A Parking or Resident Permit allows you to park your vehicle near to your home
In a number of residential areas of the UK you are now required to apply for a parking or resident permit which will enable you to park your vehicle near to your home but what if you drive a lease car, can you still apply for one?
Yes, you can still apply for a parking permit if you drive a lease car and the process is simple.
Each vehicle must have its own permit and they aren’t allowed to be transferred to another vehicle, so if you change or renew your lease car you will have to apply for a new permit.
Your local authority and landlord will know exactly what you have to do in order to get a parking permit. All you will require, as you are not the owner of your lease car, is a letter from your lease company confirming that your vehicle is on a lease contract. This will show them that the lease car is yours to drive for the chosen lease term.
Your local authority and/or landlord might ask to look at your vehicles V5C document but that remains with the finance provider if you have taken out a personal contract hire agreement, as they continue to be the owner and registered keeper of the vehicle for the duration of your lease period.
