If the personal representative has obtained a Letter of Administration or Grant of Probate, the rights, title and interest will be transferred to the personal representative who will take over the responsibilities of the hirer.
Otherwise, the banking institution will repossess the motor vehicle after defaults in four (4) successive monthly instalments.
