Learn why some state laws may provide more protections to consumers than the federal Truth in Lending Act.
Rental Purchase Agreements, or rent-to-own agreements, are where a consumer agrees to pay a certain sum to rent the item, and the rental company agrees that if the consumer pays the rent for a set period of time, the item will become the property of the consumer with no further payment due. Although rental purchase agreements are not credit sales, they are not considered to be true leases. This video reviews why some courts have been willing to recognize the reality of lease-purchase agreements, and have concluded that rental purchase agreements may be treated as credit sales.
