The purpose of this note is to furnish the consumer advocate with an in-depth analysis of Kentucky's new predatory lending law by examining the basic structure of the statute, and its ambiguities, faults, and remedies. Practitioners will understand the impact the law may have on high-cost home loans, the potential traps that await their clients, and the provisions that require amending.
Part I discusses the applicability of the statute. Part II focuses on Kentucky's limitations that dovetail HOEPA requirements for high-cost home loans. Part III discusses provisions of the Kentucky law that require much more than, or in some cases something slightly different than, the federal legislation. Part IV considers causes of action and potential remedies
