Credit Card Lending

SECTION 6-26.1-10

§ 6-26.1-10. Attorneys' fees – Costs.

In the event a borrower defaults under the terms of a plan, the credit card lender may, if the borrower's account is referred to an attorney (not a regularly salaried employee of the credit card lender) or to a third party for collection and if the agreement governing the credit card plan so provides, charge and collect from the borrower a reasonable attorneys' fee. In addition, following a borrower's default, the credit card lender may, if the agreement governing the plan so provides, recover from the borrower all court, alternative dispute resolution or other collection costs (including, without limitation, fees and charges of collection agencies) actually incurred by the credit card lender.
