In 2008, a group of lending executives in Tampa, FL came together and saw a need: credit challenged customers had virtually no place to go for financing. Armed with decades of industry experience and a passion for helping customers in need—Uown Leasing was born.
In 2020, Uown was acquired by 777 Partners—an $8+ billion Private Investment Fund—that will provide Uown more opportunity for growth in the years to come.
At Uown, we understand that the credit score does not define the customer.

The initial term of your lease may be one week, two weeks, 15 days or monthly. You have the option to renew. Please see your lease for more details. If you wish to obtain ownership of the merchandise you are leasing, a typical lease agreement will have a 13 month period to ownership.

At the time of application and lease signing, you can choose between either weekly & bi-weekly payment options.
