Can You Take Over a Lease?

Lease Agreement

If you’re looking for a short-term car ownership solution, a lease takeover could be just the thing. A car lease takeover lets you assume the remainder of another driver’s lease, a good temporary solution if you just want a vehicle to drive around Portland, OR for a few months. But there are a few things you should consider before making that decision. Read on for more lease takeover information and reach out to the finance team at Dick Hannah Jeep about takeover deal options.

How Does a Car Lease Takeover Work? 

A lease takeover works much like a lease on a new car in that you’re not buying the vehicle outright. It allows you to drive a new vehicle for a certain amount of miles, or time. How long? That will depend largely on how much the previous driver used it. Monthly lease payments are determined by the estimated depreciation of the vehicle at the end of the lease term, plus the interest rate. Once the lease is up, simply return the vehicle to your local Longview dealership or you can buy it outright. 

Car Lease Takeover Pros & Cons

As you might expect, there are benefits and drawbacks to taking over a car lease. Contemplate the following pros and cons as you contemplate how a lease takeover might work 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

If you’re looking for something temporary for your Battle Ground commutes and weekend travels, then a car lease takeover can save you money. However, even though you don’t pay initial costs upfront, you might end up paying other fees later on.
