If an individual loans cash to another individual, do California usury laws apply to the interest rate that can be charged?
Asked over 1 year ago - Cypress, CA
If I loan $20,000 to a friend who really needs the money and he is happy to pay 15% for the loan, would it violate California law to do so?

It might. An attorney would really need to review the agreement to give you a thorough answer.
Yes it violates usury laws if it is a true loan and you are not a finance company or other exempt lender.,
