Credit Access Business

Credit Access Business

The Baytown City Council passed the Credit Access Business Ordinance in 2014, as a way to reduce abusive and predatory lending practices.  Credit access businesses or CABs provide payday and auto title loans to consumers.  CABs that operate within the city limits of Baytown must be registered with the City of Baytown, and unless already grandfathered (CAB was operational prior to June 1, 2014) must be located at least 5,000 feet away from any other lot containing a CAB.  For a complete list of existing CABs in the city limits of Baytown, please click here.

The Baytown City Clerk's Office administers the Credit Access Business Ordinance.  This CAB website includes City regulations, business registration information and consumer complaint forms; for more information regarding any of these items, please contact the City Clerk's Office at 281-420-6504.
