Answering your most commonly asked questions about making payments
I have a variable rate agreement. When will my payments finish?
The length of the agreement depends upon the type of variable rate you have chosen. Details of your agreement will be on your agreement documentation in your welcome pack.
If you have chosen a day-to-day agreement, the length of that agreement will be shown on your documentation.
If you've chosen a balanced payment agreement then the length of your agreement will depends on how interest rates move over the period. If interest rates go down then your payments will complete early. However, if interest rates rise then your monthly payments will continue after the scheduled end date.
For information on specific agreements please contact customer services.
Will my agreement change if I make a lump sum payment?
Yes. If you make a lump sum payment your agreement will be amended and rescheduled to reflect this. We’ll arrange this through the reschedule team and send you a partial early repayment letter (PER) or letter of variation (LOV) with the relevant new documents. If you want to make a lump sum payment please contact customer services.
Are there any fees to pay at the end of my agreement?
If you have a hire purchase or lease purchase agreement you’ll pay a standard option to purchase fee at the end of it. This transfers legal ownership from Lombard to you and will be taken as part of your final monthly payment. Your Relationship Manager will have agreed this fee amount with you.
