Title 14A. Consumer Credit Code
§14A-2-204. Deferral charges.
(1) With respect to any consumer credit sale, refinancing or consolidation, the parties before or after default may agree in writing to a deferral of all or part of one or more unpaid installments.
(2) With respect to a consumer credit sale, refinancing, or consolidation, which is not precomputed, at the time of deferral the buyer may agree in writing to a deferral charge that the seller may make and collect.
(3) With respect to a precomputed consumer credit sale, refinancing, or consolidation, the seller may make and collect a charge not exceeding the rate previously stated to the buyer pursuant to the provisions on disclosure (Part 3) applied to the amount or amounts deferred for the period of deferral calculated without regard to differences in lengths of months, but proportionally for a part of a month, counting each day as one-thirtieth (1/30) of a month.
(4) A deferral charge may be collected at the time it is assessed or at any time thereafter.
(5) The seller may, in addition to the deferral charge, make appropriate additional charges (Section 2-202). The amount of these additional charges which is not paid in cash may be added to the amount financed. With respect to a precomputed consumer credit sale, refinancing, or consolidation, these additional charges not paid in cash may be considered part of the amount deferred for the purpose of calculating the deferral charge.
(6) The parties may agree in writing at the time of a precomputed consumer credit sale, refinancing, or consolidation that if an installment is not paid within ten (10) days after its due date, the seller may unilaterally grant a deferral and make charges as provided in subsection (3) of this section.
(7) No deferral charge may be made for a period after the date that the seller elects to accelerate the maturity of the agreement, except in circumstances where the seller waives the acceleration and the parties then mutually agree to a deferral.
(8) With respect to a precomputed consumer credit sale, refinancing, or consolidation, a delinquency charge made by the seller on an installment may not be retained if a deferral charge is made pursuant to this section with respect to the period of delinquency.
