Steps during leasing term

  • Authorisation for use of vehicle

    Using the vehicle in Estonia and elsewhere in the EU – no authorisation is required.

    Using the vehicle in another foreign country

    If you are not listed on the technical passport of the vehicle as a user, you will need a notarised letter of authorisation to exit the European Union with the leased vehicle. You can get this from the leasing company.

    If you intend to drive to or in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine or Uzbekistan with a leased vehicle or motorbike, you will need to enter into a comprehensive insurance policy.

    You will get a notarised letter of authorisation within four business days of filling in the application. We issue such letters in Estonian, Russian and English. Application for authorisation

    You will pay for it on the basis of the lessor’s invoice in accordance with Swedbank’s price list. The maximum term of validity of a notarised letter of authorisation is until the date of expiry of the comprehensive insurance contract.

    Changes in the vehicle registry data

    If you would like to make changes to the registry details of the vehicle, you will need an unattested letter of authorisation issued by Swedbank Liising AS in order to take registry steps in the Road Administration. To receive this, submit an application. You will pay for it on the basis of the lessor’s invoice in accordance with Swedbank’s price list. The maximum term of validity of an unattested letter of authorisation is 20 (twenty) days.

    Application for authorisation to take registry steps in Road Administration
  • Amendment of contract

    If you would like to amend the leasing contract (e.g. extend the term or apply for a payment holiday), submit an application in the Internet bank or by e-mail in a free format. Contract amendment fees are specified in the price list.

  • Early termination of contract

    Selling the vehicle to an individual or entity

    If you have found a buyer, the buyer can buy the vehicle or take over the leasing contract.

    Upon buying the vehicle, you must submit an application for termination of the leasing contract, while the buyer must submit a confirmation of purchase. Thereafter the buyer will get an invoice for buying the vehicle from us. After the invoice has been paid, Swedbank Liising As will issue documents to the buyer, formalising the change of ownership in the respective regional Traffic Register Bureau of the Road Administration.

    Upon termination of the leasing contract, submit an application for termination of the leasing contract, indicating the details of the buyer. The new lessee must submit a leasing application. The contract will be handed over on the basis of the current residual value, but by agreement the buyer may pay more for your vehicle. In the respective regional Traffic Register Bureau of the Road Administration, the names of the new user must be added to the registration certificate of the vehicle.

    Please note: if a third party buys the vehicle, the lessee must, in accordance with the Motor Insurance Act, address the insurance company before the vehicle is registered in the name of the new owner – otherwise the overpaid sum will be transferred to the policy of the new owner pursuant to law.

  • Expiry of contract

    In the case of financial lease, we will check whether all obligations have been fulfilled (i.e. the leasing payments have been made and the required documents have been submitted) once the last payment has been made. Thereafter we will send you the deeds of termination of the contract. On the basis of the deed you can have us deleted from the register as the owner of the vehicle in the Road Administration within 30 (thirty) days.

    In the event of expiry of the operational lease contract we will send you a reminder three (3) months before the expiry of the term, asking you to inform us in writing (e-mail, fax or mail) whether you would like to:

    • purchase the vehicle at the end of the term (VAT being added to the residual value);
    • extend the contract, or;
    • return the vehicle to the person who is required to buy the vehicle back (the vehicle being presented to the person for inspection one (1) month before the expiry of the term).

    If you wish to return the vehicle to the person required to buy it back at the end of the term of the operational lease, read the guidelines for identifying natural and unnatural wear and tear of vehicles, specifying detailed information about requirements for vehicles upon returning them.
