What Protections Does Scra Provide Servicemembers Who Have Automobile Leases?

The SCRA creates a new protection to allow a member to terminate an automobile lease that the member signed either before or during active duty if the member meets certain conditions.  Generally, a reserve or guard member must, after entering the lease, be called to active duty service for at least 180 days or more.  An active duty member must, after entering the lease, either (a) receive military orders for a permanent change of station either (i) from the continental United States (CONUS) to outside CONUS or (ii) from a state outside CONUS to any location outside that state OR (b) deploy for 180 days or more.
