    I have not heard of that one before, but hopefully someone on here will have and post up.
    I would also ask them for the policy/booklet details on this if you do not have them, this may explain what this fee is all about, and they should supply the details free of charge.
    I would write to request for the policy details meanings they are not answering your calls.

    Meanwhile, hopefully someone will be along soon to explain, good luck.

    I believe it stands for Hire Purchase Default Interest.
    (i.e. interest accrued on arrears. Although called default interest it does not necessarily mean that they have defaulted you).

  • Going to try and see if it's possible. If not my 400 day run of never missing target will end :(

  • Thank you for all your kind wishes.Not sure now if it's a hamstring tear now. Feels like very bad cramp in the back of my thigh
