16 Good
  1. Hi All, Just want some clarification please if possible. got a court date set, which I am trying to get thrown out but need some clarification or experience stories on the following. 1) HP agreement taken on a car, but not showing on a HPI check with autotrader. 2) No entry of the debt on my credit record with welcome, even though the report shows they checked it. Anyone had the same things? Would it give good grounds to have the case thrown out? Many thanks in advance
  2. exactly the same for me. i submitted a defense and a poxy letter arrived saying they disagree with it and a copy sent to the courts. no explanation or details. seems like scare tactics or they are trying it on. hope someone more in the know can come along and advise on the next steps.
  3. I have found this with my vehicle, although they have left a nice mark on my credit file even though I am disputing various bits with them, but they went ahead and put it on anyway. oh well.
  4. Sorry to hijack a little, but does the multiple agreement with other insurances such as Mech Breakdown and Gap Ins on a HP apply in the same way as as Ace's loan agreement with PPI?
  5. well things a re getting a little trick now. Experto Credite have sent me 2 letters and also HL Legal have sent letters as well chasing payment for my car/insurances agreement. They have even put an entry on my credit reference report. I have written to them both today asking them to refer back to Welcome and not to contact me again as I will not respond as I have no obligation to do so and also to remove any credit reference entries accordingly as I have it in writing that Welcome have agree to refund my insurances and re-issue a new agreement accordingly. Welcome have not responded to any of my letters and then these 2 firms appear out of nowhere. Seems Welcome have renegaded on their agreement and just passed it on (not sure if sold on or just assigned collection) to another firm and washed their hands of it. Will await replies from both Experto and HL Legal as i'm sure they will respond or totally ignore my letters and send the usual chase letter.
  6. Eventually It will be sold on to a debt collector or perhaps sold to Bovine so im sure it will still be owed...well they think it will still be owed. I have seen various comments about people getting letter offering early settlement for a reduced amount in order for them to clean their loan book, but im not sure if that is applicable now. Welcome are still chasing people via Experto Credite as at 12th Feb, but not sure what the current situation surrounding Cattles and Bovine en tale regarding any future chasing of allegedly outstanding monies.
  7. Hmm the ones I have are from 2008, but seem to to be the same many people have posted on here before. next question, what are the laws surrounding selling the debt to a Debt collector etc...? does this right of the creditor need to be disclosed to the debtor by way of T&C's? or is it an automatic right granted to any lender? Ta Much and happy St Paddys Day!.
  8. Seems Cattles the holding Co of Welcome is finally being organised to be sold to Bovine. Today they have paid out the 1p per share to pay off shareholders.
  9. Can someone clarify what the T&C's for a HP agreement with Welcome look like please? I dont seem to have any apart from the second sheet of an agreement they sent me that just goes on about fees and termination rights etc headed "Key Information" which I have seen a few times uploaded on various welcome threads. Is this the T&C's? Many thanks D
  10. Well as you can see its been a while since my last post on this thread. I have heard absolutely diddle from welcome. I have had however, a default notice posted to my mums address And now I have had 2 letters from Experto Credite Ltd. The 1st one says they have tried to contact me via telephone and letter (doubt that as they dont have my number and also I open all my post) The second says yhey say they are contacting me on behalf of welcome and are threatening either an attachment of earning (i'm self employed) or a charging order on any property I own (I rent). I am going to send them a letter stating I have no idea why they are contacting me as i'm still awaiting a reply from Welcome and wait I shall. Dibbo 8)
  11. I would suggest doing a CCA request and a SAR request to get all the info on your account, plus a copy of your agreement. This way you can see what they have been doing with your account.
  12. Have you tried contacting the FSA regarding the Sale of PPI? Maybe worth asking them for some rules and information on what constitutes a compliant sale of PPI. Financial Advisers and strictly controlled when selling insurance products and i think PPI falls under the FSA. If an IFA mis-sells any insurance then there are big repercussions for the IFA.
  13. Well I have figured out part of my interest calcs and the flat annual rate of 10%. If you take the total interest and divide it by the actual loan or HP amount, it will give you a 0.x number. Times this number by 100 will give you the total interest % in relation to the amount borrowed. ie I get 0.4 so x 100 = 40%. Now divide this the number of years (4 in my case) and I get 10%. This is my flat annual rate as per my HP agreement. 10% divided by 12 = 0.83% per month. That should be the compounded interest rate used by welcome each month. im getting there, but now I just need to tie this up to the APR as per my agreement and the figure calculated using the =rate function.
  14. http://tinyurl.com/oft144-pdf is the link bebo put in post #4 and this works ok. the calculation for the APR on page 14 is very confusing, but if you search APR calcs for excel, it brings up quite a few, but again the website calcs give me different results to the excel ones. so no idea what is correct. I have no idea what my monthly interest rate is and all i know is that I have a flat annual rate of 10%. does this apply to the HP or late payments or what??
