My husband and I traded in our 2017 Malibu for a 2018 Malibu. The dealership talked me into a lease and after 24 hrs I asked to get out of lease from buyers remorse and they took advantage of 2 old people. My husband has Dementia and I signed both if our names because he can't write. They took us big time and I didn't understand what I was getting into. Can a lawyer help us?
Generally speaking you are responsible for what you sign even if you did not read it. Your husband may be able to get out of the lease as he did not sign the agreement and his disability means he does not have capacity to enter into an agreement, but you would remain liable under the lease. Unless the documents provide for a right to cancel you will have a hard time getting out of the lease based upon buyer's remorse.
