Lease rate(redirected from Lease Rates)
In a leasing agreement, the interest rate. For example, when one leases a car, the bank or leasing company buys the car from the dealer, and lends its use to the driver until he/she pays back the purchase price plus some extra money. The extra money is the interest or lease rate. It is presented as a very small number, say .00220. One arrives at this number by dividing the APR by 2400. In this case, .00220 is the equivalent of a 5.28% interest rate. It is also called the money factor or simply the factor.
