What is a Lease Buyout?

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman


When you lease a new vehicle, you essentially have to return the vehicle at the end of your lease agreement. So then, what is a lease buyout? An auto lease buyout is one of the options you have when you return your vehicle. It basically means you’re purchasing your vehicle at the end of its lease, this is more specifically known as a lease-end buyout.



But, depending on your lease contract, you might also have the ability to purchase your vehicle before the lease expires as well. Today, the Honda of Turnersville finance team will provide you with a more in-depth answer to, “What is a lease buyout?” and touch on the following items:

  • When you should opt for an auto lease buyout
  • Lease-end buyouts/early lease buyouts
  • How does a lease buyout work


When is an Auto Lease Buyout Smart?

Although many Marlton and Vineland shoppers may originally opt for a lease instead of purchasing or financing their vehicle, we understand that sometimes financial situations can change. Whether you want to opt for a lease buyout before the end of your agreement or you’d rather choose a lease-end buyout, there are some important things you should keep in mind. Here’s how you know an auto lease buyout could be the smart decision:

  • You love the vehicle you’re leasing
  • Your leased vehicle has had no major repairs
  • You don’t want to purchase another vehicle at the same price point
  • Your lease buyout provides good interest rates


How Does a Lease Buyout Work?

Not all vehicle lease agreements allow for an early lease buyout. However, note that if you decide to go for this option, there may be penalties and fees that might apply. Other than that, an early lease buyout will be similar to a lease-end buyout. With that being said, how does a lease buyout work? Let’s take a look below:

  • Confirm Information With Your Lease Provider: If you plan on going with a lease buyout, we suggest you work with your lease provider to confirm any important information. Some lease providers may have conditions or fees that may apply.
  • Get Pre-Approved: Similar to purchasing a new vehicle for your Berlin adventures, if you opt for a lease buyout, consider getting pre-approved to quicken the process.
  • Negotiations: Some lease providers allow for negotiations when it comes to lease buyouts. If possible, negotiate with your lease provider to find lease buyout terms that work for your budget.
