What do cash advances actually cost?
Lawsuit cash advances come out of your final settlement/verdict. Because lawsuit funding is non-recourse, the regulations are different from normal loans – and they technically aren’t loans at all. Because of this, lenders can charge more interest. Lawsuit cash advances CAN be predictive – here’s a few things to look out for when considering a lawsuit funding cash advance: large upfront fees, compounded interest, unclear contracts, bad service, pressure tactics.
Taking lawsuit cash advances can bite in your settlement, which is why they are considered costly, and can be a problem. No matter which company you get the loan from – if you take too much money, you’ll regret it later. It’s important you remember that you only take what you need – not the maximum amount of money you qualify for.
Upfront fees: These fees usually incur interest. Don’t let a lawsuit funding company charge you upfront fees. It’s important you ask for a payoff table and the final total price.
Compound interest: Compounded interest can quickly balloon your lawsuit cash advances. Remember, a 3% monthly interest is technically 43% in the first year, and can get to 100% by year two. It’s a good idea if you ask the lawsuit funding company if the interest is simple, or compounded. If there isn’t a clear payoff table – then don’t sign the contract.
Not all cases qualify
Not all cases qualify – unfortunately. Some cases are easy to review. Some cases are very difficult, and the more complicated the case is the less likely it’ll qualify for funding. Some lenders will only offer cash advances on car advances, or other simpler cases where liability is clear cut.
