Monthly Payments Confirmation
You have opted to pay your insurance premium/s by monthly Direct Debit.
Before proceeding, please can you confirm that your average monthly income less your average monthly expenditure exceeds the monthly instalment amount?
Please note that this monthly Direct Debit facility is provided by Close Brothers Limited T/A Close Brothers Premium Finance (‘Close Brothers Premium Finance’). You are applying for a running account credit agreement with Close Brothers Premium Finance to pay your insurance premiums. The credit is not suitable for any other use.
Any request for future drawings on the agreement should be made through us.
In the event that you have any questions in relation to the credit being provided by Close Brothers Premium Finance, please contact us on 0870 990 7967. Please do bear in mind that your credit application must be completed via this website and cannot be completed by telephone.
Is your regular monthly income sufficient to meet the monthly repayments for this finance agreement?
After taking all your monthly outgoings into consideration, please confirm that your regular monthly income is enough to meet the monthly repayments for this finance agreement?
Are you aware of any circumstances that could affect Close Brothers Premium Finance’s decision to offer you this finance agreement, including your ability to meet your minimum monthly payment on time for the lifetime of the agreement?
The cost of the credit is made up of interest at the interest rate shown on the previous page. In certain circumstances, you may also have to pay administrative fees and Close Brothers Premium Finance will advise you as and when they arise. These costs, together with the APR, are also set out in a Welcome Letter and the Standard European Consumer Credit Information (SECCI) sheet which Close Brothers Premium Finance will send you if you are accepted.
It is very important that you read all the information in the Welcome Pack and take time to consider it carefully. This information is aimed at enabling you to make an informed decision about whether or not this is the right product for you.
A copy of the credit agreement will be sent to you in your Welcome Pack and you will be asked to sign and return the credit agreement to Close Brothers Premium Finance.
A charge over the insurance policy forms the security for the credit agreement so your insurance policy is at risk of cancellation if you fail to meet your repayment obligations. If the credit agreement is cancelled in such circumstances, Close Brothers Premium Finance has the right to receive refunds paid under the policy. Any such amount Close Brothers Premium Finance receives will be used to reduce the amount you owe to Close Brothers Premium Finance. Close Brothers Premium Finance will pay all monies you borrow under the credit facility directly to us. Close Brothers Premium Finance may suspend your right to draw on the credit facility.
Should you default on your credit agreement then the default fee of £30 will be payable. In the event of the arrears not being cleared by a specific date, which will be advised to you, Close Brothers Premium Finance may terminate your credit agreement and enforce the security given by you under the credit agreement. This will result in cancellation of your insurance policy. You will be liable to pay all sums owing to Close Brothers Premium Finance as well as any charges that Close Brothers Premium Finance may impose upon you. This may also affect your credit rating.
You have the right to withdraw from the credit agreement for a short time after you have signed it. This will be fully explained in a Welcome Pack which Close Brothers Premium Finance will send you if your application is successful.
If you validly withdraw, the credit agreement is treated as if it was never entered into and you must repay the amount of credit within 30 days beginning with the day after the day you notified Close Brothers Premium Finance of your intention to withdraw. You will have to make alternative arrangements with us to pay for your insurance cover.
You can repay the credit agreement at any time, either in full or in part. Where partial repayment is made you must continue to meet the remaining minimum monthly repayments, unless Close Brothers Premium Finance has notified you in writing that the minimum monthly repayment has been reduced.
You can obtain further information by contacting Close Brothers Premium Finance on 0870 990 7967 or by writing to Close Brothers Premium Finance at Close Brothers Premium Finance, 21st Floor, Tolworth Tower, Ewell Road, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 7EL.
The next step will be to set up the Direct Debit Instruction to enable Close Brothers Premium Finance to debit your bank account with the minimum monthly repayments.

MATERIAL FACTS DEFINITION -
Material facts are those that are likely to influence an insurer in the acceptance of this proposal and it is essential that you should disclose them. If you are in doubt as to whether a fact is material then, for your own protection, you should disclose it since failure to do so could affect the operation of your policy.
YOUR DUTY OF DISCLOSURE -
You must take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to the insurer. This means that all the answers you give and statements you make as part of your insurance application, including at renewal and when an amendment to your policy is required, should be honest and accurate. If you deliberately or carelessly misinform the insurers, this could mean that part of or all of a claim may not be paid.
Your duty of fair presentation applies at the start of the policy, at renewal and when any variation of the policy is arranged. If you fail to make a fair presentation, the insurer may refuse to pay your claim or reduce the settlement amount, depending on the circumstances.
