$500 fee for a used loaner? Also confused on the deferred payments. Are you saying it’s the new lessee’s responsibility?
Then there’s no incentive for anyone to take the car despite a good monthly payment - why would the new person be responsible for paying for someone else’s use of two months of this vehicle!? Sounds like someone is trying to get out of their vehicle for financial reasons which is fine but it’s not the new person’s responsibility. I know you’re the middle man but I can’t be the only one thinking this.
For whatever it’s worth, this is a 60k msrp 440i with m-sport with an artificially low $400 payment as the original customer bought it lower by putting down a large down payment of over $7k. In my opinion it’s a solid deal especially for someone who doesn’t want to commit to a 3 year lease in this environment.
All the best.
Considering the 1,500+ miles/mo, this is a great deal. Someone jump on this!!
Fair point - my concerns were more about “principle” as opposed to it being a good deal
The customer put 7k down on a 4 series? You’re a bad broker if you let your customer do such a thing.
This needs to be in the lease transfers section of the forum and the DAS needs to be in the title.
Lease transfer cannot be initiated unless your account is current. No one is going to give you money to pay off your 2 payments before getting a credit app. This deal has way too many hoops to jump through for an average deal at best. There are much better deals on here with no strings attached.
the antithesis of this site
The account is current, it’s just that the payment has been deferred to the end of the lease term.
I took over a lease on a 3 series a few years back that had an $18,000 down payment.
Lol that’s thousands more than the total lease cost of my 36 month 5 series!
To be clear:
The 2 deferred payments are $810 <— this will have to be paid by lease end
The remaining 1k are the $500 broker fee and $500 BMW transfer fee <-- this will be due at signing
Edit 6/8: one payment of $405 to customer is required upfront and customer will pay the other payment.
It was unbelievable, I think the original leasee had some reason for this approach as he was very business savvy. For me taking over the lease it was a thing of beauty. I think the payments were still in the $170 a month range even with this down payment back then though for a $56-57k (I think) 335.
With payment deferral, BMW doesnt consider it current. It will show a negative balance on your account but they just dont report it to the credit bureaus. To start the transfer process, you ll need to payoff your deferred payments to bring your acct to current. A call to bmwfs will confirm this.
Thank you for bringing this up - will have the customer call BMW and confirm.
