What are my rights as a consumer for a leased vehicle?

1 Answers. Asked on Feb 08th, 2017 on Consumer Law - Florida
More details to this question:
My fiance and I leased 2 vehicles on 12/31/2016. Yesterday we received a letter dated for 1/30/2017 that the financing was not approved, but they already took my down payments and paid off my vehicle trade in. I have yet to be contacted by the dealership, but I would like to know my rights before I do. Specifically, does the dealership have to uphold the financing if we already signed a contract? What legal grounds do I have to fight this?

YOu need to retain a lawyer at this point  - you are likely running into a Yo-Yo scam and the critical time to hire a lawyer is the moment something goes wrong where you can t just undo the contract. It may cost you some money out of pocket but it will save you lots of hassle and grief.

All responses are NOT to be considered legal advice nor to be relied upon in any as such nor to establish any form of attorney/client relationship.

Consumer Law
Most--but not all--businesses act ethically and honestly. If a company fails to honor a product's warranty, or is violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or refuses to replace a defective product under state lemon laws, you may need a strong advocate on your side. An attorney whose practice focuses on consumer law can work tirelessly to see that you are treated fairly and afforded all of the consumer rights and protections afforded to you under state and federal laws.
