When do I need to issue Adverse Action Notice?
The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), requires a creditor who takes adverse action on a consumer’s credit application to provide a “statement of reasons” for the action.
Adverse action notice is required when:
- Credit is denied or Credit is not even submitted for approval
- Credit is not granted upon the terms requested;
- or The decision is based entirely or in part on information contained in a consumer report.
According to the ECOA, any denial of credit, or a decision on behalf of the dealership not to even submit a credit.
