Hire-purchase is a mutual interest contract. Regarding its commutative nature, exchangeable items that are
against each other are exchanged in contracting process, so if contract is null or is canceled for any reason
according to the contract terms, in the way that transferring possession is impossible, relevant actions will be
based on the contract if funds entitled monthly installments are determined in. Therefore, the current paper aims
to comparatively study hire-purchase in Iranian and common law. Analytical-descriptive method is applied in the
paper. The findings indicate the difference between hire-purchase in Iran and common law is that contract for
common law is just utilized for movable properties; while in Iran law it is utilized for both movable and
immovable properties. In England law, hire purchase is a specified contract. According to the England hire
purchase law and consumer credit law in 1974, hire purchase is a contract in which leased goods are transferred
from creditor to the credit receiver instead of using periodic payment. It happens only when the credit receiver
fulfills the contract terms. In other words the hire purchase contract used in England law is a hire contract with
tenants' rights of possession, while it has not been explained in the Iranian law.
