In a recent decision, the Third Circuit took sides in a split between U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal over what action borrowers must take to exercise their right to rescind a loan under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). It ruled that borrowers need only send lenders valid notice within the time allowed under the statute in order to rescind a loan agreement.
