Vermont Payday Loans

Vermont is a fascinating state filled with history and historical sites.  Vermont is the largest producer of maple syrup in the United States and is the second largest state in New England behind Maine.  Of the 13 colonies, Vermont was the first state admitted to the union.  Vermont is also home to some of the most interesting political stories in the nation.  The stories of candidates running as one party only to support the other party once elected are common. 

Vermont's laws prohibit interest rates that reach into triple digits.  This makes payday loans and cash advance loans effectively illegal in the state.  In order to operate in Vermont, payday loan companies must purchase a charter from a bank that has out of state offices.  Once that charter is purchased the loan company can then operate under the laws and limits set by the state in which the charter comes from. 

All things concerning payday loans and cash advances in Vermont are varied and depend on the parent state of the company's charter bank.  It is therefore possible to receive different interest rates at stores standing next door to one another.  For that reason Vermont has not published restrictions on loan amounts, interest charges, loan terms, or fees.
