Texas Payday Loan CSO License Application and Regulations

Texas Credit Access Businesses

Texas Payday Loan License Application

Texas CSO/CAB Regulations

Texas Credit access businesses [payday loan lenders] obtain credit for a consumer from an independent third-party lender in the form of a deferred presentment transaction or a motor vehicle title loan, more commonly referred to as “payday loans” or “title loans.”

In Texas, the actual third-party lender is not licensed, rather the credit access business that serves as the broker is the licensee in this regulated industry. The credit access business charges a fee to the consumer for obtaining the third-party loan; this fee is usually calculated as a percentage of the loan amount.

The Texas borrowers will sign a promissory note with the lender for the actual loan and a separate credit service agreement with the credit access business. Generally, all documents are signed at the credit access business location and payments are made directly to the credit access business.
