On March 2, the FTC announced its intention to review its “Holder in Due Course Rule.” This rule requires that when a seller provides financing for a customer or refers the customer to a lender, the loan contract must include a notice that allows the consumer to assert claims or defenses against the lender or subsequent holder of the contract. The FTC indicated its intention, in connection with its review of this rule, to request comment on the economic impact of, and continuing need for, the rule, the potential conflict between the rule and other laws or regulations and the effect of any technological, economic or other industry changes on the rule.
