Terminate Your Lease Saint Joseph MO
Terminate Your Lease
There seems to be a common misconception that, to get out of a lease, one simply returns the car, pays some kind of penalty fee, and it's all over. Not true. This is not the way it works, unfortunately. The actual cost of early lease termination can be thousands of dollars, depending on how much of the lease remains.
Actually, you have a number of possible options for getting out of your lease, some of which will be better for you than the others. You're looking for the option that will save you the most money and trouble, and protect your credit rating.
Lease transfer is the best way
One your best options may be to transfer your lease to someone would like to pick it up and take it off your hands — a lease assumption. There are significant advantages for this method. It is low cost (no penalties, no payoffs, but transfer fees), it is relatively easy, and it does not affect your credit score.
There's a whole set of potential buyers out there who are looking for short-term leases without going through dealers and the associated extra costs.
However, to get our of your lease using this method, you need to follow the correct process and check to see if your lease company allows it. You can't simply let someone take over your lease without the lease company's knowledge and involvement. The new "lessee" must get approved and sign new lease papers.
