    Close Motor Finance 23rd Apr 08 at 1:24 PM
    Hi my husband has a car on HP with Close Motor Finance. We were hoping to settle the account as we need a new car due to expanding family etc and believed there to be just over £1500 left to pay on it (15 months left on account). Well the settlement statement came today and it us £2771.57. Thats including £551.62 of charges.... I knew this would happen as several times my husband has been late with his payments but generally we are talking days late not months! Do these charges get held against the car, ie: if we wanted to settle at £2,200 and pay the charges separately is this allowed?? Thanks for any advice in advance

  • Bounts seems to have totally shifted its model today. MSE will be investigating exactly what this means and report back next week

  • Today's twitter poll: British Summer Time ends Sun as clocks go back at 2am. Would you prefer they didn't (ie lighter eves, darker morns)?

  • BBC weather just told us clocks going back means "everyone gets an extra hour's sleep". Hmmm not if you've young children or on nightshift.
