If a lease contract requires goods to be identified when the lease contract is made,
and the goods suffer casualty without fault of the lessee, the lessor, or the supplier
before delivery, or the goods suffer casualty before risk of loss passes to the lessee
pursuant to the lease agreement or section 1310.26 of the Revised Code, both of the following apply:
(A) If the loss is total, the lease contract is avoided.
(B) If the loss is partial or the goods have so deteriorated as to no longer conform
to the lease contract, the lessee may demand inspection and at his option either treat
the lease contract as avoided or, except in a finance lease that is not a consumer
lease, accept the goods with due allowance from the rent payable for the balance of
the lease term for the deterioration or the deficiency in quantity, but without further
right against the lessor.
