The Most Important Consumer Statute in Your State

An unfair and deceptive acts and practices (UDAP) statute usually provides attorney fees and enhanced damages for a wide array of deceptive or abusive practices. NCLC's manual for over 30 years has been the definitive treatise in this area for use in all 50 states:

  • Predatory lending, loan brokers, and mortgage abuse
  • Credit card abuses
  • Application to national banks
  • Automobile sales, financing, leasing
  • Manufactured homes and parks
  • Service contracts and auto repair
  • Landlord-tenant, insurance, utilities
  • Failure to disclose
  • Unfairness standards
  • Liability of third parties for UDAP violations
  • Scope of each state's UDAP statute
  • Preconditions to litigation under each state's UDAP statute
  • Detailed analysis of UDAP attorney fees.
