WAC 208-630-542

What fees may I charge or collect when a borrower defaults on a small loan?

If the small loan is not in an installment plan, you may charge or collect a fee equal to or less than twenty-five dollars for a check returned unpaid by the bank drawn upon. Only one fee may be collected with respect to a particular check even if it has been redeposited and returned more than once. See WAC 208-630-549 for allowable default fees charged on small loans in an installment plan. On any one loan you can only charge the borrower twenty-five dollars. The fee will either be in the form of a returned check fee or an installment plan default fee, or some combination thereof; but in no event can you charge the borrower more than twenty-five dollars over the life of one loan.
