Southampton, NY asked in Consumer Law and Contracts for New York

Q: if I signed a retail motor vehicle lease agreement in NY and car was shipped to me in NY does this fall under NY law?

Car was shipped to NY from dealer in Texas before I signed all papers and before dealer signed any papers and therefore the lease was never effectuated and I believe should be void. The transporting of this expensive car prior to a binding agreement was a form of entrapment. Noticed the dealer hours after the car was off loaded and spoke to all concerned the next day and sent correspondence about NY law and now also see most of NY law is backed up by the Senante.

A: Yes. If the contract was signed in New York, in particular with a New York-based business, then it is almost definitely controlled by New York laws... assuming there's no arbitration agreement or Choice of Laws Clause in the contract.

Good luck with your case!
