What happens if you default on your car lease?

Due to a loss in employment I am having to make some hard decisionsca, one of which is to give my leased car back.

If someone defaults on the repayments of the car taken on lease due to genuine financial problem, then it is better to inform the bank in writing about the same. Ask them to reschedule the lease agreements so as to give a time gap of about six months more without the repayment. For this, they may charge more interest.

If it is a lease, read your agreement to find out if there is a penalty for surrendering the automobile early. If there is, then there is your answer.

It will have a negative effect on your credit rating. The financing company may take your car, put it in the auction and will ask for the remaining amount

If you default on your car lease payment they are going to take your car away. You can see if they will give you a car that has a lower payment that you can afford.
