This treatise includes a brief overview of those issues. NCLC’s Truth in Lending3 provides a more thorough discussion of the Act, including its scope, remedies, and other important topics.4 The Act’s loan disclosure requirements are detailed in Truth in Lending and not in this treatise.

State unfair and deceptive acts and practices statutes are important potential claims examined in this treatise, but even more detail on the scope, remedies and other aspects of these “UDAP” statutes is found in NCLC’s Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices.5 Manufactured-home loans and credit insurance issues are examined in Consumer Credit Regulation.6 That treatise also covers non-mortgage lending origination issues, such as those involving credit cards, payday loans, automobile finance, automobile title loans, and rent-to-own. Discrimination in mortgage lending is more thoroughly treated in NCLC’s Credit Discrimination.7
