More Information about Hire Purchase:

Early Settlement - A HP agreement can be settled at any time by the customer by paying the balance of finance outstanding and Option to Purchase fee to the lender. The lender may allow the customer a rebate of the interest if the outstanding finance balance is settled before the agreement end date. If it is an HP agreement Regulated under the Consumer Credit Act then the minimum amount of rebate is laid down by law.

At the end of a HP agreement, once all the contracted payments have been made, the customer will usually pay the Option to Purchase fee and take legal title to the goods. However, this is a true option. The customer could return the vehicle to the finance company if the customer so desired (even though the vehicle has effectively been paid for).
