Financial Documentation

Most retailers will use documentation prepared by the finance/hire company. Having said that it is important to be aware that the wording and layout of financial documents are laid down in Regulations.

If agreements are not in accordance with the Regulations then they may be unenforceable. If agreements are signed off trade premises then different agreement documents are required and the customer has a cooling off period when they can back out of the deal.
