When leasing a car, who is the registered keeper?

Back to FAQs

When taking out a lease on a car, you may be confused as to who is the registered keeper of the vehicle. Leasing a vehicle is essentially the renting a vehicle from the leasing company and then handing the vehicle back when your contract comes to an end. The finance company has the financial interest in the car and, therefore, is the owner and the registered keeper of the vehicle throughout the contract hire agreement.

At no point throughout the lease will you be the registered owner or keeper. If you wish to purchase the vehicle at the end of the agreement, this will be the only opportunity to become the registered owner and keeper of the vehicle.
