“Clause required under the Consumer Protection Act.
(Contract of lease with guaranteed residual value entered into by an itinerant merchant)
The merchant must obtain permission of the court before recovering possession of leased goods where the consumer in default has paid at least one-half or more of his maximum obligation.
The consumer may purchase leased goods at all times under the conditions fixed by the Act; to that end, he may require a statement of account.
The consumer’s residual value exigible is limited by the Act.
