A friend rented appliances from Aaron's and does not need them, has 2. What happens if he does not pay and gives them back?

Asked over 1 year ago - Gaffney, SC

Aaron's requires a six month lease. He has not used these, as his ex left hers there. Still NEW, but Aaron's said he HAS to keep them...as he signed a lease. What repercussions from breaking their lease?

    Answered . The lease itself will usually specify what might happen if a person breaks the lease. Expect the lease agreement to work against the lessor and provide steep penalties for the lessor who breaks the lease. It might be possible to negotiate something with Aarons but, if not, one might try to sell the extra (non-leased) appliances and use the money towards the leased appliances -- perhaps even to purchase the leased appliances. Good luck!
