In Alabama, the maximum loan amount is $500. The loan term limit is 31 days, but you’re allowed one rollover, which means you can extend your loan for up to another 31 days. Alabama enforces a minimum loan term as well – you must have the loan for at least 10 days. Your loan’s finance charges are not to be greater than 17.5-percent. So, the finance charge for a 14-day, $100 loan should be no more than $17.50, and the APR should be no more than 456.25-percent.
If you are unable to pay off your loan, your lender is allowed to charge you one $30 NSF fee, may file suit against you, and seek reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, and other collection fees . They are not, however, allowed to pursue criminal action, unless you closed your checking account.
