1.4.8 Leases

UCC Article 2 applies to sales, and UCC Article 2A applies to leases. Every state except Louisiana has adopted Article 2A.

Most courts and the FTC hold that a consumer lessee can utilize the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act to remedy a breach of warranty.147 Whether state lemon laws apply to leased vehicles varies by state and is described in §§ 14.2.3.4 and 21.2.4, infra. UDAP statutes generally apply to personal property leases, as do claims based in strict liability and negligence.148

A detailed discussion of warranty law in lease transactions is found in Chapter 21, infra.
