Leasing personal vehicle to friend/colleagues

One of my friends has inquired to lease my Range Rover Sport for a period of four months.

I will have another car in the driveway shortly, so this will not be a problem, but he will be located down in FL (shipping car) for the 4 month stint.

Is there anything I should seriously look into when making this agreement?

With properly written contracts I don't see any grave issues.

All liability and maintenance gets transferred over to Lessee since the car has no warrantee, and all insurance/etc. gets transferred over as well. If the transmission blows, I am not responsible for fix.

Does anyone have a fair idea on how to quote leasing rates for a 2007 Range Rover Sport lux pkg, with 1200 miles a month?

Anything I should seriously avoid? I don't mind lending him a helping hand, as long as I don't lose money on depreciation/wear & tear.

Thanks...

If your tranny breaks, the leasee is not responsible for the fix, you are...just like if I was to rent a car from Hertz, if it breaks and the problem wasn't driver induced, I would just return it and get another car. So if your friend is nuts enough to accept your offer, then I say go for it.

LOL...let me understand this correctly

You want to transfer your lease to a friend in florida for 4 months...then transfer the lease back to you? good luck explaining that to LLFG. when you transfer over a lease to a friend, he will be paying the same payment you are, there are no recalculations done.

Tell your buddy to just go into a dealership and lease a new one and hope he finds someone to transfer it over to in 4 months.

btw, the transfer process takes anywhere from 20-30 days so you lost 2 months right there

I'm gonna assume that the car is not on lease to the OP...should be paid for, unless he's in a 5 year lease

^yes he can with proper documentation.

Before you went at the assumption of laughing with that attack, I didn't state anywhere that I was leasing my vehicle (thank you on the 5 year comment, good logic).



It's owned out right.

TY for advice.

Why would you do this? There are more risks to your friendship than the car.

If you know him well enough, what's the problem? You're getting paid and life's good.

The fact you have a Range Rover Sport and multiple vehicles tells me you probably don't need the money, or could care less about it. I'm thinking the amount he'd pay you is what, ~$3-4K? Seriously, don't do it. You don't need the money, and the risks far outweigh the reward. Tell your friend to rent a car from a business. Both sides will be covered then. You don't want something to happen to your Rover and have a money dispute with a friend.

Touche guys. Thank you for the advice. I didn't want to put him in the position of being responsible for repairs or dealing with insurance if there was an accident/value loss after a repair, so I'm helping him locate a vehicle on swap-a-lease. Car will be newer, under warranty, and owned under proper contract. Wasn't intended for profit, just for a helping hand because it is very important for these next for months with television exposure. Would have been a good look. If he leases a Rover, least I can do is give him my wheels since we'll all be in winter mode.

TY e90 post

Is this friend considered family? If so I wouldn't do it. It could ruin that bond you have.
