Leasing Consultant

Facilitate the rental of products and services for set periods of time.

What's it like to be a Leasing Consultant?

Leasing Consultants speak to potential customers to help them understand the benefits of products and services, and facilitate their rental for a set period of time. Leasing Consultants have responsibilities very similar to Sales Consultants, but the approach they take to the conversation and the payment process differ in that selling is permanent and leasing is temporary.

Leasing Consultant

Tasks and duties

  • Meeting with potential customers to go over products (a rental house, for instance) and services (a mobile phone contract, for example), and the terms of leases available.
  • Helping customers understand their rights and obligations under the contract they’ve chosen.
  • Drawing up paperwork and ensuring details are correct.
  • Complying with regulations, codes of conduct and credit assessment rules.
  • Checking application details, such as salary information, with referees.
