Hire Purchase (HP)
With HP, you pay a deposit and pay off the value of the car in affordable monthly instalments with the loan secured against the car. This means you don't own the vehicle until the last payment is made.
- Any outstanding finance must be settled if the vehicle is sold.
- You do not own the vehicle outright until the final payment is made.
- Your vehicle is at risk of repossession if you do not maintain contractual payments.
- You must not sub-lease or rent the vehicle to a third party.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
Currently the most popular way to finance a car and is essentially a long-term loan agreement. Monthly repayments tend to be lower and at the end of the term, you have a few options:
- Return the vehicle.
- Put any equity value of the car towards the the purchase of your next vehicle.
- Pay the ‘balloon’ payment and take fully ownership of the vehicle.
- This is ideal if you like to change your car every few years.
