves the application, the borrower returns the title in exchange for a loan.

How do auto title loans work?

Auto title loans are small, short-term loans with high interest rates. With a car title loan, a lender keeps the title of your vehicle as collateral. If you do not repay the loan, the lender has the right to repossess the vehicle.

Does Securities Lending Affect Your Credit?

Most auto title loans do not require a credit check. This means that a lender is unlikely to report the payments to the credit bureaus because they can repossess the vehicle to settle the debt.

Get to know what a car title loan is and how it works.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Need money fast to pay rent, bills or deal with emergencies? Then an auto title loan could be the answer to your money problems.

A car title loan is a short term loan where the borrower uses the title of his car, truck, motorcycle, semi-truck or any other vehicle as collateral. Simply put, a car title loan is where a borrower gives the lender title to their vehicle in exchange for quick funds. Just like payday loans, car title loans usually last for 15 to 30 days, and you can get up to $ 10,000 to deal with any unforeseen emergency you may have.

Car title loans are attractive because they are quick, don’t require a credit check, have less paperwork, and you can get the money in less than an hour of walking into the lender’s store. All you have to do is take your car to the lender, get their approval for the loan, give the lender title to your vehicle, get the money, and pay off the loan on the due date. ‘deadline. But before you apply for an auto title loan, you need to make sure that your vehicle is clean, free from payment, and in good repair. A vehicle with past due payments or repair problems will reduce your chances of getting the loan.
The exact amount you get from a car title loan is based on the current market value of the vehicle used as collateral. And the loan limit is usually between 25% and 50% of the current market value of your vehicle.

Before getting an auto title loan, you should know that there are two types of auto title loans – and which one you get depends on the agreement between you and the lender. The types of auto title loans available to you are:

1. Single payment loans: This car title loan requires you to repay the money owed, including the 25% monthly finance charge (interest rate) and other charges, all at once after 30 days. . Multiple payments are not accepted in this type of auto title loan, and borrowers have to pay it all off in one large sum or risk losing their vehicle.

2. Installment loans: This auto title loan allows you to make several payments spread over 3 to 6 months. Most installment loans also have an annual percentage rate (APR) that tells you how much it costs to borrow money for a year. The APR is based on:

• The amount borrowed
• Monthly interest rate
• Term of the loan
• And how much you pay for the additional costs.

How it works
Getting a car title loan is very easy, as lenders don’t care about proof of your income source or your credit score. They only need your car and a few documents to show that you are who you are and that you own the car. Your application can be completed on the lender’s website, but you will need to bring your car to the lender’s physical store for document verification and vehicle inspection.

Here’s how an auto title loan works:
Step 1: You complete the application form online or in the lender’s physical store.

Step 2: You show the lender your car and other necessary documents like your photo ID and proof of your car title, auto insurance, and driver’s license.

Step 3: The lender checks the condition of the vehicle, confirms the documents and approves the loan.

Step 4: You get the money and he keeps your car title

Step 5: You pay off the loan plus interest after 30 days and get title back to your car.
In addition, a lender may also require a borrower to install a GPS tracker or device that turns off a car’s ignition in the vehicle in the event of a potential trade-in. This extra detail is put in place to protect the interest of the lender as there is an above average risk of default with this short term loan.

A real life example of how to get a car title loan
Travis is strapped for cash and cannot afford his daughter’s medical bills. He decides to borrow money from a lender using his vehicle as collateral for an auto title loan. He gives the lender the necessary documentation and he obtains a loan of up to 50% on the basis of the current market value of his vehicle. He reimburses after 30 days and recovers the title of his vehicle again.

Title lending vs registration lending https://cflweb.org/title-lending-vs-registration-lending/ https://cflweb.org/title-lending-vs-registration-lending/#respond Thu, 15 Jul 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://cflweb.org/title-lending-vs-registration-lending/ If you need the cash right away and you own a car, you might be wondering whether you should get a title loan or a registration loan.

If you need the cash right away and you own a car, you might be wondering whether you should get a title loan or a registration loan. Both of these loans provide a way to get financing quickly by using certain aspects of your car to secure the loan, but there are some differences between the two options. Let’s dive deeper into this online securities lending and registration loans are, and how they differ from each other.

What is a title loan?

A title loan is a secured loan that allows you to use your car as collateral to secure funds. You can receive a loan amount of up to 50% of the appraised value of your vehicle and you can continue to drive your car while you pay off the loan. Most securities lenders require that you own or hold equity in your vehicle. If you get the approval, the lender will keep your title while you make loan payments.

What is an enrollment loan?

A registration loan is a secured loan that uses your car’s registration as collateral, so you may be able to get approved without owning the car. The lender will decide the loan amount based on factors such as the value of your vehicle and your income. Just like with title loans, you can continue to drive your car while you pay off the loan.

Differences between title loans and registration loans

Eligibility criteria

Title loans require you to own your car or have equity in your car to qualify, unlike car registration loans. With a registration loan, all you need to do is have the registration in your name.

Amount of the loan

Title loans have higher borrowing limits than registration loans since you must own your car. You may be able to receive a title loan worth 25 to 50% of the appraised value of your vehicle.

Interest rate

Vehicle registration loans may have higher interest rates because they do not involve the use of your car as collateral.

Risk of repossession

Although the lender can repossess your car if you do not pay off a title loan, there is no risk of repossession with registration loans since you are not using your car as collateral. But they can come with other risks in default, such as the lender sending collections after you or suing you for the remaining balance.

The bottom line

Since title loans can come with lower interest rates and higher borrowing limits, they may be the right option for you if you own your car. But if you don’t own your car and need some quick cash, you may want to consider getting a car license. Do your research and compare lenders and loan terms to find the best option for your situation, and make sure you can repay the loan before you apply.

Governor JB Pritzker signed the Illinois Predatory Lending Prevention Act late last month, which caps annual interest rates on short-term loans at 36%.

The law, which took effect immediately, has an impact on payday loans – typically a two-week loan in which the money is taken from the borrower’s next paycheck. It also has an impact on auto title lending and other short-term loan products.

“Anything over 36% is predatory and wear and tear,” said State Senator Jacqueline Collins, who co-sponsored the measure. “So we know that high-cost payday loans and auto loans have robbed communities of billions and billions of dollars, primarily black and brown communities in the state of Illinois.”

Kesha Warren knows the high cost firsthand. When she needed a short-term cash infusion of $ 1,250 to cover the wage costs of her small janitorial services business in 2019, she took out an auto title loan, a short-term loan that uses the borrower’s vehicle as collateral.

She says she has been left out of more traditional bank loans.

“No one wants to lend to someone who has $ 100,000 in student loans, so it was very difficult for me to get a traditional loan,” Warren said.

The loan carried an annual interest rate of 197%. This inflated her original loan by $ 1,250 into a total payment of $ 3,400 which she repaid earlier this year. If she hadn’t, it could have cost her an additional $ 2,000.

But Steve Brubaker, who lobbies the state government on behalf of the Illinois Small Loan Association, says the 36% rate cap in the law will effectively bankrupt most breakdown and auto title stores. while cutting a lifeline for borrowers with poor credit.

“We are closing these stores, we are laying people off, we are not giving customers any options and we are taking a billion dollars out of the market that was used to fix your car, buy a new refrigerator, spend on children’s clothes for. school, ”Brubaker said.

The average APR for an auto title loan in Illinois is 197%, according to statistics from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. The average rate for payday loans is 297%.

But Brubaker says the numbers are misleading. When you measure the typical two-week loan term, it comes down to about $ 15 per cent.

“When they see this giant figure, they misunderstand what the customer has to pay back,” Brubaker said. “The average payday loan amount in 2019 was $ 340. And the average fee amount was $ 52.

Brent Adams is Vice President of the Woodstock Institute, a nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of low income communities and communities of color. He says the payday loan industry relies on hooking borrowers into a never-ending cycle of debt with hidden running costs.

“The business model is to keep the consumer on the loan, so when the bill comes due, the lender will offer an option to roll over the loan, refinance it, take out a different loan, a number of options,” Adams said. . .

“It’s seen as an opportunity to be able to meet needs, but in reality it’s (to enter) a cycle of debt,” said Lizette Carretero, head of financial well-being at the Resurrection Project. “We see it mostly in communities of color, we see it in households earning less than $ 25,000 a year.”

Even if Pritzker signed the legislation, the problem might not end there.

Opponents of the payday lending industry say they are concerned about a series of bills currently circulating in the General Assembly. They say these bills would take away some of the protections in the new law.

State Senator Sue Rezin is a sponsor of one such Senate bill, SB2306, which she says would protect consumers while giving them access to lending options.

“Senate Bill 2306 proposes a simple amendment to the Predatory Loan Prevention Act that would continue to allow traditional financial institutions to offer convenient, well-regulated auto loans to consumers in Illinois through Illinois auto dealers, ”Rezin said in an emailed statement to WTTW News. .

“Protecting Illinois consumers is essential, which is why my bill strikes a balance between protecting Illinois consumers and ensuring secure access to auto credit. Under this legislation, interest rate caps are still in place to protect consumers from predatory lenders. I look forward to working with all parties to address their specific concerns as we move forward with this bill. “

State Representative John Carroll, who sponsored a similar bill in the House of Representatives, declined to be interviewed.

Brubaker says he believes the 36% rate cap will unintentionally push borrowers into even more dangerous and unregulated online lending products.

But Collins says credit unions and community banks can pick up the slack, and ending predatory lending helps eliminate systemic racism.

“Unless we really face these policies and institutional barriers, we will always be faced with policies that preserve inequalities,” Collins said.

The Resurrection Project Carretero agrees. “We understand that people (enter) these programs because of credit issues. We strive to work with credit unions, community banks, second chance products from real institutions that allow you to re-enter the financial sector and seek opportunities to create a better financial journey, ”he said. she declared.

People need money for all kinds of different activities, from the food they eat to the car they drive, and even the gasoline that the same car spends. Unfortunately, while there are times when you have enough money to meet all the needs that are indirectly fueled by money, there are also times when certain products are forgotten for a certain period due to the lack of money.

This is when people start to think about getting a loan hoping that they will recover financially and continue with the specific lifestyle they are used to. Unfortunately, people rush to make certain financial decisions to get money as quickly as possible without realistically asserting their capabilities. That is why we will try to bring you closer to the possibilities of half-price securities lending and explain how they work.

In order to move on to the topic you are interested in, we need to start with the basics to clarify terminology closely related to the topic. Therefore, we will discuss the meaning of the various financial opportunities which might prove to be crucial to explain so that you can make the most of the amenities offered. After all, learning which option is ideal for your cause will help you feel more secure in making important loan decisions for your cause.

Securities lending

Image source: pexels.com

To apply for a title loan, a debtor must be in possession of some property valuable enough to be used as insurance that the debt would eventually be paid. Therefore, a debtor receives the previously agreed amount of money and, in return, his asset serves as collateral if the agreement is not honored, and a lean is placed on the title of his car.

The positive sides of securities lending are extremely tempting for different types of debtors since you do not need to have a positive credit rating to apply for this type of loan. Likewise, you will receive the full amount as soon as you have completed the paperwork.

On the other hand, if for example you are applying for a car title loan, you will need to provide your benefactor with a spare pair of car keys and sometimes even allow him or her to put a tracking device on your route to ensure that ‘he has his potential assets monitored if you don’t repay the loan. Another disadvantage of a title loan is that it is considered a theft in the light of day since the interest rates are sky-high. These are short term loans and they often last for half to a full month, although they can last longer.

APR

Image source: pexels.com

The APR stands for “annual percentage rate”. It is used to show the amount of interest you pay if you opt for a loan and it covers the period of an entire year. Depending on the policy of different lenders, the interest rate can be calculated daily or monthly. Therefore, paying close attention to the APR is what is crucial when choosing a specific lender or choosing a particular loan.

The most ideal solution to different loan options is to calculate the exact amount of money you will have at the end of the loan period and compare them, so that you end up with the most favorable offer for your cause.

Whether you have bad credit or no credit at all, there are always better alternatives than having a title loan. You can refinance your loan at half the rate if you make an effort and contact one of the advantageous lenders, like www.boisetitleloan.com, which offers half-price loans, with competitive interest rates and a transparent service with no fees. hidden extra.

Half-price securities lending

Image source: pexels.com

When you finally come up with your options and decide to take out a title loan, the best thing you can do for your financial benefit is to choose from potential lenders and select the most optimal offer. Well, since there are full price loans, aka title loans, where you pay full interest based on your agreed terms, there are also alternative possibilities offered by local businesses which tend to upgrade any offer. that is offered to you. The reason why they are called half-price is obvious since they offer their debtors payment terms that are just as long, but with a less restrictive APR.

Not only will opting for this solution give you more space to manage your money, but you will also have the opportunity to do business with a small business that is aware of the problems of an ordinary man, instead of doing the same with companies that do. usually show no understanding when it comes to extending the term of your loan.

What’s interesting is that the usual amount of money you should receive for an asset that you intend to pledge is equal to a quarter of the estimated value of the asset itself. Therefore, you can easily know how much money you can expect if you are realistic with the value of your asset. What is not so convenient about securities lending is that the interest rates are not favorable to the lenders, and if you decide to go into this type of business, you will have to pay until. double the amount granted to you, even three times. so much.

Image source: pexels.com

These particular loans are also called “predatory loans” because breaking the vicious circle of paying only interest is a difficult task not only because you have to pay the lender back quickly, but also because the interest is extremely high. high compared to the amount given to you. The reason they are called “predatory loans” is that lenders figuratively feast on interest until the debtor manages to repay the principal, which can take a long time due to unfavorable loan terms.

When all of the aforementioned data is taken into consideration, the conclusion might be that you shouldn’t rush into unverified loans and quick cash just because you haven’t considered all of the financing options available. What you need to do is do your homework and check out all the possible opportunities and choose the one that is right for you and that best fits your financial capabilities. After all, why would you pay more, when you can easily pay less if you just invest some of your time in quality selection.

LOS ANGELES, December 23, 2020 / PRNewswire / – When an emergency arises and you need cash quickly, using a vehicle as collateral for a loan can be a good solution.

But if you are considering a title loan or a registration loan, it is essential to understand what defines these very different types of loans. Although both are related to the use of a vehicle in exchange for funds, these two types of loans have their own advantages and disadvantages.

What is the difference between a title loan and a registration loan?

First, it is essential to distinguish between the title of a vehicle and its registration. The title is used to indicate the ownership of the car. When a vehicle is sold, title will transfer from the current owner (often a dealership, bank or private seller) to the buyer. On the other hand, a registration means that the vehicle can be driven legally.

With this in mind, the essential distinction between these two types of loan is that a title loan requires a blank title on behalf of the loan recipient. A blank title means there are no outstanding loans or unpaid tickets that would prevent the vehicle from being sold. In contrast, vehicle registration loans only require registration to be in the name of the loan recipient, regardless of who the vehicle title may identify.

The benefits of a title loan

  • Loan amounts may be larger – With a title loan, the loan amount is based on the value of the vehicle. By securing the loan by offering the title as collateral, the lenders can give more money as they are more likely to be repaid.
  • Interest rates are lower – The interest rates on title loans are generally slightly lower than those on registration loans because of the collateral provided by the title of the vehicle.

The disadvantages of a title loan

  • The vehicle can be taken back – Since title is turned over to receive the loan, the loan company could attempt to repossess the car if it is not paid back on time.
  • The title must be clean – This means that there is no lien on the vehicle, whether it is an outstanding car loan or unpaid tickets.

The advantages of a registration loan

  • Vehicle can be financed – A borrower does not need to be the outright owner of the car to be eligible for a registration loan.
  • The car cannot be taken back – Since the title is the document that signifies ownership, a loan company cannot claim the vehicle on the sole basis of possession of the registration.

The disadvantages of a registration loan

  • Credit and income are factors – Since a registration loan is unsecured, lenders will use standard loan requirements such as employment and credit score to determine the loan amount. This means that registration loans may not be readily available to someone who is unemployed or who is working to get better credit.
  • Loan amounts may be less – Registration loans are often for lower amounts than securities loans and usually have higher interest rates.

What is the best option?

The choice between a title loan and an enrollment loan depends entirely on the borrower’s circumstances. Vehicle registration loans tend to be beneficial for borrowers who need less money and still pay off their vehicle. Title loans work best for owners of cars with proper title who are looking for access to more funds.

Either way, it’s important to understand the loan requirements and repayment expectations before signing the title or vehicle registration.

The Government Savings Bank (GSB) plans to enter the auto securities lending market with a focus on retail loans worth up to 200,000 baht per borrower.

The bank’s penetration into the auto securities lending market is aimed at lowering the interest rates charged in this lending segment, President Vitai Ratanakorn said.

The Bank of Thailand has cut interest rates on auto securities lending to 24%, from 28% on Aug. 1, but the rate remains high, Vitai said.

GSB plans to cap the interest on the car title loan at 18%, plus or minus not more than 2%. The 18% rate will be assessed based on customer profiles, Vitai said.

For example, a car with good terms may receive a 16% interest rate, while older models or vehicles with risky conditions might see 2% interest added to the 18% rate.

The 18% interest rate for auto title loans, classified as unsecured loans, is lower than the interest rates charged by non-bank companies.

But GSB can still make a profit because the bank’s existing unsecured loan products have interest rates below 18%, Vitai said.

Non-bank companies involved in auto securities lending have a net interest margin of 15-20%, higher than the NIM of 2% in public banks and 3% in commercial banks, he said.

GSB is evaluating a potential joint venture partner in the automotive securities lending industry.
