16a-1-107. (UCCC) Waiver; agreement to forego rights; settlement of claims. (1) Except as otherwise provided in K.S.A. 16a-1-101 through 16a-9-102, a consumer may not waive or agree to forego rights or benefits under such sections of this act.

(2) A claim by a consumer against a creditor for an excess charge, other violation of K.S.A. 16a-1-101 through 16a-9-102, or civil penalty, or a claim against a consumer for default or breach of a duty imposed by such sections of this act, if disputed in good faith, may be settled by agreement.

(3) A claim, whether or not disputed, against a consumer may be settled for less value than the amount claimed.

(4) A settlement in which the consumer waives or agrees to forego rights or benefits under K.S.A. 16a-1-101 through 16a-9-102 is invalid if the court as a matter of law finds the settlement to have been unconscionable at the time it was made. The competence of the consumer, any deception or coercion practiced upon him, the nature and extent of the legal advice received by him, and the value of the consideration are relevant to the issue of unconscionability.
