Settlement Figure

Definition
A settlement figure is a sum that completes a customer’s financial obligation to the firm.  A fixed sum that is to be paid by the customer to complete the contract.  Settlement figures are involved in full repayments of a loan, partial repayments as well as default and debt recovery agreements.

Partial repayment – Customers can pay more than their required monthly payment at any time during the duration of the loan but they’ll need to let us know, by phone or in writing, of their intention to do this.

Customers can pay by:

  • Bank Transfer
  • Online

Survey

Definition
An inspection of a premises/risk by a trained surveyor.

Explanation
Used by installation companies to provide details of the premises and deliver a quote or to verify an installation that has taken place.

The surveyor inspects the premises that are to receive or have received an installation to check whether the property is suitable for such installation and collect information that will be used to work out the details of install and relevant personal loans. The lender may use this information to decide whether the risk is acceptable or any special conditions should apply to the personal loan or the installation, and to make requirements or suggestions that may improve the risk.

Quotations and any amendments to a relevant property may be Subject to Survey.

Subject to Survey

Definition
A phrase used by an installation firm to show that they have provisionally accepted a request for an installation pending inspection by a surveyor. The surveyor's report will be necessary to finally confirm the details of the risk to assess its acceptability and any limits, conditions and the costings to apply.

Explanation
Used when considering the basis upon which an installation or a loan is provided.

An installation supported by a loan may be Subject to Survey at quotation stage. If it is, the document communicating terms must clearly state the terms provided are Subject to Survey. Any contingencies relative to the survey must also be detailed, such as a loan being subject to the Insured accepting and implementing any risk improvements required following the survey within timescales advised by City Energy Network.
