2014 Amendments to Utah Law regarding Payday Lending The amended law… gives borrowers 60 days after reaching the 10-week limit to pay off the debt without lenders taking further action against them. requires lenders to file any default lawsuits where borrowers live or obtained the loan. Many lenders now make customers waive that right. requires lenders to do at least minimal checking to see if borrowers can afford loans and rollovers. And it requires the industry to report to the state how many loans go the full 10 weeks, how many end up in default, and the amounts involved.
