Regulations for Collection Agencies in Texas
Collection agencies in Texas are regulated by the Fair Debt Practices Act (FDCPA). We are also regulated by Texas debt collection laws. There are laws that define and determine collection requirements, NSF bad check laws, garnishments, statute of limitations for both judgments and debts, plus agency licenses and bonding for Texas collection agencies.
Please note Texas debt collection laws can change over time. We stay current on the updates and changing regulations and requirements imposed on debt recovery.
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) are federal laws providing limitations on what debt collectors can do. It also covers how debt collection is reported on credit reports and works in conjunction with local Texas Collection regulations. Every collection agency in Texas must follow these guidelines.
We stick strictly to the requirements outlined in both federal and local laws and do not use abusive, unfair or deceptive practices to collect any debts.These laws and regulations do cover the collection of:
- Credit Card Debt
- Medical Debts
- Other debts for personal, household or family purposes.
Please note: the FDCPA does not cover business debts or generally cover collection by the original creditor to whom the debtor originally became indebted. Consumers and debt covered under this act exclude commercial debts. However, we are familiar with the laws for collecting commercial debt and are effective at doing so.
The restrictions we have to follow for include:
- Time and place
- Representation by attorney
Time and Place
We are required to contact debtors between specific hours, typically not before 8 am or after 9 pm. There are also specific guidelines about where we can contact people.
Harassment Free Collections
The laws are specific about restricting and defining harassment. We work very diligently to maintain a professional and effective collection routine while respecting the law.
You May Be Represented By an Attorney
There are guidelines that determine how we can collect from a debtor who is represented by an attorney. We work with our legal team to collect to the full extent of the law. We’re used to working with attorneys and know how to navigate collections through the legal system. We also work together with our own legal counsel to ensure all our collections agents, policies and strategies are above board.
