The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that the leasing company can do this only if the contract upon which the lease is based specifically states that they can and will withhold registration renewal if payment is behind. This is a contract issue as much as anything else. As such, this is an issue that should be specifically mentioned in the contract. If it is not, then there is a very viable legal argument that they cannot withhold registration.
