Suppose you are working in a store and earn around $13/hour, have you faced any struggle during this COVID-19 pandemic? If you are a resident of Nevada, USA then surely it will affect you because in this crisis, the unemployment rate surge to 28.2% which is a huge number.
Nevada is a state in the western region of America and bordered with Idaho, Oregon, Arizona, Utah, and California around all its sides. The population of the state is above 2.8 million, and there bread & butter of most of the people depend on tourism, especially for gambling and resort industries. Think what happened to the state’s economy when the tourism got totally locked in a corona-virus outbreak? Not all, but surely some people suffered from a lot of financial issues at the time, and even now.
To tackle the situation, usually, people take out some kind of personal loan from banks that require ample documents, good credit score, or some collateral to secure the loan. It takes a few days to get approved. But what if you need money now within a day to pay your utility bills, what if you have a bad credit score? what if you don’t have or don’t want to put your valuable thing for the security of loan? Is there any option left in Nevada? Indeed, there is.
Payday loans are meant for a small amount and the small-term, especially for people with bad credit history. There are many flaws also if you don’t understand the rules and terms properly and just borrow it without any second thought. Like every state, Nevada has also its own laws for a payday loan but in the state its not very strict, let’s have a look here –
- The maximum loan amount is not fixed by the laws as it totally depends on your salary (not more than 25% of your monthly gross income) and loan provider.
- There are no limitations on the number of loans one can acquire.
- The highest APR (annual percentage rate) and finance charges that a lender can charge, is also not mentioned in the laws which mean rates can go as high as your loan provider wants.
- The maximum loan returning time is set to 35 days and in case you’re not able to pay then the lender will charge extra money to extend the loan but it is a violation of the law if the loan gets extended to 60 days.
- The Non-sufficient fees (NSF) are locked to $25 as per the Nevada rules.
- In case of default payment, it would not be considered as the criminal action but if you’re proved to do this intentionally then it can be.
There’s one advice for you if you’re borrowing payday loan in Nevada, due to its high rates and charges you can easily be trapped into debt. So, the most prominent thing before taking the decision of loan is to think twice if your reason for borrowing is seriously strong!
Plus, make a proper plan for repayment, if you’re not sure about that from where you’ll pay back then immediately drop this idea. Because, if you get failed to refund on time, then the lender can charge whatever they want for which you’ll borrow another loan and the cycle continues. As in the state rollovers are allowed which means, lemme make you clear with an example:
Suppose you have borrowed $350 for 14 days on an interest rate of $60 which means you owe $410 in 2 weeks to your lender. But if get failed, then your loan will be refinanced, how? By taking the interest rate i.e. $60 only and renew the loan with the same rate for the next few days which in total will become $60 + $350 + $60 = $460, and it will continue until you pay the whole amount. This is how a person gets into the worst situation if not move intelligently.
Therefore, read the terms & conditions very carefully to make good from this loan and try not to borrow from any third party. To make things clear and easy, it’s important to deal with a direct lender either online or in-front.
