has outstanding finance
Nearly two thirds of new vehicles are bought using a finance agreement each year. These agreements have to be paid off before you buy it. HPI holds details of over 7 million current finance agreements, so your car will be checked against them. For further information see Types of Finance.
We check the Police National Computer (PCN) register for stolen vehicles. Never buy a vehicle on this register, because you stand to lose it, along with the money you paid for it.

Although write-offs can legitimately be allowed back on the road, almost half are beyond repair.
