  • Motonovo hp termination

    Evening everyone,
    i have recently contacted motonovo and terminated my hire purchase all in accordance to the consumer act.
    I have recently been contacted by manheim to inspect and collect the car, my questions are 1) Do little scratches count as fair wear and tear? (The car is black and shows everything) and when they come should I be signing anytjing or just giving them what they require and saying thank you very much?
    thanks everyone

    Hey Buddy,

    From what I have read on this forum and online. Who ever comes to inspect your vehicle have to do so by BVRLA fair wear and tear standards.
    Do not sign anything or sign with signed under duress, a lot of the companies have little things written in and you dont want to lose you rights. under the CCA, you dont need to sign anything and they cant make you.

    A rough guide with BVRLA standards http://content.yudu.com/web/xpv4/0A2...&origin=reader

    Take your car for a good valet and polish, or hand polish. That will make most of the scratches dissapear.

    Thats my personnal opinion anyway.

      Hi, I too am about to have my car inspected and collected by Manheim on behalf of Motonovo. The advice here is not to sign anything as you could be signing away your legal rights. Remember the car must only be in reasonable condition, so stone chips, light scratches, small scuffs on the wheels are all normal wear and tear on a car, dependant on it's age. Large dents, deep scratches or larger areas of chipped paint will probably be classed as damage. As Fieldhouse said, a good clean and polish will make most minor blemishes vanish and reduce to visibility of some larger ones too.
      Hope it all goes smoothly for you.

        I would say its wear and tear and with it being a black car it tends to look worse than what it is, i hope all goes well they are coming out on Wednesday to collect but couldn't give me a time, i was assured by a very polite young lady that all would be done as of bvrla standard, and looking at the guide fieldhouse posted I think I'll be ok, but reading all the posts about voluntary termination and the bills then being sent to them tends to have me slightly worried. I definitely won't be signing anything. Hope all goes well with you also, keep us updated as per the outcome please.
        thanks both

            Such a coincidence - Manheim are collecting my car on Wednesday too. I was told I should get a call in the morning to confirm a time. Fingers crossed all goes well for both of us

                  Mine's a Ford Fiesta. It's in good condition, with lower than average mileage. The boot switch doesn't work, so you have to use the key fob to open it, so that might get flagged. Other than that I personally think it's in excellent condition.

                    I've just had to change the door check strap as it had snapped, i think my car is in good condition, apart from 2 5-6cm scratches on the rear doors (one on each door). I'm probably panicking too much, but wether we like it or not they are gonna find something to charge

                      UPDATE PLEASE GIVE ADVICE, The car has been collected a number of "pimples" in the paint work was flagged with one or two scratches that I knew about anyway. But these "pimples"suggest the car has had paint work done to it, the car is second hand and I was unaware of any paint work having been done to the car, so it has been sold to me like this, where on earth do I stand now? Any help appreciated, thanks Neil

                        In my opinion , and I have no legal experience, unless they can prove that the pimples weren't there when you bought the vehicle, they can't say that it happened when you had it. My car was picked up for corrosion on the Ford badges! Remember the vehicle only has to be in reasonable and roadworthy condition. The finance company want to claw back as much as they can to cover their loss at auction, so will try to get you to pay for anything, even if it's outside of your legal obligation.
                        Hopefully you'll get a reply from the experienced legal members here, but for now you'll just have to wait and see what the finance company tries to charge you for.
