Letter to complain about faulty goods bought on hire purchase before 1 October 2015

This advice applies to Wales

This letter applies to goods that you bought before 1 October 2015. If you bought the goods on or after 1 October 2015, use our letter to complain about faulty goods bought on hire purchase.

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 finance company 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 finance company on the phone or in person you could read it out to them.
