WASHINGTON – The U.S. Federal Trade Commissioner, Rohit Chopra, has called for scrapping the use of a legal instrument called confession of judgment in small business lending contracts. Chopra urged the agency forum to be accountable for cleaning up this market. Use of such terms in small business loans contract since the last few years have led to several legal actions against small business borrowers.
The unregulated merchant cash-advance industry has got an edge over small business borrowers as it could not lose court dispute if someone agrees to legal terms such as confessions of judgment. Since 2012, small business borrowers have not managed to defeat cash-advance companies in over 25,000 judgments in the US. Under this, lenders have a right to legally seize borrowers’ bank accounts and other assets. A huge number of bad credit small business loans options are available which simply help business owners to arrange money in the case of emergency. Small business loans market has been witnessing growth at a huge rate. Many popular online sources such as capitalforbusiness.net have given many consumers an option to get a loan even if they have a bad credit.
Earlier, FTC had banned the use of confessions of judgment by using 1984 Credit Practices Rule. However, the rule was not applicable for small businesses. There are many reports of unfair marketing, sales, and collection practices in the small business finance market, so FTC has been taking action under the FTC Act to tackle such conduct. Chopra said that FTC is the only federal regulator in the non-bank small business financing market, so it has to keep an eye if any violation of law is there or not.
Katherine Fisher, who advocates for cash advance companies, said that FTC took the appropriate decision to ban confession of judgments as consumers don’t have much-needed protection due to limited options available. However, small businesses could easily resort to many other options, so there is no need to impose a ban on this case.
