Wouldn't know where to start as never dealt with HP before..

Would I be able to claim back mechanical warrenty and the gap ins? As for charges since the account started til 15dec there's about 250 that they ain't paid back.

Now that I ain't got the car I Jus want these off my back for good but I guess I will have to pay them half of the value of the agreement?

Half? Where did you get that figure from? Have you an agreement with them to only pay half? They could make you liable fir all the oustanding amount.

 

Claiming back insurances etc. reduces the balance you owe - so you pay less.

sri if your HAD paid them half .

 

i'm not exactly sure where you stand with this actually

 

it was a hire car

if failed

THEY should be paying for it to be repaired NOT you. [£300 my foot for diags]

they should have replaced it

they gave perm to scrapped it

 

you should of returned it as crap!

and paid no more

 

its was still theirs!!

 

i'll have to get someone else onboard not my game

 

but i cant see why you are paying anything more!

 

as advised before in several places

you can reclaim ALL the charges

and the gap

This is a very very quick google search on this company, so decipher what you can,

And an old 2008 post on CAG http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?159639-Returning-car-to-advantage-finance-HELP

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Which one do I fill out for the charges incurred and which for the combined GAP & Mechanical Breakdown Warranty?

Okies - Here's the CI one that's ALL charges noted upto the 15/12/2011 (Last Statement Received).

 

As for the Gap & Mech Break part there have been 14 full payments of the £48.57 which was part of the monthly payments, would it be just the interest on these to be claimed as, the GAP & Mech was useless and without the car is also pointless (I do remember originally telling them when they called I didnt require the Mech Cover as brother was a Mechanic).

 

I've made the following payments on the account: (Upto and inc 30/01/2012)

1 @ £309.22; 11 @ £159.22; 1 @ £160.72; 1 @ £200.00; 1 @ £50.00; 10 @ £20.00; 1 @ £15.00; 1 @ £5.00.

Total Payments Made: £2741.36

 

Thanks

nice little earner there!

 

as for the ins

 

you need to work out what % the ins's were of your PCM

 

to do this:

 

total cash price of insurance / total cash price of loan X 100 = XXX%

 

then workout what was XX% of your PCM

 

thats the figure you use.

ah right think I might of said wrong thing somewhere in post - its not PPI that I'm refering to.

 

Car on HP amount of credit £2825.00 + Charge for credit £2751.20 = £5646.20 (APR 47.35%)

- Thats 260.65 x 1mth, £110.65 x 46mths, & last payment of 225.65

 

Mechanical Breakdown Cover & GAP Finance Protection £1240.00 + Charge for credit £1091.36 = £2331.36 (APR 41.65%)

- Thats £48.57 x 48mths

Interest charged at a rate of 22% pa (no idea what that means).

 

I dont know if i worked it out right but if I can get the charges refunded & also the Mech & GAP refunded/canceled then technically I would have paid more than half of the car price.. if that will mean anything with terminationg the agreement as they said to scrap the car...

you treat all front loaded things as ppi

 

however if you paid £48.57PCM thats what you use in the SI spready

just list EVERY payment you have made to date

and inc you want it cancelled
