Hire purchase

Hire purchase definition


Hire purchase is the ideal solution if you want to spread the cost of purchasing a vehicle, across affordable monthly repayments. You choose how much you want to borrow over an agreed period. And the repayments and interest are divided equally into fixed monthly instalments. At the end of your agreement, the car is yours. You also have the option to pay off the total amount early if your circumstances change.

How does hire purchase work?


You want to purchase a Nissan Qashqai valued at £12,800, so you opt for a 48-month hire purchase agreement with an APR of 10.9%. You have a £500 deposit, so the amount of credit required is £12,300. The interest, combined with the amount borrowed, is divided into 48 monthly payments of £314.27, bringing the total amount payable to £15,698. When the final payment has been made and any outstanding fees from the lender have been settled, the car is yours.
