On April 27, the Texas Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner issued an advisory bulletin encouraging credit access businesses to consider certain emergency measures in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. The bulletin encouraged credit access businesses to work with consumers by increasing communications, working out loan modifications that avoid delinquencies and negative credit reporting, waiving certain charges and fees, and suspending vehicle repossession and charge offs. The office also extended the deadline for required first quarter reporting from April 30 until May 31, 2020, and permitted credit access business activity to occur from otherwise unlicensed locations, so long as certain requirements are met.
