LeaseTrader.com is the most recognized name in car leasing, making us the largest global car lease marketplace.
If your goal is to take over a lease, LeaseTrader is available to assist you in doing exactly that. LeaseTrader is designed to match those who want to get out of their leases with those who want to assume a lease. One of the many services LeaseTrader provides is the verification of the buyer's credit. We verify the buyer’s credit in order for you, the buyer, to know in advance if you meet the minimum credit requirements to take over a lease. To the seller, to only communicate with buyers who qualify. The buyer must pass minimum credit requirements to have direct communication with the seller. That way, you are not wasting your time. These services are what differentiates LeaseTrader from all other leasing companies.
Here at LeaseTrader, we work hard in making the lease takeover process as simple and quick as possible for you. You can search for listings in a matter of minutes. Your LeaseTrader listing provides buyers with a complete list of detailed information about vehicles, including the option to view up to 15 photos. Sellers that provide pictures of their vehicle is a great way to view the car with all its glamor. It allows for buyers to be reassured that your car looks and is in the exact condition of what is being told to them through your listing. Sellers are also able to offer an incentive. If their lease payment is too high, there’s a good chance that after seeing your payment information, a potential buyer will overlook you ad. This is where Sellers offer an incentive to the Buyer so that the car lease payments are competitive with other cars in the market.
Most leasing companies allow for full lease transfers and lease assumptions. For example, Mercedes-Benz Financial, BMW Financial, Mini Financial, Rolls Royce Financial, Lexus Financial, Toyota Financial, Ford Motor Credit, Ally Bank, and US Bank. Some leasing companies will only approve of the transfer by adding the new lessee to your account and listing you as the guarantor. The leasing companies that do this are Nissan Motors, Honda Financial, and VW Credit. There are also companies that may not allow lease transfers, for example, Hyundai/Kia Motors and Chase Bank. Please verify your leasing company's transfer policies or restrictions before listing your vehicle.
Leasing companies generally charge a fee to transfer a lease, which is usually paid by the buyer.
LeaseTrader DOES NOT REVIEW the Availability, details, transfer restrictions for every vehicle listed on the LeaseTrader.com website. We DO NOT GUARANTEE that every vehicle advertised is available due to the first come first serve policy.
