Car Lease Agreements

Why Vehicle Leasing Is Not The Same Thing As Financing

Accurately interpreting your car or truck lease agreement conditions and definitions can seldom be described as a straightforward accomplishment, especially by some of us who like a more vernacular English. For better understanding, leasing is not buying. In fact, it’s similar to renting. As such, the most essential conditions are in regards to responsibility, ownership, and liability. These include leased vehicle insurance, wear and tear, and lease return or extension.

Obligations for Leased Car Insurance

Getting insurance on a leased vehicle is no different than getting insurance on any other vehicle.

Normal Wear & Tear vs Excess Wear & Tear

A normal vehicle lease agreement most likely clarifies exactly what is designated as excessive vehicle wear and tear.

Now, if that makes you uneasy, then make sure to inquire about additional Insurance to take life’s uncertainties out of the thought process.

extending or returning your car lease

Lease Extension or Return

We recommend approaching the company you leased from leading up to the end of the contract and confirm your end of lease obligations. In addition to completing a lease return inspection, you might also want to request a lease extension or an auto lease buyout. One allows you to extend your lease for an additional period of time, while the other permits you to buy your leased car.
