Use this letter template to complain to the finance company that you make your hire purchase (HP) payments to. They are responsible if the goods are faulty, rather than the trader that sold them to you.
It should help the trader understand your point of view and their legal obligation to sort out the problem.
You can send the letter by post or copy the text into an email. If you’d prefer to talk to the trader on the phone or in person you could read it out to them.
