Buy Here Pay Here Agreement PDF Details

The Buy Here Pay Here Agreement is a contract that binds the buyer and seller to each other. It's important for buyers to understand their rights, which vary from state-to-state with regards to what can be included in the contract. One of these provisions might include an interest rate cap on your loan, which will prevent you from being charged with exorbitant rates when your credit isn't perfect. The Buy Here Pay Here Agreement also provides protection for sellers who don't have a lot of experience dealing with customers or managing customer finances. This way they know up front how much money they'll make and it won't be any more than what was agreed upon at the start.

New Requirements for Buy-Here-Pay-Here Dealers

New Information

Effective January 1, 2013, legislation imposes new requirements on licensed vehicle dealers meeting the definition of a buy-here-pay-here (BHPH) dealer.

BHPH Dealer Defined

A BHPH dealer is a dealer as defined by California Vehicle Code (CVC) §§241 and 285 that does the following:

Enters into conditional sales contracts (California Civil Code (CCC) §2981(a)) or lease contracts (CCC §2985.7(d)) and is subject to specified provisions of CCC, Title 14, Division 3, Part 4, governing vehicle sales financing and leasing, except that a “conditional sales contract: does not include a contract for the sale of a motor vehicle if all amounts owed under the contract are paid in full within 30 days.”

Assigns less than 90 percent of all unrescinded conditional sales and lease contracts to unaffiliated third-party finance or leasing sources within 45 days of the sale.

BHPH dealer exclusions:

A lessor who primarily leases vehicles two model years old or newer.

A dealer that certifies 100 percent of its vehicles pursuant to CVC §11713.18 by maintaining an on-site service and repair facility licensed by the Bureau of Automotive Repair and employing a minimum of five master automobile technicians certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

BHPH Dealer Requirements

The new legislation requires BHPH dealers, on every vehicle (as defined by CVC §670) sold or leased, to:

Restrict the use of global positioning satellite (GPS) and starter interrupt devices, unless the buyer has been advised. As with all consumer advisory requirements, the department recommends the advisory statement be in writing and the buyer’s signature is obtained on such written document.

Affix and prominently display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that states the reasonable market value of the vehicle. The label must meet all of the following conditions:

—Printed with a heading in at least 16-point bold type that reads “REASONABLE MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE” with text at least 12-point type.

—Located adjacent to the Used Car Buyer’s Guide located prominently and conspicuously on the vehicle so that it is readily readable.

—Identify all equipment included with the vehicle.

—Contain the information used to determine the reasonable market value of the vehicle, including, but not limited to, the use of a nationally recognized pricing guide for used vehicles.

—Contain the date the reasonable market value was determined.

—Indicate that the reasonable market value is being provided only for comparison shopping and is not the retail sales price or the advertised price of the vehicle.
