WVC 46 B- 4 - 1 §46B-4-1. Extortionate conduct in rent-to-own transaction.

If the court finds as a matter of fact that it was the understanding of the dealer and the consumer at the time a rental agreement for a rent-to-own transaction was made that delay in making a payment could result in the use of violence or other criminal means to cause harm to the person, reputation or property of any person, the agreement of the extension of credit is unenforceable through civil judicial process against the dealer and the consumer, at his or her option, may rescind the agreement and retain the goods without any obligation to pay for them.

Note: WV Code updated with legislation passed through the 2013 1st Special Session
