As an added bonus, the following is a federal statute you might find relevant.
A creditor has considerable flexibility in defining features for open-end plans, as long as the creditor has a reasonable basis for the distinctions. For further explanation and examples of how to determine the components of this formula, see appendix F to part 226.
2. Daily rate with specific transaction charge.Section 226.14(c)(3) sets forth an acceptable method for calculating the annual percentage rate if the finance charge results from a charge relating to a specific transaction and the application of a daily periodic rate. This section includes the requirement that the creditor follow the rules in appendix F to part 226 in calculating the annual percentage rate, especially the provision in the introductory section of appendix F which addresses the daily rate/transaction charge situation by providing that the average of daily balances shall be used instead of the sum of the balances.
14(d) Calculations where daily periodic rate applied.
1. Quotient method.Section 226.14(d) addresses use of a daily periodic rate(s) to determine some or all of the finance charge and use of the quotient method to determine the annual percentage rate. Since the quotient formula in § 226.14(c)(1)(ii) and (c)(2) cannot be used when a daily rate is being applied to a series of daily balances, § 226.14(d) provides two alternative ways to calculate the annual percentage rateeither of which satisfies the provisions of § 226.7(a)(7).
2. Daily rate with specific transaction charge. If the finance charge results from a charge relating to a specific transaction and the application of a daily periodic rate, see comment 14(c)(3)-2 for guidance on an appropriate calculation method.
Section 226.15Right of Rescission
1. Transactions not covered. Credit extensions that are not subject to the regulation are not covered by § 226.15 even if the customer’s principal dwelling is the collateral securing the credit. For this purpose, credit extensions also would include the occurrences listed in Comment 15(a)(1)-1. For example, the right of rescission does not apply to the opening of a business-purpose credit line, even though the loan is secured by the customer’s principal dwelling.
15(a) Consumer’s right to rescind.
1. Occurrences subject to right. Under an open-end credit plan secured by the consumer’s principal dwelling, the right of rescission generally arises with each of the following occurrences:
Opening the account.
Each credit extension.
Increasing the credit limit.
Adding to an existing account a security interest in the consumer’s principal dwelling.
Increasing the dollar amount of the security interest taken in the dwelling to secure the plan. For example, a consumer may open an account with a $10,000 credit limit, $5,000 of which is initially secured by the consumer’s principal dwelling. The consumer has the right to rescind at that time and (except as noted in § 226.15(a)(1)(ii)) with each extension on the account. Later, if the creditor decides that it wants the credit line fully secured, and increases the amount of its interest in the consumer’s dwelling, the consumer has the right to rescind the increase.
