Answer: This is a question of contract law (re the original loan agreement); the words in the contract or other information provided by the lender when a loan agreement is made (online or in person). If the contract specifies time limits for pre-payment-refunds, this is binding on the lender. In case of a breach/violation by the lender the Arizona Attorney General has the authority to bring actions alleging violations of the state and federal consumer protection laws, for example, if a refund is wrongfully denied or withheld for a commercially unreasonable length of time, which may or may not be the same day as when the borrower cancelled the agreement. The Arizona Attorney General website addresses various consumer-related issues and has links for obtaining assistance for misconduct by a business, including Predatory Lending. The Arizona Attorney General website also has links to valuable federal resources (internet transactions are often governed by federal law.) This website has a wealth of information regarding consumer loans, contracts; see "Unfair Sales Practices and Consumer Fraud"  To find out how the law applies to your specific situation, you may want to consult with an attorney directly.
