A court may also take this opportunity to declare that a rental company does not have the right to exercise certain rights with respect to the credit agreement or a related transaction, as explained below.

Rental is if a dealer gives or agrees to own goods (e.g.B. cars, power tools and clothing for special occasions) as well as the right to use them, subject to the terms of the rental agreement, which covers the duration of the rental of the goods. The merchant remains the owner of the goods and you do not have the right or option to purchase them. If you rent goods from a reseller, you can enter into a contract that is governed by many laws. The company could be asked to sign two contracts with two different companies, a lease with a leasing company and a revenue-generating services contract with a printing company. The contracts would be of the same duration, so they would apparently be cancelled.
But after a few payments of the revenues from the service contract, the advertising/printing company went bankrupt. Meanwhile, the leasing company continues to charge the rents as part of the lease agreement and suddenly claims that the advertising or printing contract was a totally separate agreement and not a part of the entire business. A lease is an example of a «mixed contract» under the Consumer Rights Act 2015; You have rights against a contractor if the property rented to you does not meet your expectations, perhaps because it is defective or uncertain and if a rental service provided by a merchant is below the norm. These are generally referred to as your «legal rights». You also have recourse against a merchant if your rights are not fulfilled. It appears that many small UK businesses have been offered the «possibility» of renting electronic devices such as screens or printers, as the rental costs are offset by the revenue generated by the use of the devices (e.g. B to display advertisements or provide printing services). If you sign a rental agreement because a trader has misled you or because a trader has applied an aggressive practice, the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 also gives you the right to compensation: the right to enter into the contract, the right to a discount and the right to damages. For more information, see the guide «Misleading and Aggressive Practices: Rights of Recourse». If an individual entrepreneur enters into a lease agreement with another company in the United Kingdom, the contract is likely subject to the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 («CCA») and certain provisions of the CCA. However, one of the complexities associated with regulated leases is that some of the CCA rules put in place in 2010 do not apply to them, which could pose a problem for some rental companies and brokers.
Short-term rental agreements (less than three months) – for example, renting a suit for a wedding or a dress for a prom – are not governed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, but the merchant should nevertheless provide you with a written agreement as well as the rental terms. Long-term leases – for example, the lease of a motor vehicle for more than three months – are agreements governed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. . .
