Hire Purchase (HP) is a hiring agreement between you and the finance company.
The loan is secured against the vehicle over a set period between 1 and 5 years, with fixed monthly repayments including interest.
During or at the end of agreement (if the balance has been paid in full), you have the option to own the vehicle by paying an additional sum called the Option to Purchase Fee, you will then own the title to the car and become the legal owner.
You are the registered keeper of the car and responsible for insuring and maintaining it, but the finance company remains the legal owner until the amount you borrowed has been fully repaid.
Jigsaw Finance Limited is a credit broker and not a lender. We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products. We are not an independent financial advisor; we will provide details of products available, but no advice or recommendation will be made. You must decide whether the finance product is right for you.
Whichever lender Jigsaw Finance Limited introduces you to, we will typically receive commission from them (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow).
All of the lenders that Jigsaw Finance Limited work with could pay commission at different rates and the commission values could vary between finance products, but the commission we receive does not influence the interest rate you will pay. Jigsaw Finance Limited's aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate available from our panel of lenders.
