My partner got rent to own lease nearly five years ago,
Was just wondering if lease can be transferred into my name so I can pay rest of lease and costs when buying at end of lease.

Thanks.

Read contract no it's clearly states you cannot transfer, sub lease or sell the car, hope it helps

Can I continue to pay the lease with his permission and at end of lease when buying can I be at Alpha with roadworthy and get transferred into my name without him being there.

Adam
Adamasked

Be very careful. Currently at end of lease and they are now stating I must re register car In their name prior to them transferring it into my name. Nothing has ever been said about this all I was told is to pay the residual amount and provide a road worthy certificate. They have now blocked my emails and will not return my calls at all. I have contacted fair trading and will be contacting the financial ombudsman tomorrow. Absolutely disgusting the way they have treated me . Stay away from alpha car finance.

Hi Adam, Your statement is not entirely factual as through multiple conversations with you, our team has advised you on the best course of action for your particular situation. This includes the solution previously provided to you of staying in your vehicle 4 months past your lease end date at no additional charge. Our team will contact you again over the next few days to finalise your lease.

Furthermore I have contacted fair trading and they have advised me I can take this further with the information I provided them. Including the email chain with alpha staff and the email sender from alpha stating I only need to pay residual and road worthy for car to be transferred to me. Lies lies lies

Morning Lee. Our previous upgrade process meant that you needed to be in the car for 2 years before you were eligible for an upgrade. This policy has been reviewed recently and we are currently not offering upgrades. If you wish to discuss specifics please call us on 1300257426. Thanks

I am near the end of my contract and have driven less than 80000 km. Now my car is falling apart, Fuel pump, Steering Solenoid, high beam control failure, etc. I know I am responsible for repairs, but has anyone had any success with company helping with cost, especially with a car hardly driven.

Hi
Might be a dumb question....but if I return the vehicle is the deposit refunded??? Or is there a cooling off period if I change my mind?
Thanks

Adam WillisAlpha Finance

Hi Cyn, thanks for the question. The deposit is not refunded as this goes towards car prep. Because this is a consumer lease there is no cooling off period, but our friendly staff do explain the agreement in full at our branches.

We value all feedback and welcome the opportunity to discuss the specific details of any matter. It’s best to always communicate with us if you are having trouble repaying so we can come up with a plan together. We will work with you in a fair, ethical and moral manner to resolve the issue. Please feel free to contact your account manager on 1300 257 426 to determine your options.

Doesnt matter

Losa L . How was your car repossessed? Did they send a sleezy guy in a silver car to stalk you and your house , with dark tinted windows that wound the window up when you stop to ask him if hes ok and only wound it down 2 inches after asking him a second time, this was after being caught taking photos!! And then have that same guy caught on cctv walking up the road then sneaking up your driveway whilst your sitting out front at 9.15 am and scrapping the front of the car on the driveway as reversing out quickly? Then not returning calls or emails after you have reported the car stolen to police? Not giving a damn about personal belongings in the car , like baby carseats etc, all this after no contact since 09/2017... as for their answer on your question to contact your account manager , pffft i had about 5 different ones in a short amount of time, there is no compassion, fair , ethical or moral manner from [name removed], in fact does he even still work there as emails sent to him had been returned , and [name removed], my suggestion to you is get out of this company really quick before you loose your compassion, fair, ethical or moral manner .... so Losa L take your matter further and dont give in to their bullying...

I would be very careful how you word this to them. I also don't like you're chances. Money hungry grubs likes this company lock you in to these contracts so you can't get out of them without destroying your credit rating. I recommend calling the finance ombudsman first mate and seeing what your rights are.

Easy say you can’t afford the payments they then will immobilise your car come pick it up( because the car is in there name and it’s insured under them) and then you might get a default on your file, which at first might harm your credit rating, but if your overseas it doesn’t matter plus these days defaults and marks on your credit file don’t matter you can pay people to remove them, plus they didnt give you money they gave you a busted up car an ex-rental, that’s what I would have done., if they say to me we will immobilise the car I say, sure why not come and collect it as well.

Probably won't seeing as they put there payments up....
When I first applied for the car which I wish I didn't do, the Lady at Tullamarine said to me, if I wanted to cancel my contract after 1 year the total I would be looking at repaying will be around 15,000...crap I know....I've had my car coming up 3 years now, when I asked how much it will cost me to cancel my contract they told me 16,000 I would have to pay???? Don't know how it got to that price when a car value goes down not up???
Go to the ombudsmen.. because I'm thinking of doing the same

Hi. I recently got a vehicle from your guys...2 weeks ago actually. It was smashed into by another driver, car was legally parked in front of my home.
What happens if the car is declared a write off? Do I get another car? To similar value of the one I first had?
Thanks

This is very similar to any insurance situation. Your contract includes an excess of $2,500. If deemed by our insurer that the other party was at fault you may be entitled to receive $1,000 back. Alpha Finance endeavours to process the accident claim as efficiently and effectively as possible but there could be a delay of up to 13 weeks.

Should the vehicle be written off and the damage covers the value of the vehicle, we would need to enter into a new agreement with you for a replacement vehicle. For more information please call our claims team on 1300 257 426.

Sam Rasked

Hi There, i have few questions to ask you and would really appreciate if you could answer all of them one by one.
1. What is your interest rate?
2. Does your vehicles comes with 90 days dealers warranty? If so, will you be fixing any issue within the time frame irrespective of how big or small it is?
3. Does your vehicles have manufacturer's warranty on them like hyundai offers 5years unlimited warranty? As per my knowledge inorder to have manufacturer's warranty, vehicle needs to be serviced according to manufacturer's recomendations, are your vehicles serviced accordingly.
4. Will the vehicle registration be transfered to my name at the end of 5 years term.

Hope to get answers to these question.

Thanks.

This company offers no warranty mate, servicing has to be done bye yourself and paid for bye yourself and at the end of the contract mate you have a balloon payment you have to make to keep the vehicle.. All in all mate.. You won't win with alpha.. These people pray on people with not so good credit mate and lock them in to a contract that will bury you should you not keep up with the contract.. My advice.. Stay the away from these people bro they are trouble

Ive had the worst experience with Alpha after having a accident in the car i was renting to buy, not at fault at all as i was rear ended at a train crossing.
since then i had car repaired etc, lost my job due to no car and couldnt afford repayments at that time.
they took back car and now i have found out today i owe $41000 for a car i no longer have in my possession.
No compassion, as soon as i missed the payment after accident they had started their crap.
Crooks!!

Adam WillisAlpha Finance

Hi Brett, to answer your question, all Alpha Car Finance customers have the opportunity to own their car outright. In most instances, customers just need to let us know that is what they want to do, and then continue to pay the same repayment amount for the next 13 weeks/3months. At the end of this period, we will sign over the registration and the car is yours to keep driving or to sell and upgrade to your next Alpha Car Finance contract
