Last month, Michigan enacted HB 5892, which makes several amendments to the state’s Rental-Purchase Agreement Act. Effective January 3, 2013, a lessor is prohibited from requiring numerous fees, including (i) any processing fee, (ii) a periodic payment or late fee for a rental period beginning after the lessee has returned or surrendered the leased property to the lessor or the lessor’s agent, and (iii) any charge or fee for reinstatement of the rental-purchase agreement in addition to or in excess of those expressly permitted by the Act. The bill also revised the conditions under which a lessee who fails to make timely periodic payments may reinstate a rental-purchase agreement without losing any rights or options. The bill included a revised sample rental-purchase agreement form to reflect the enacted changes.
