Consumer Credit Protection Act of 1968

Legislation in the United States requiring lenders to disclose to potential borrowers all terms of loans, including, but not limited to, the interest rates, applicable fees, and the length of loans. The Act also allows consumers to cancel some credit transactions that require a lien to be placed on the consumer's primary residence. For the most part, the Act does not place limits on the fees lenders may charge, but instead requires transparency. It is also called the Truth in Lending Act.
