Does my company support transfers?
Can I back out once I post my car?
 
Yes, you have the final say up until you sign the lease transfer documentation provided by your leasing company. *Note Bank fees as well as LeaseTrader fees are non-refundable.
How long does it take?
 
From the time the transfer starts, and depending on who the leasing company is, the transfer process can take between 3 days (BMW Financial Services) to as long as six weeks (Ally Bank) for the leasing company to complete the transfer paperwork. This is mainly due to paperwork and mail going back and forth between buyer, seller and the leasing company. LeaseTrader offers services to expedite the lease transfer.
What are the costs to get out? - Advertising Fees
 
Advertising of your vehicle: from $99.95
Ad runs until the vehicle sells or transfers. Discounted listing packages available from time to time upon request, contact our listing department for more information.

LeaseTrader commission:*$149.95 (after $100 instant rebate)
In addition to your subscription fee, LeaseTrader charges the Seller a $249.95 commission upon the initiation of the lease transfer.
* LeaseTrader offers the seller an Instant Commission Rebate of $100.00 (One Hundred Dollar) to be applied automatically once the commission is paid on or before the initiation of the lease transfer process.

Bank Transfer fee: Some leasing companies charge the Buyer (the person that takes over the lease) a transfer fee to process the car lease transfer paperwork. This fee varies from $0 to $600 and is payable directly to the Leasing Company (e.g. Mercedes Benz Credit).

Note: Failure to pay the commission at the initiation of the lease transfer process will result in forfeiting any and all discounts and rebates offered by LeaseTrader.
What if the interested person is in a different state?
 
A great number of transfers are between people in different states. We work with third party inspection companies and with a national transportation company that can deliver your vehicle throughout the US. You can negotiate with the person taking over the auto lease as to who pays any costs involved. Check out our Service Partners for more details.

What role does my financing company play?
 
Independent of our pre-screening process, all auto lease transfers require the approval of the leasing company involved in each particular lease (e.g. Wells Fargo Finance). Most Finance Companies charge separate fees in connection with transferring a lease. The Buyer taking over your auto lease typically pays these fees. These fees range from $0- $600.00.
What documentation do I need to sign?
 
The paperwork provided by LeaseTrader and your leasing company. From the time a suitable candidate is found, it could take as long as three weeks to process the transfer paperwork. This is mainly due to mail going back and forth.
