Lease purchase

Lease purchase definition


Lease purchase is great if you’re seeking to own the vehicle in the long-term whilst looking to minimise your monthly cost in the short-term. With lease purchase you benefit from lower monthly payments than Hire Purchase (HP), thanks to the option of deferring an agreed amount (known as a Balloon Payment) to the end of your contract. Once your balloon payment has been settled, the car is all yours.

How does lease purchase work?


You’re looking to purchase a Mercedes A-Class valued at £9,500, so you opt for a 48-month lease purchase agreement. You have a £500 deposit, so the amount of credit required is £9,000.  Combined with an APR of 9.8%, the total amount payable will be £10,830. You choose to defer 20% of the amount owed, to the end of your contract as a balloon payment.

You pay 48 monthly payments of £195, followed by a balloon payment of £2,076. Once the final payment has been made and any outstanding fees from the lender have been settled, the car is yours.
