I'm only halfway through a 3 year lease, so I'll try again a bit closer to hand back time. I put it up here in case there was anyone involved in (or with more knowledge of) the leasing business, who could explain why it's impossible, or suggest an alternative course of action.

I don't know but I suspect Lex Autolease policy of not allowing leasers to purchase their cars has something to do with having to warrant used cars to comply with the sales of goods act. Selling through auction probably avoids this. Certainly when I bought my last company car, the leasing company gave me a 6 month warranty.

I believe Lex sell their cars through British Car Auctions. If you register with BCA you can do a car registration search. I suspect as a private buyer who knows the car's history you are likely to be prepared to outbid trade buyers.

However, it would involve uncertainty and an unknown intervening period without the car.

Thanks, Chris. That sounds a reasonable explanation.
