Title 8 - Commercial Law and Consumer Protection.
Chapter 37 - Guaranteed Asset Protection Waivers.
Section 8-37-6 - Cancellation of Gap Waiver Agreements.
Cancellation of GAP waiver agreements.
(a) Guaranteed asset protection waiver agreements shall be cancellable. GAP waivers shall provide that if a borrower cancels a waiver within the Free Look Period, the creditor, administrator, or other authorized party shall provide the borrower a full refund of the purchase price of the GAP waiver, provided no benefits have been provided. In the event a borrower cancels the waiver after the Free Look Period and no benefits have been provided, the creditor, administrator, or other authorized party shall provide the borrower a pro rata refund of the purchase price, less any cancellation fee no greater than fifty dollars ($50) in accordance with the terms of the waiver.
(b) In the event of cancellation of the GAP waiver due to early termination of the finance agreement, the creditor shall provide, or cause the administrator or retail seller to provide, within 60 days of termination, any refund due to a borrower without requiring the borrower to request cancellation of the waiver.
(c) Any cancellation refund under subsection (a) or (b) may be applied by the creditor as a reduction of the amount owed under the finance agreement unless the borrower can show that the finance agreement has been paid in full.
