Where to Start When Assuming a Lease

Lease 101

Where to Start

Sometimes you will find lease assumptions in your local newspaper, through a friend, or perhaps at work. If you were to venture on-line, we would of course recommend visiting Swapalease.com, which is the largest on-line marketplace for vehicle lease assumptions. Swapalease.com specializes in connecting people who want to get out of a car lease with people who want to assume one.

The Web site (and others like it) allows you to search by year, make, model, months remaining, monthly payment, and other criteria. You can also do geographic searches to locate a vehicle in your particular area if that is important to you.

Once you have found a vehicle you are interested in, you should be able to contact the Seller to ask questions and get a general sense for the condition of the vehicle. Later in this section we will suggest some questions you should consider asking a lease seller.
