Under current law, a consumer credit transaction that is entered into for
personal, family, or household purposes, as well as certain consumer leases, are
generally subject to the Wisconsin Consumer Act (consumer act). The consumer act
grants consumers certain rights and remedies and contains notice and disclosure
requirements and prohibitions relating to consumer credit transactions.
This bill creates requirements that specifically apply to rental-purchase
agreements, imposes requirements on rental-purchase companies, and exempts
rental-purchase companies and rental-purchase agreements from the scope of the
consumer act and from provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code relating to
security interests. A "rental-purchase agreement" is an agreement between a
rental-purchase company and a lessee for the use of rental property if: 1) the rental
property is to be used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes; 2) the
agreement has an initial term of four months or less and is renewable with each
payment after the initial term; 3) the agreement does not obligate the lessee to renew
the agreement beyond the initial term; and 4) the agreement permits the lessee to
acquire ownership of the rental property.
