CALIFORNIA FINANCE LENDERS LAW : ONE COMMERCIAL LOAN PER YEAR EXEMPTION

Posted by:

SB 777, Lara. The California Finance Lenders Law: application.
Existing law, the California Finance Lenders Law, provides for the licensure and regulation of finance lenders and brokers. Existing law exempts from its provisions, among others, persons making 5 or fewer commercial loans in a 12-month period if the loans are incidental to the business of the person relying upon the exemption.
This bill would also exempt, until January 1, 2022, a person who makes one commercial loan in a 12-month period from regulation pursuant to the California Finance Lenders Law.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

SECTION 1.

Section 22050.5 is added to the Financial Code, to read:

22050.5.

(a) This division does not apply to any person who makes one loan in a 12-month period if that loan is a commercial loan as defined in Section 22502.

(b) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2022, and as of that date is repealed.
