Quanta has entered into arrangements with certain related parties to lease certain real property and facilities. Typically, the parties are employees of Quanta who are also the former owners of businesses acquired by Quanta, and the real properties and facilities continue to be utilized by Quanta subsequent to the acquisitions. Quanta utilizes third party market valuations to
evaluate rental rates for these properties and facilities, and the lease agreements generally have remaining lease terms of up to 10 years, subject to renewal options. Related party lease expense was $4.8 million and $4.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

Certain of Quanta’s equipment rental agreements contain purchase options pursuant to which the purchase price is offset by a portion of the rental payments. When rental purchase options are exercised and a substantive benefit is deemed to be transferred to a third-party lessor, the transaction is deemed to be a financing transaction for accounting purposes. This results in the recognition of an asset equal to the purchase price being recorded in “Property, plant and equipment, net of accumulated depreciation,” and the recognition of a corresponding liability in “Current maturities of long-term debt and short-term debt” and “Long-term debt, net of current maturities.” As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the assets recorded, net of accumulated depreciation, totaled $45.2 million and $45.7 million.
Future minimum lease payments for operating and finance leases were as follows (in thousands):

Future minimum lease payments for short-term leases, which are not recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheets due to Quanta’s accounting policy election, were $20.3 million as of March 31, 2021. Month-to-month rental expense associated primarily with certain equipment rentals is excluded from these amounts because Quanta is unable to accurately predict future rental amounts.
The weighted average remaining lease terms and discount rates were as follows:
  As of March 31, 2021
Weighted average remaining lease term (in years):
Operating leases 4.22
Finance leases 3.09
Weighted average discount rate:
Operating leases 4.1  %
Finance leases 4.1  %
Quanta has also guaranteed the residual value under certain of its equipment operating leases, agreeing to pay any difference between this residual value and the fair market value of the underlying asset at the date of lease termination. As of March 31, 2021, the maximum guaranteed residual value of this equipment was $860.9 million. While Quanta believes that no significant payments will be made as a result of these residual value guarantees, there can be no assurance that significant payments will not be required in the future.
As of March 31, 2021, Quanta had additional operating lease obligations of $1.6 million for leases that had not yet commenced and that are expected to commence in 2021 or 2022 and have lease terms of one to seven years.
