Car Leasing FAQs
Our expert teams are always ready to give you the advice and information you need to lease a car, but we’ve also rounded up some of the most frequently asked questions and shared the answers below.
How does a car lease work?
Leasing a vehicle means that you can put down a deposit then make monthly payments for an agreed amount of time, as a personal contract hire or business contract hire agreement. The car is then returned at the end of the contract. This finance plan means that you are able to drive a brand new car without having to make a huge one-off payment to buy it outright. You just need to ensure you stay within the mileage limits and keep the car in good condition.
Is a car lease better than buying?
When considering the biggest car leasing benefits, the first positive is that leasing makes the cost of acquiring the car much more manageable. It also gives you the freedom to exchange the car for another model by the end of the contract. However, you do not own the car and you need to ensure that it is kept in good condition to save any extra costs.
Do car leases include insurance?
Car leasing does not include car insurance, so you will have to arrange that separately.
Who owns the car when car leasing?
The finance company that you make payments to is the legal owner of the car. If you are unable to continue payments during the lease period, you should contact the financier to talk through your options.
Do I need to have an MOT carried out on a leased car?
An MOT is only required on a car after three years. This means that unless your contract exceeds three years (they usually last between two and four), you will not need to obtain an MOT certificate.
