    a hrm question re leavuing motability

    Hi

    dont know if im in the right section, but to cut a long story short i have decided not to take out a new car contract with motability, do i now contact the DWP to tell them this for them to start paying into my bank or will it just automatically do that?

    i'm not taking out a new contract due to the frear of not getting pip so i think this maybe a good time to cut my ties with motability.

    im guessing if i need to contact the dwp it will probably trigger a review.

    many thanks and sorrty if im in the wrong section

    Write to them keep a copy of the letter and send it special or recorded delivery . Check when your letter arrived give them a day or 2 then phone them and ask if your payments to Motability have now been stopped and will be paid to you in the future . Make certain you have your special/recorded delivery tracking number to hand

    Don't send anything to the DWP.

    Just give Motability a call and let them know.

    On your 3 year anniversary (of having the car) return it to the dealer and that's it.

    I dont really understand this situation with PIP.
    OK, so if we don't get PIP then the car is removed and the payment will revert back to your bank account. THEN you can look for a car, depending on what the payment will be for the lower rate.
    But to deney ypuirself a car, with comprehensive isnsurance, RAC cover, tyre replacement and windscreen replacement, plus all servicing before you need to seems a little strange.

    Motability have already confirmed to me that, say, you paid out 3,000 AP, if you lose the car after two years, the residual AP (3,000 / 36 months) will be paid back to you when the car is removed.

    To go and get a car, then find insurance, then pay for servicing, and all other costs early seems a bit of an own goal to me???

    Motabilty are going to confirm later in the year I think, as to what is going to happen to people who have a lease when PIP starts. I have a feeling they will confirm what you have said, that the cars go back and you get your AP returned if you no longer qualify for enhanced PIP Motability. I think they should offer people the chance to buy the car or at least keep it to the end of the lease, with people paying the difference themselves.
