New York Debt Collection Statutes & Regulations

Debt collection is a strenuous procedure for many reasons. For the creditors and collection agencies it creates a deep dent on the budget and utilities valuable resources, it takes up a lot of time and there is always a chance of losing the debt money altogether. For the indebted, debt collection is like the bane of their existence because it is an endless cause of stress for them and a means of constant worry and perhaps even irritation.


To make certain that this admittedly exhausting procedure is carried out in the most conciliatory and smooth manner for all parties involved, a set of laws and regulations is mandatory.


Debt Collection Laws in New York

If you are a resident of the state of New York or your debt incurred in this state, then you should have accurate knowledge regarding debt collection laws in NY. Mentioned below are the two set of acts that govern debt collection:

  • The Fair Debt Collections and Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that outlines the rules and regulates debt collection.


  • The New York Debt Collection Regulations which have been in effect since August 2015.


Facts About Debt Collection in New York

According to the recently amended set of the New York debt collection regulations:

  • They do not apply on original creditors but only to collection agencies and the companies/persons that purchase consumer debts.
  • They do not apply on the collection of business debts.
  • Collectors must provide information regarding the exact amount of the debt, reason the debt incurred, the date it incurred, the name and details regarding the original creditors and all payments made since the debt incurred.
  • Collectors must also indicate the types of income protected from collection per a judge’s ruling.
  • Collectors must follow all the rules outlined in the FDCPA.
  • They must refrain from using any means for debt collection that can be considered as harassment, deception, illegal, defamatory, abusive or threatening.
  • Collectors must inform the indebted of the statute of limitations on the debt.


Statute of Limitations on Debt Collection in New York

The statute of limitations for debt collection in New York is 6 years for most consumer debts. Contrary to other states, the time period does not start from when the original debt incurred. In fact, it begins when the last payment is made. For example, if you incurred a debt in 2015 but made the first payment in 2017, then the 6 years of the statute of limitations will be counted from 2017!

This is an incredibly important factor to be well aware of as it has the potential to drag on a particular debt for years and years.



In the state of New York, debt collection is slightly more tricky and therefore provides a window for fraudulent and malicious creditors to exploit the indebted. But, by simply being knowledgable about the

laws and facts regarding debt collection you can easily safeguard yourself as well as your assets.
