Consumer bankruptcy filings are rising across the country and on pace to reach nearly 800,000 in 2019, according to the American Bankruptcy Institute. Bankruptcies take a significant toll on Buy-Here, Pay-Here dealers, their portfolios, and their profitability.
The Lease-Here, Pay-Here model offers dealers a higher degree of collateral control using the lease as a bankruptcy remote product. The lease cannot be included in the BK. There is no redemption for a Chapter 7, or cramdown for a Chapter 13. The customer has two options, accept the lease and continue making payments, or reject the lease and return the vehicle to the lessor.
