Ijarah Finance

Ijarah Finance can facilitate a financial lease agreement between you or your business (lessee) and the funder (lessor). Strictly for business purposes, the terms of the lease agreement will allow you to use the equipment for an agreed period of time whilst making Lease/Rental payments. Ownership of the asset is transferred to the client once the final lease / balloon payment has been made. The relationship here is between a Lessee (You) and a Lessor (Funder), and the payments are written as a monthly Rental Amount.
Hence this is a Rental Based Contract s

Rental Finance / Operating Lease*

Similar to a financial lease except the funder retains ownership of the asset. There is NO right to own the asset or equipment at the end of the term. This is a rental contract based on time & payment usage.

Commercial Hire Purchase*

Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP) has similarities to an Ijarah lease, except the customer can claim the depreciation on the asset being financed. This type of contract is essentially a hire to purchase arrangement between a financier (owner of the asset) and the customer (hirer/you). This type of facility is not very popular today as it was in the past. It is now being replaced by a Chattel Mortgage structure by most funders. This type of contract has rental based payments, and also contains many interest clauses, and interest costings within it.

Chattel Mortgage*

A Chattel Mortgage works in the same way as a fixed mortgage home loan. The financier provides funds for you to purchase an asset or “chattel” and you pay off the loan. The financier uses your asset as security over a loan. Ownership of the asset is yours immediately and this is the key difference between a Chattel Mortgage and a Ijarah Finance Lease. The relationship here is between a lender and a borrower. This is an Interest Based Contract.
