Hi everybody,

Aside from asking for a settlement figure and paying off the outstanding value, what other ways can a Hire Purchase be terminated early?

I am aware some dealerships may take a car as a trade in and also agree to settle the finance and roll on the remaining amount on to your next purchase.

Is it also possible to sell the car privately or back to the lending company?

Thanks :-)

Normally when 50% of the term has been reached or passed.

I think that you would find it extremely difficult to sell the car privately because the hire purchase liability will appear on an HPI check. Of course, if the buyer doesn't bother to carry out an HPI check they won't find out about it.

This explains the legal position of the buyer and seller

check the paperwork you got when you signed it will tell you on it..how much you will have to had paid before you can legally return it..if i remember correctly its usually a third of the overall price.

I know people that when buying a car privately in this manner make the necessary payment to the finance company and only the balance to the seller. I'm unsure of the exact procedure though.

You can do a voluntary termination on the agreement once you have paid half the total amount payable on the contract. This figure includes all charges and interest.
Eg:
Credit amount: £7,000
Interest: £1,500
Less deposit: £1,000
Total amount payable: £7,500
Amount before you can VT (50%): £3,750

It has no detrimental effect on your credit rating. It's you consumer right.
