Consumer protection and leasing contracts with mileage allowance

Présentation


Whether leasing contracts with mileage allowance are to be regarded as nongratuitous financing assistance within the meaning of § 506 (2) of the German Civil Code (BGB) and whether lessees under such contracts are therefore within the scope of consumer protection provisions is debated in literature and case law. The article by Dr Sebastian Keding and David G. Schäfer examines this question on the basis of recent decisions by courts of instance.
