Section 2A-214A: Limitation on Exclusion or Modification of Warranties

Section 2A-214A. (1) The provisions of section 2A-214 shall not apply to the extent provided in this section.

(2) Any language, oral or written, in a consumer lease, which attempts to exclude or modify any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or to exclude or modify the lessee's remedies for breach of those warranties, shall be unenforceable.

(3) Any language, oral or written, in a consumer lease, which attempts to limit or modify the lessee's remedies for breach of a manufacturer's express warranties, shall be unenforceable, unless such manufacturer maintains facilities within the commonwealth sufficient to provide reasonable and expeditious performance of the warranty obligations.

(4) Any language, oral or written, in a lease which attempts to exclude or modify any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or to exclude or modify remedies for breach of those warranties, shall be unenforceable with respect to injury to the person. This subsection does not affect the validity under other law of an agreement between a lessor or supplier and a lessee that is an organization (see Section 1-201(28)), allocating, as between them, the risk of damages from or providing indemnity for breaches of those warranties with respect to injury to the person.

(5) The provisions of this section may not be disclaimed or waived by agreement.
