Purchase of a leased vehicle: how to get the carte grise?

Verified 28 juin 2021 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

If you buy a vehicle in leasing (or leasing or lease with purchase option) you do not own it during the term of the contract. Registration is the responsibility of the owner (financial institution or lender). You won't have to ask for the carte grise yourself (now called Certificate of Registration).

You will need to provide the owner with documents to establish the carte grise.

It will indicate:

  • the name of the lending institution as owner,
  • and your name and address tenant vehicle.
