Lowdown on Car Leasing in the Big Apple (New York) in 2023

A used car can be leased in New York, meaning that you can borrow a pre-owned vehicle from your local car dealer without the long term commitment of buying.  All you have to do is find a used car that you love, and then head to the dealers service center to discuss a lease plan.

Leasing a car in 2023 might be better economically than any other time. I the off-lease prices are rising now, they may continue that trend making cars more expensive.  If you are considering a lease and have bad credit, find out if you can lease a car with bad credit.

If you need to know whether you need to pay taxes on a leased car then here is your answer. The total sales tax due must be paid by and collected from the lessee on the date the first lease payment is due or the date of the vehicle is registered with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), whichever is easier.

Lease or Buy:  Which is the best option? Leasing offers lower monthly payments and greater flexibility.  While owning a car outright provides more long-term financial benefits. If you are looking for a short-term solution and aren’t sure about your long-term transportation needs, leasing may be the best option for you.

If you want to lease a car in New York and take it to another city then, call the lessor and let them know that you are moving to another state. You may need to put your request in writing and sign the amended lease if they are able to make the amendments.

Can you end a car lease early?  Yes.  If you want to break your car lease early, the lease may allow you to do so by returning the leased car early to the dealer and paying the care lease termination fee required by your lease terms.

Do you get a title for a leased car in NY?

You will not receive the original title certificate as proof of ownership.  The leasing company is the owner and holds the title certificate, which displays their name. In addition, your NY State insurance ID card and electronic notice together verify your coverage.

If the lease car is totaled, the insurance company may pay out the cars fair market value to the leasing company.  If the value is less that what you owe on the lease, gap coverage pays the difference.

To get you NY registration and plates you will need to pay. A license plate fee of $25 (for standard plates). A registration fee anywhere from $26 to $140 based on vehicle weight.  A title certificate fee of $50 if you are transferring the vehicle title from another owner.

New York allows nonresidents to register vehicles from our of state by mailing an application and the necessary documents to a New York DMV office.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
