Hello , is a chance that a breach of Voluntary Termination

This answer was rated:

Hello , is a chance that a breach of Voluntary Termination of HP can be accepted by a court ?
-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
After contacted my HP company to set up a VT of HP , they forgot to turn to inspect this car , forgot to write , phone , email to re schedule . The car was taken by the police as I didn't renew the road tax . Now they ask me to pay back the rest of the contract HP , but I refused as I think they breached the Vt contract .
What should I do ?
Did they agree that they would arrange for the inspection, collection etc of the car on a specified date and if so, did they explain why they did not do as arranged?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Hi , no phone call to apologise , no letter , no email , no date for re schedule a visit , nothing at all .
Had you agreed with them to come for the inspection on an agreed date?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes Sir , a date was agreed to inspect this vehicle , I had to take a holiday day to wait for them , in vain !
Thank you.

You could try arguing that they did not keep their part of the bargain but until the car was in your possession, you should have taxed it or SORNed it.

The court may award less damages against you. If possible, you should try and recover the vehicle from the Police and hand it back to the HP company and charge them the costs for recovering it back from the Police and for the road tax.

Hope this helps

I am afraid Not much chance.
