A member of our team will contact you before the end of your lease to review your options. Or you may reach out to us at 888.731.3420..

Options

Purchase -

Your vehicle can be purchased by you or any dealership of your choosing. Purchasing will allow you to avoid any end of lease charges that would be due if you return the vehicle. If you intend to purchase and require financing, we recommend that you allow at least 2 weeks to obtain financing from the lending institution of your choice. Hann does not provide direct vehicle financing.

Please be sure to have your account number with you during any consultation with a lender or a dealer so you can obtain an updated payoff quote on our website or using our automated telephone system. Get Payoff Quote.

Return Your Vehicle -

If you decide to return the vehicle, we will arrange a convenient appointment to pick it up from you, as per the terms of your lease. Do not leave your leased vehicle at a dealer unless directed to do so by Hann Financial. Arrange for Vehicle Return.

Vehicle Inspection and Return

Although most vehicles returned to us incur no charges for excess wear or use, you may elect to have an inspection performed prior to the return of your leased vehicle. We recommend that you make these arrangements about a month in advance of your maturity date to allow the company you select the ability to complete your appointment prior to the end of your lease.

We make no recommendations as to selection of vehicle appraisers. They should be licensed by the state you reside in to ensure that the report can be considered relevant.

If necessary, upon receipt vehicles are inspected by an independent appraiser. The appraiser assesses the vehicle and provides a vehicle condition report with pictures of any vehicle damage. Hann will then render a final statement of account and will mail it to you

Charges

After your vehicle is returned and the vehicle is inspected, a statement of account will be mailed to you including all of the following:

Disposition Fee -

This charge applies to vehicles that are returned and can be found in your lease agreement (See Item 7). The charge is designed to offset expenses associated with the sale of the vehicle.

Excess Mileage -

See your lease agreement for the amount of mileage allowed in the lease, and the charge for each mile in excess of that amount. These charges are subject to sales tax.

Excess Wear and Use -

If applicable, only an authorized independent, licensed appraiser can determine these items and the charges due. These charges are subject to sales tax. Hann will waive up to $500 in assessed damage and will credit this amount to your final bill. Descriptions of Excess Wear and Use

Late And Other Charges -

Any charges, administrative fees, other miscellaneous fees, and any excise or personal property taxes assessed during the life of the lease that remain unpaid are included in the final statement.
