This bill allows a motor vehicle lease to be terminated upon the death of the lessee and prohibits a dealer or lessor from imposing or assessing any fee for the early termination of a vehicle lease in the event of a lessee's death. The bill prohibits a lease from requiring, in the event of a lessee's death, that the decedent's surviving spouse, family member, guardian, or estate administrator or executor: purchase the leased motor vehicle; buy out the remainder of the lease; or continue to lease the motor vehicle under the original terms of the lease. A surviving spouse, family member, guardian, or estate administrator or executor would need to provide a death certificate, or other proof satisfactory, to the dealer or lessor within 60 days after the death of the decedent.
