Companies that offer payday and or title loans must get a license from the division. The licensing requirements extend to agents, brokers or facilitators of the loan company.
Oregon requires all new payday and title lenders to apply through
the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). Follow the NMLS instructions to get an Oregon license and complete
criminal background and credit check authorization forms.
Lenders are limited to charging:
The loan’s annual percentage rate (APR) is 153.77 percent if you charge the maximum interest rate and origination fee.
503-947-7300, option 2
You must provide to your customers a written loan agreement clearly explaining the fees, percentage rate, payment due dates, and the action you will take if payments are delayed or in default.
All licensees must file
annual reports by March 31 each year. The report must cover your operations for the previous calendar year.
See the NMLS Oregon page to apply for a license renewal.
