The use of lease-purchase financing by state and local finance officers has increased substantially over the last several years because of the flexibility of the lease-purchase as a financing instrument, and the ability to spread the cost of the equipment or capital asset acquisition over a period of time.


The Lease-Purchase Agreement is in effect an installment purchase agreement whereby the city or county makes periodic lease payments of the principal and interest. Upon receipt of the final payment, a bill of sale is released to the city of county, free and clear of any lien or security interest.

The Lease-Purchase Agreement can be set on monthly, quarterly, semiannual, or annual payments. This flexible payment mode will allow the city of county to plan their budget appropriations. The lease purchase agreement is also subject to annual budgeting appropriations. The city and county has the right to terminate the lease if non-appropriation for the equipment being leased should occur.
