  3. \Hire and purchase agreement\ (Law)
    A contract (more fully called contract of hire with an option
    of purchase) in which a person hires goods for a specified
    period and at a fixed rent, with the added condition that if
    he shall retain the goods for the full period and pay all the
    installments of rent as they become due the contract shall
    determine and the title vest absolutely in him, and that if
    he chooses he may at any time during the term surrender the
    goods and be quit of any liability for future installments
    upon the contract. In the United States such a contract is
    generally treated as a conditional sale, and the term hire
    purchase is also sometimes applied to a contract in which the
    hirer is not free to avoid future liability by surrender of
    the goods. In England, however, if the hirer does not have
    this right the contract is a sale.
