Current as of: 2009
(a) During the period of a consumer lease, the following rules apply:
(1) A person that receives a payment in money from a lessee under a consumer lease shall furnish the lessee a written receipt for the payment.
(2) If a lessee so requests in a record, the holder, within two weeks after receiving the request, shall send to the lessee in a record, as requested, a statement of:
(A) The dates and amounts of the periodic payments that have been received by holders of the lease and the total amount of the remaining periodic payments;
(B) The lessee's total obligation due to satisfy the lease if terminated at a specified date before expiration, and a statement that the amount so due will be reduced by the realized value of the goods, if that is the case; and
(C) If the lease provides for a purchase option that may be exercised at the lessee's request, the purchase option price at the date specified in the request.
(3) In a statement under subdivision (2) of this subsection, an amount that is estimated must be so identified.
(4) A holder may not charge the lessee for furnishing one statement under each subparagraph of subdivision (2) of this subsection in each twelve-month period, but may charge a fee not to exceed five dollars for furnishing each additional statement during the same period.
(b) A holder of a lease for computer or related equipment, not more than one hundred twenty days and not less than thirty days prior to the expiration date of the lease, shall provide written notice, at no cost to the lessee, informing the lessee of the lease expiration date and the lessee's rights and obligations upon expiration of the lease and, if the lease provides for a purchase option for such computer or related equipment that may be exercised at the lessee's request, the purchase option price for such computer or related equipment as of the lease expiration date. For the purposes of this subsection, "computer" means a programmable, electronic device capable of accepting and processing data.
(c) A holder, within two weeks after the lessee has discharged all of the lessee's obligations under the consumer lease, shall send to the lessee at the lessee's last known address a copy of the lease marked "satisfied", "paid in full" or similar term, or a separate record indicating satisfaction of the lease. The record of satisfaction does not release the lessee from liability under the lease for acts or events discovered by the holder after sending the record.
