How Leasing Works

When you lease a car from a dealership, you agree to pay a monthly fee for the amount of time you have the car, but it is not actually the dealership that you are paying. The dealer "places" or "assigns" the loan to a bank, lease company or finance company, which means that the financial institution pays the dealer for the whole lease at once, then receives the payment from the customer. There are two different ways that you can finance a lease. You can allow the dealer to find a finance source, usually the car maker's own financial company, or find your own finance source through an independent lease company. It is often a better deal to use the independent lease company than the car maker's financial company.

California Leasing

California is a particularly good place to lease a car. Since there are so many people in the state, there are many financial companies to choose from, which makes them compete with each other to make the best deals. You should have no problem finding a good deal on a short term car lease in Los Angeles or any other city in California.
