26-239 C.M.R. ch. 100, § 8 - Credit Discrimination Prohibited
Current through 2022-14, April 6, 2022
A dealer must adhere to the prohibitions against discrimination in the Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Law, which is found at Title 15, 1691(a) through (c) of the United States Code Annotated and the State's Fair Credit Extension Act, which is found at Title 5, Maine Revised Statutes Annotated, Sections 4595 through 4598.
These federal and state laws detail unlawful credit discrimination. For example, it is unlawful for any creditor to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, marital status or age, or because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program.
