Florida Title Loan Laws
Auto Title Loan, Car Title Loan, Vehicle Title Loan, and Auto Equity Loan
Florida A-type title loan is a way to borrow money against your motor vehicle’s value or equity. Based on your vehicle’s worth, the lender determines how much money you can borrow. On average, title loans are $200 to $10,000, but they can be as much as $20,000. The duration of these loans is can be up to 36 months. In a title loan transaction, you keep your motor vehicle and drive it, while the lender keeps the title to your motor vehicle as security for repayment of the loan. If you cannot repay your loan, the lender will repossess your motor vehicle, sell it and pocket whatever you owe.

What Will You Have to Pay?
Florida law allows a title lender to charge you interest on your loan of up of 19.9 per year for the first $2,000 you borrow; and 18% a year on any money you borrow over $3,000. You should look into our extensive FAQ for more information or please call us today at (877) 958-5373.
Get The Real Car Title Loan Facts You Need
Two Florida laws regulate title loan lenders. Under Chapter 537, you and the lender must sign a written agreement before you get your loan. Be sure to read and understand the agreement before you sign. It must say how much you are borrowing (called the “amount financed”) and what the interest rate will be. It must also give you the address and phone number of the Florida Department of Financial Services (formerly the Florida Department of Banking and Finance), the state agency that regulates title loans.
Under 357, the loan agreement must also explain that if you do not repay the loan the lender can take possession of your vehicle, sell it and keep the proceeds up to the amount you owe along with any reasonable expenses to cover the repossession and sale. Also, the lender must notify you if he intends to repossess your vehicle and you will have the chance to arrange to hand it over instead of having a repossession agent come to get it. You must have a chance to remove any personal property you have in the vehicle.
In addition, up until the time the car is sold, you still can get it back if you pay back your loan and any reasonable expenses. The lender has to tell you 10 days in advance of the time and place of the sale and give you an accounting of what is owed.
If you decide to take out a title loan, you should ask the lender what his policies are on notifying you in advance of a repossession or a sale, and on whether you might be able to get your car back before it is sold and for what charges.
