Can You Take Over a Lease?

Signing Finance Documents for Car

Do you like the idea of leasing a new vehicle, but aren’t sure that you want to commit to a full lease? If so, a lease takeover could be the right choice for you. When you take over a car lease, you’ll take on the remainder of a driver’s lease. If you’re just looking for a car to cruise around Portland, this could be a good temporary solution. However, just like a traditional car lease, there are things to consider before taking over a lease. Below, you can learn more about the basics, as well as the pros and cons, of a car lease takeover.



How Does a Car Lease Takeover Work?

Taking over a lease works similarly to leasing a new vehicle because you’re not buying the vehicle. You’re paying for the depreciation of the car while it’s in your possession. With a car lease, you’re typically restricted to around 1,000 miles a month, but with a lease takeover, this figure depends on the previous driver and the terms of their lease. When the lease is over, you can return the car as you would with a regular lease.

Car Lease Takeover Pros & Cons

There are benefits and drawbacks to taking over a car lease, as there are with any car buying or leasing option. Check out some of the pros and cons of a car lease takeover below to help you decide if its the right choice for you:


  • No down payment
  • No new-car upfront depreciation and other costs
  • Likely still under warranty
  • Possible cash incentives from the original lease


  • Transfer fees
  • You inherit the monthly payment as it is
  • Possible wear and tear from the previous owner
  • Mileage restrictions

Again, if you’re looking for a car to scoot around Sherwood in, a lease takeover could be a quick and easy way to get what you need for less. Our finance team can shed more light on the pros and cons of a lease takeover, and help you decide your best course of action based on your budget and driving goals.
