  • I agree,You should be able to return the furniture and cancel the contract. Once that is done they have no reason to call your referrences. I wish the best in solving your issue..

  • Sorry for your problem. The best way to solve the rent to own problem is to return the furniture and cancel the agreement. So long as they have an agreement in force they have rights that you will likely find annoying. Remember the old (but true) joke that verbal contracts aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. They can demand timely payment.

    Your contract should permit cancellation with notice and return of the items and I strongly recommend that you do so. Look for used furniture at your local Goodwill or ReStore to tide you over. In the long run that will also cost you much less.

    Good Luck!
