Customer Question
Last evening I signed...

Last evening I signed the paperwork for a lease vehicle. I have not made any down payment nor have I taken possession of the vehicle. I live in Massachusetts. After careful consideration I realized that I was highly pressured to sign these papers, and that It is not a good option for me at this time.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

It is a 2016 Altima. The state is Massachusetts

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

It was very late yesterday afternoon, and today is Sunday. I hope that they have been unable to file the paperwork as yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Only that it was a very high pressure situation, and that I was told that because I put 5000 down on the vehicle that I presently own which was bought used that I would not have to pay any more to renegotiate the lease in three years at the same price $129.00 per month. After having time to consider this, I believe that as a new car I would be losing about $5000. equity after driving it off the lot.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
