But now Reading his contract Over again he finds he signed the contract for 11.08 per cent. That is the apr for a three year contract a the is highly upset and no matter How hard i try to convince him that 11.08 apr is the same As 6 per cent add a on he does not comprehend. A truth in lending is a Long overdue disclosure and protective Law. But it will be a Long time or perhaps never until the Borrower asks what apr actually is being charged. But he does ask and does know the meaning of 6 per cent add on a is. Mooney we done to want to fail you and done to even like differing with you. We understand the problem you Are having but feel it gradually will be solved. We Are always optimistic about other Peoples problems but we think you have proved our Point. Before enactment of the truth in lending Law millions of or. Smiths never realized what annual interest rate they did pay. Different lenders and Sellers would state their charges in different ways. These tended to minimize the True annual rate and also were difficult to compare. For example for $100 of credit for one year a banker would Tell you and orally still May that the charge is �?o$7 this Means you sign a note to repay $100 but get just $93 in your hand. A finance company or car dealer would and still May quote �?o$8 add this Means you must repay $108 for $100 of credit. An appliance dealer May say a $10 add a department store May quote a fee of $8.23 for a Book of $100 Worth of coupons that you can spend like Cash in any department. You pay Back $108.25. A credit Union May say that you pay i per cent a month on your declining balance the amount remaining unpaid at the end of each month. A store May charge 12 per cent a month on the declining balance of a a a budget or a Junior charge account. A Small loan company May quote 3 per cent a month. Now All dealers and lenders must reveal the annual percentage rates. Thus borrowers have a uniform yardstick for comparing finance charges and also for deciding whether they can save by using their own savings. The borrowers can see for example that when a Bank says it charges a a a discount of $7 per $100, this really is an annual rate of almost 14 per cent. The reason Why the True annual rate is about twice the Dollar rate per $100 of the original balance is that you Are paying Back meanwhile and Over the life of the loan you really owe Only about half the original amount. Thus on a debt of $100 repaid monthly Over 12 months your average debt is Only $54. A charge of �?o$7 per $100�?� would be an annual percentage rate of about 13 per cent on that average debt. The borrowers also can see that a finance charge of $12 per $100 on a used car or household appliance is about 23 per cent annually that a a service charge of Ivi per cent a month on a a a revolving or a a budget charge account is the equivalent of 18 per cent a year that a Small loan company a �?o3 per cent a month is really an annual rate of 36 per cent no less. While the annual rate must be stated in the contract some dealers and lenders May not reveal it until they give you the contract to sign. For purposes of comparison shopping credit it is important to ask the annual percentage rate beforehand. To Henri e. Grenon or. And mrs. James Lewis Home of 602 Shamrock re.
