    PCP-can lender prevent overpaying legally 12th May 18 at 10:08 AM
    Can a lender discourage/prevent PCP over payment in their contract legally? Can they specify fines for overpaying or limit the amount to be overpaid in a year or so? If yes, is there a limit on the fine for overpaying they can charge legally?

    I understand such fines are allowed for PCP settlement with the fines limited by a fixed number of months interest. To prevent that fine is it possible to overpay all the remaining debt minus 50 pounds or so and then settle?

    Only a court can demand a fine.

    A contract may speciify an admin or othre fee for over-payments though.
