Truth In Lending Act Burden Of Proof  

The Truth in Lending Act is also referred to as TILA in short or an abbreviated version. The aim of the act is to protect consumers who go through credit transactions.

The act requires that the lenders disclose the most intricate and the major key terms to the customer to maintain transparency in the lending. That is why it is called the Truth in Lending Act.

The act basically ensures that the lender does have any hidden clauses or statements in the agreement that the lender and the borrower sign. The act allows the borrower to know exactly how much interest is being charged, what are the fees, what are the monthly installments and what would happen if he fails to pay the monthly installment or the loan amount.

When you do see a hidden clause in any of your agreement then it is called the loophole in the Truth in Lending Act on a lighter note. While lending, the lender carries the burden to disclose the lending terms, the cost and the interest rates involved accurately and correctly to the consumer. There are several things that are taken into consideration while lending like the rate of interest, the mortgage terms, the late payment charges and annual fee charges and many other kinds of financial obligations. If any of the terms is not included in the contract then the consumer can sue the lender on terms that all details (truth) were not disclosed. However, the burden of proof lies with the lender where he has to prove in the court that the lender did not disclosed all the details properly causing him damage. However, the burden of proof or the onus to substantiate the claim lies on the consumer and he or she has to prove that the lender has falsified things by not informing correctly the terms and conditions of the lending contract.
