what happens if you rent something from a lease to own like Aarons or rentway and u leave state ?
If you do not pay for or return the property, that constitutes theft. You can definitely be arrested and depending on the value of the property, could face felony charges.

you won't be arrested, but you are in breach of the contract that you signed with aarons in that you did not inform them of your new address with their furniture (remember, you are renting to own...you don't own it yet). smart move is to contact them as soon as possible. this will only get worse and this is going to blemish your credit. either try to work out a payment plan with them or make arrangements to return the furniture. maybe they will let you return it to an Aarons that's closer to you now. the fact that you are out of state is not their problem though...it's yours.

It will depend on your contract. But generally speaking, you are considered to have paid rent.

Haven't they been contacting you? Did you have your mail forwarded? Most likely, they are looking for you and their furniture to repo it. Is there an Aarons or wherever you rented this stuff from in your city or state? I am not sure if you would be arrested, but I am sure they would sue for the cost of the stuff.
