It is usual for individuals with good credit rating and has job security to purchase a vehicle using car loans or car finance from a bank or car finance company in Accra, Tema Ghana.
The lender is the legal owner of a car bought on Hire Purchase until all payments have been made. In order to sell the car, you will need to end the agreement early by getting a settlement quote. To get a settlement figure, you will need to contact the finance company asking for one. You should receive a settlement figure within a few working days from the finance company, and will then have a set period to pay the amount stated. Once this figure has been paid, the vehicle can be sold.
If you have paid less than half of the total amount owed on your agreement, you could return the car to the finance company by paying the remaining instalments needed to bring yourself up to half of the remaining value; this includes any interest and fees. This is known as ‘voluntary termination’. You can get more information about this from the sales team or manager dealing with your HP from Shai Cars on cancelling your car finance early.
