Renter (including all “co-renters”) agrees to make an Initial Rental Payment in the amount listed in  Box 1  which pays for the use of the Merchandise until expiration of the Initial Rental Period listed in Box 2 and shall continue to make Monthly Rental Payments as listed in Box 3 on or before the date due beginning with the expiration of the Initial Rental Period. 

MINIMUM RENTAL PERIOD: The Renter is required to make the Minimum Number of Rental Payments in Box 4 for the total amount shown in Box 5 which includes the Initial Rental Payment. If the Renter returns the merchandise before the expiration of the Minimum Rental Period, the Renter must still pay the Minimum Number of Rental Payments.


OPTION 1: Cancel this Agreement by returning the Merchandise to a Summerhays Music location listed above in accordance with the terms in the paragraph below entitled “Termination by the Renter.” Schools, Music teachers and other third parties shall not be responsible for the return of the Merchandise.  Failure to return the merchandise automatically initiates the monthly rental option. (see Option #2).

OPTION 2: Continue Monthly Rental Payments, each of which entitles the Renter to the use of the Merchandise for one month and renews automatically until the return of the Merchandise.  Monthly Rental Payments are due on or before the date in Box 6.

TERMINATION BY THE RENTER: Renter may terminate this Agreement at any time after paying the rent due for the Minimum Rental Payment Period by returning the Merchandise in the same condition as at the time of rental, fair wear and tear excepted, to the Summerhays Music location listed above, and by payment of all additional (beyond the Minimum Rental Payments) Monthly Rental Payments and other charges due through the date of return.  Minimum Rental Payments are due at the time of return.  Rent due beyond the Minimum Rental Payments will accumulate until the Merchandise is received at Summerhays Music. Schools, Music teachers and other third parties shall not be responsible for the return of the Merchandise.

TERMINATION BY THE OWNER: The Owner (Summerhays Music) can terminate this Agreement at its option and without notice to the Renter should the Renter fail to make any rental payment on the date due, or should the Renter breach any agreement, condition or representation of this Agreement and/or if the Owner deems itself insecure as to the safety, condition or location of the Merchandise.  Upon termination, Renter agrees to deliver the Merchandise to Owner in the same condition as when rented, fair wear and tear excepted, and Renter shall remain liable for all payments and charges due at the time the Merchandise is returned and for the full performance of this Agreement.

REINSTATEMENT: If you fail to make a timely rental payment under this Agreement, you may reinstate this Agreement without losing any rights or options, by paying within five days of the renewal date: (1) all missed rental payments; (2) reasonable costs of pickup and re-delivery; (3) applicable late fees; and (4) reinstatement costs of $25.00. If you return the Merchandise to us within the five-day reinstatement period, and if you have paid less than 2/3 of the total purchase price, you may reinstate this Agreement within 45 days of the return of the merchandise by paying the payments, costs and fees listed above.  If you return the Merchandise to us within the five-day reinstatement period, and if you have paid more than 2/3 of the total purchase price, you may reinstate this Agreement within 90 days of the return of the Merchandise by paying the payments, costs and fees listed above. Upon reinstatement, we will provide you with the Merchandise if available, or substitute merchandise of comparable quality and condition.  Your right to reinstatement does not prevent us from attempting to repossess the Merchandise during the reinstatement period, but such a repossession does not affect your right to reinstate.


OPTION 1: Pay the cash price plus sales tax less any payments made, on or before the expiration of the Initial Rental Period. 

OPTION 2:  Make the number of payments listed in Box 7 beginning with the expiration of the Initial Rental Period.  The Total Sales Price listed in Box 8 is the Cash Price plus sales tax and interest at the annual percentage rate in Box 9.  In addition late fees, charges for pickup, collection or reinstatement must be paid.  If your payments are late, you will bay more interest resulting in a greater number of payments; if your payments are early, you will pay less interest, resulting in a fewer number of payments.

TRADE UP OPTIONS:  Must be exercised at the time you return your rental instrument. Equity accumulated from more than one instrument may not be combined to purchase a single instrument.

Band Instruments: Up to 12 months of the principle or equity accumulated toward the purchase of a student level instrument may be applied toward the purchase, of select professional instruments of the same type: i.e. flute equity toward an upgraded flute.  String Instruments:  In a continuous rental program for a single student of a string instrument which is smaller than full-sized, one-half of all rental payments made, (less sales tax) may be credited toward the purchase price of a FULL-SIZED  instrument of the same type: i.e. violin for violin etc.

ESTIMATE: Payments made earlier than the scheduled due date will reduce, and payments made later will increase, the actual number of payments necessary to buy the Merchandise.  These adjustments will be made at the end of the payment schedule to reduce or increase your total number of payments.  There is no penalty for early payoff. The balance will be calculated using simple interest calculations. The parties acknowledge that if there is a clerical error in disclosing the payment schedule, the number and sum of payments may be adjusted to reflect the correct Cash Price, tax and interest.

Title and unrestricted right of repossession of the merchandise shall remain with Summerhays Music Center. Renter may not assign the contract or any interest without prior written authorization from Summerhays Music Center.

Renter shall be responsible for all damages to the merchandise other than reasonable wear and tear. Marks & scratches caused by the use of guitar picks are not reasonable wear and tear. Removal of any stickers placed on merchandise, including the case, will be charged at minimum repair shop hourly rates.

Warranties shall be limited on all merchandise to those express warranties, if any, which are provided by the manufacturer. Warranty work must be done at the Summerhays Music Center Repair Shop located at 5450 S. Green Street, Murray, Utah or 1006 S. State St., Orem, Utah. Shipping costs to and from Summerhays Music Center are the responsibility of the renter.

If the renter should default in any of the obligations hereunder, or if the owner should deem itself insecure with respect to the contractual obligations hereunder, the entire value of the merchandise, plus all outstanding rent and charges, at the option of the owner, and without notice to the renter, shall immediately become due and payable, and without process of law and shall bear interest at 18% APR. Such termination shall not release renter from the payment of any damages sustained by owner as provided herein. The remedy of repossession shall be cumulative with any other remedies the owner may have against the renter as a matter of law. Renter hereby directs any third party having custody or possession of the merchandise, including schools, to deliver the merchandise to the owner on demand and agrees to hold owner and the said third parties, school officials and teachers harmless for such delivery. In the event the merchandise is repossessed by the owner, renter shall, in addition to cost of collection and instrument damage, pay all amounts due under the contract from the date thereof until recovery of the merchandise by the owner. Renter has no right to sell, mortgage, pawn, pledge, encumber, or dispose of said property or to move said property from the address of the renter on the renters credit statement. To do so is a breach of this agreement and renter shall be liable under applicable state law. If the merchandise is removed from the state where rented, renter is liable to owner for the total value of the merchandise as listed on the front of this contract plus all outstanding rent charges. Should renter fail to make timely payments, renter authorizes Summerhays Music to charge all past due rent or other charges to renters credit card.

Legal remedies and collection costs
Renter agrees to pay all costs and expenses incurred in collection including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees, $25.00 per hour for employee time, expenses, service and filing fees, court costs, interest at the rate of 18% on all rental payments due on the date of return and any other reasonable expenses incurred.

Performance of this contract is hereby deemed to take place at the corporate offices of Summerhays Music Center located at 5450 Green Street, Murray, Utah 84123. That performance is to be reflected by acceptance of the contract by corporate officers of Summerhays Music Center and receipt of all rental payments. Suit to enforce the provisions of this agreement may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction located in Salt Lake County, Utah County, Utah or Uintah County, Wyoming. Any judgment rendered hereon shall bear interest at the annual percentage rate of 18%. This contract shall be construed according to the laws of the state of Utah. Seller reports paying records to credit bureaus and other credit lenders.

Use of Collateral
Renter represents and warrants that the merchandise rented hereunder is rented for personal, family and household use, and not for professional use.
Oral Statements & Performance

There are no understandings, agreements, or representations, express or implied, written or oral, not specified in this contract in the terms hereof, and this contract contains the entire agreement of the parties and is binding on both parties. If owner waives any default by renter or owner remedies any of renter’s defaults, such action will not operate as a waiver of the default remedied or of any earlier or later defaults. Time is of the essence in this agreement. Coupons or monthly statements are not provided to the customer by the owner and said coupons or statements in no way alter the terms of the contract.

Disputes and Returned Checks
There will be a $20.00 service charge on all returned checks. Disputed balances must be discussed directly with the Owner's Credit Manager. Renter agrees and understands that any endorsement on a check containing the phrase “payment in full” or similar language is not binding on Owner, without an express written agreement signed by the Owner or Owner's Credit Manager.

Application of Payments
Payments will be applied first to returned check charges, late fees and any other charges due and then to sales tax and rental payments. Payments are applied to past due payments first, then current payments. In determining payoff balances, interest is calculated on a 360 day year.
