Lease Purchase (Hire Purchase with balloon)
Lease Purchase offers lower monthly payments than standard Hire Purchase. At the end of the agreement you have the option to make a final lump sum payment (balloon) to purchase the car in full.
There is a fixed rate of interest but with lower fixed monthly payments because you defer repayment of some of the borrowing. At the end of the agreement you have a number of options including car purchase, re-finance, part-exchange or resale.
Once you have reached an agreement with us to pay an initial deposit, typically between 5–50% of the vehicle price. The deferred balloon element is calculated on the estimated value of the vehicle, which is repaid over an agreed period usually between 1–4 Years, plus a final balloon payment.
