Hi
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.

Have you said you wish to return the car?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No I just informed them and the send me a letter with the different options...so I can either continue with lease, buy it or end lease early with paying 6000 and a bit to get out of it
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
There is no estate left in My partners name so I guess the will just take the car?!?

They are not correct when they say that you "slip into his place" - that is nonsense - you are not on the agreement and you certainly do not inherit the arrangement.

If you do not wish to keep the car then you can simply ask them to collect it - and since there are no assets in the Estate there are no funds they can try and claim.

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
