Can a Dealership change the lease agreement?
2 attorney answers
I agree with the prior answer. Basic contract law says a valid agreement is binding and any attempt to change that agreement by one party will not stand unless the other party to the contract agrees to those changes which they need not do. I also agree that there are consumer protection issues in play here so I will re-post this under that area of law so you get additional responses.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
If you have a binding agreement, it is binding and an offer to change the agreement is just that, an offer, which can be accepted or rejected AND which must be supported by new consideration. Before signing anything you should consult an attorney and have them review the contract. The behavior described is questionable and may violate state and federal consumer laws.
The answer above is only a general statement of the law and not intended as legal advice. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific legal advice. It is not meant to create an attorney-client relationship. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
