What is the statute of limitations on a payday loan in louisiana?

Asked over 2 years ago - Kenner, LA

My husband had a few payday loans 8 yrs ago and We are wondering if he's in the clear. He was in an accident and couldn't pay them.

    Answered . The statute of limitations in LA is 10 years for written contracts, but it is only 3 years for "open-ended accounts," which are typically credit cards. I'm not sure how LA treats a payday loan, but since it's not "open-ended," but, rather, a specified amount, I'd have to say the SOL is 10 years from the date of LAST payment or agreement to pay.
