Hire Purchase (HP) | Chorley Group

Hire Purchase (HP)

Spread the costs of your new car in monthly instalments over one to five years and take full ownership at the end of the term.

Hire Purchase spreads the cost of buying your new car over a fixed period of 12 to 60 months (one to five years), at the end of the term you have the option to pay the 'Option to Purchase' fee to take ownership of the car. Until you take ownership of the vehicle the finance company officially owns the car but as the registered keeper of the car you are responsible for insuring and maintaining it.

Hire Purchase holds lower risk for the finance company as the lender is secured against the car. This means HP is sometimes available to individuals who have been turned down a regular loan.

Hire Purchase (HP) Benefits

Hire Purchase is ideal for individuals who want to own the vehicle but would rather spread the costs over a few years instead of paying the full costs outright.

  • Hire Purchase loans are fast and easy to arrange.
  • Sometimes easier to get HP loans than standard, unsecured loans for people without perfect credit histories as the vehicle is used as collateral.
  • A more cost effective method of new car ownership, spread the cost over flexible terms of one to five years.
  • You can terminate the agreement and return the car after repaying at least half of the amount owned if you decide you no longer want or need the car.
  • You can pay off the entire loan at any time if you choose to and take ownership of the vehicle without any additional fees.

What happens at the end of the lease?

At the end of the Hire Purchase agreement have the option to pay the final 'Option to purchase' fee and transfer the ownership of the vehicle to yourself. Alternatively you hand the vehicle back to the leasing provider with no further obligations on the vehicle. If you have exceeded the agreed annual mileage you will be liable to pay for each mile over the agreed total. The condition of the vehicle will be assessed according to the BVRLA (British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association) Fair Wear and Tear guidelines.
