My dad passed away on June 3. He had a leased car and when I called the finance company, they said I could either put it in my name and keep making the lease payment or have them pick it up. I had them pick it up. I thought I was returning it, but apparently I voluntarily surrendered the car.
Now, they keep sending my dad statements. I don’t know what to do.
The finance company may have a claim against your father’s estate, but not against you. If a law firm is handling your dad’s estate, refer the finance company to them.
For more information about getting out of a lease, see the Bankrate story ”
Breaking a car lease gets easier.”
