Is It Easier to Lease a Car with Bad Credit Than Good Credit?

Because a new car lease requires a credit check, it’s usually easier to lease with good credit. It results in lower monthly payments and a lower security deposit. Bad credit can require a higher deposit and higher monthly payments. However, you’ll still have to pay less than if you take out a car loan to buy a car.

Tips for Lower Lease Payments with Bad Credit

You may have bad credit, but Jericho drivers can still get a great lease deal. Follow a few simple tips:

  • Find a car within your budget to lease. Contact us to find out just how much you’ll have to pay on a monthly basis.
  • Check your credit score before you apply for a lease. That way you can have a better idea of your overall financial situation.
  • Make a larger down payment. If you prepay for the first few months, you may be able to get better lease terms.
  • Bring several months of pay stubs as proof of income. That way we know you can afford the lease you’re looking for.
