My friend's son brought a car on HP, is she liable as he can't pay, she is not a guarantor

My friend's son brought a car on HP, but now he cannot afford to pay back the installements? My friend is paying as she is scared the bailiffs will come to her house to take her possessions. She was not a guarantor for the loan, so is that possible? Thank you.

If your friend’s son cannot keep up the payments on his car Hire Purchase (HP) then the company that owns the vehicle may take steps to recover the debt, this would usually mean by repossession of the vehicle.
