    • Capital assessments are based on the:   amount or value of the asset at the time of the application outcome of checks carried out to protect against fraud As with income assessments the partner's share of the equity is included in these calculations - unless there is contrary interest. Just found the above in the law society website.  So am I screwed.  So confused.   
    • I am bound to say that their alleged contract is probably the weirdest I have seen. Considering it is supposed to be a serious legal contract to set out the conditions under which CEL manage the parking on land that does not belong to them it leaves a lot to be desired.   For a start it does not comply with the BPA Code of Practice which is   7.3 a the definition of the land on which you may operate, so that the boundaries of the land can be clearly defined b any conditions or restrictions on parking control and enforcement operations, including any restrictions on hours of operation c any conditions or restrictions on the types of vehicles that may, or may not, be subject to parking control and enforcement d who has the responsibility for putting up and maintaining signs e the definition of the services provided by each party to the agreement.   So no mention of hours: no mention of types of vehicle restrictions: no mention of who is responsible for the erection and maintenance of signage   and much more serious -no mention that CEL have to comply with the BPA Code of conduct-that one is listed on 7.1.    All it states is that the operator can pursue outstanding PCNs in accordance with the COP but that is not the same as saying that CEL will abide by the CoP which it must say.   Also AFAIK the only entity that can pursue for trespass is the land owner regardless of what this quasi agreement says. There is also no mention of the financial aspect of the arrangement nor how the long it lasts and what notice is required for either side to terminate.     It might be worth writing [not emailing ] to Medburn Estates asking them to confirm if this is the only agreement with CEL and whether they think it right that CEL have not received planning permission for their signs from the Council rendering their signs illegal which is more serious than unlawful and therefore all PCNs issued are worthless and should not have been issued as it is impossible to form a contract with motorists when the signs are illegal.   Also that as CEL are their agents Medburn Estates LTD are responsible for the actions of their agents. You could also ask them to cofirm that the signature on the paper is that of their Director, Anthony Brown and whether their copy has a counter signature of a CEL representative.   Carry on that CEL are taking you to Court and as another Judge has asked a Landowner to appear in front of him to explain their contract, whether it might be in the best interest of Medway to have a serious conversation with CEL to avoid any possible  embarrassments in your  [ie Laluna] Court appearance.   I have not looked much at your WS though it is looking good.   I would have mentioned that as they failed to comply with  Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007.   that they are in breach of their agreement CoP with BPA to keep to all the legal requirements in running their parking  operations.   It calls into question their right to apply for motorists data from the DVLA.   I would wait for their WS to arrive so that you can pick holes in that too. however watch that if they are late that you send yours off just within the Court guidelines.   What you are tying to do with your WS is to put your side of the case plus put CEL in as bad a light as possible for them to  decide that they don't really want to go to Court after all.

Hi,

 

Im currently a Welcome Car Finance customer, i owe £7,775 and recently they have been trying to get me to settle for £5,000.

 

Has anyone successfully negotiated a deal with them yet?

 

Also strangely Welcome finance has been on my experian credit report for the last 2 years showing the outstanding balance of the loan, i noticed that on this months report they have diapered, leaving no history i have ever dealt with them.

 

Are they on the verge of going under or have they already gone??

 

Also i have received calls in November and December, January chasing a monthly payment from Welcome claiming to be Vehicle repossession department saying that unless intimidate payment is made the vehicle will be reposed that week.

 

Has anyone ever had there vehicle reposed by Welcome, or even are they allowed to do this?

 

Cheers Stef

Latest update - In the 1st two weeks of Feb 25% of remaining Welcome offices will be shut - the affected staff are being informed today.

 

Also apparantly all secured loans that have defaulted by 6months+ have already been sold on so anyone who this is relevant too should be receiving correspondance very soon, as soon as you do please let us know who now has the misfortune of trying to collect these mainly unenforceable agreements :-)...and the offers that they make.

 

Welcome stated that they would remain open for 2-3 years to collect the outstanding book but this seems to be very unlikely and was best case scenario (probably to retain staff) the current thinking is that in 12months they will be no more, the only part that will remain is shopacheck as its the only dpt that actually makes any cash!!

does anyone know how many offices are actually left open at the moment?

 

Also, for those of us who have HP's, what will happen when they do go T*Ts up? will they try and take the cars back? will the HP's be lifted? Will the agreements become null and void if they dont sell them on?

in my opinion 1 of 2 things will happen, either some mickey mouse company will buy the agreements at an incredulous discount in the hope that 1 out of 10 is enforcable or you will receive an offer from welcome to settle early for a large discount if they cant sell them on...they can ask for the loan to be paid up in full but you can tell them to take a running jump and no they cant take the cars back

Hmmm very interesting news...my acct manager just called me to offer me and outstanding deal on my HP agreement...

Currently got 9k outstanding and as a special offer at the moment I can reduce it to 6k and pay it all off...offer vaild until the end of Feb..but he cant say how long this will last as the company change these deals on a monthly basis...or in other terms we are down the pan into the sewer with the other garbage...lol..:D

I did not let on I knew of Welcomes imminent demise and belive me it took me all my strengh not to laff out loud over the phone...

I thought I may get some hassle off these guys cos this is a large office but it looks like it could be bye bye..

Anyway not sure of others on this thread but you may be in an excellent position to start the haggling.....as Welcome must be trying to claw in as much cash as possible right now

I of course dont have 6k but it looks like my agreements could end up with some random DCA..who knows..I shall sit tight on that

hi jj69 - where roughly is your local office - the general feeling is that the first batch of closures will be around the head office area as everything is moved to a central collection.

 

How welcome normally work is the further that your in arrears the greater your discount on your settlement offer. the max they used to be able to offer was 20% but we all now know that this can and is being bettered, the closer they get to closure the better the offers should become (your already upto 33%!!), its just hard to try and get any definative answers as to when this will be though as everyone is being kept in the dark for as long as possible to try and retain staff.

When they say the amount will change, means the more desperate they get, the lower it will become. so sit tight and see how low they can go heh heh.

 

(not sure if welcome can get any lower thought ;) )

My local office is Darlington in County Durham..it's a large two floored building with Welcome on both floors hence my surprise..

I have a personal acct about 3k with missed payment for Dec and of course the car loan with about 300 arrears..mostly charges..

I need to get copies of both agreements to check over the apr etc..

Dibbothethird..I wish I had a few grand spare right now as I would be a cheeky sod and offer them the bare minimum to clear these two.

Anybody found out what will happen to these agreements once Welcome folds..I suppose they will go to Head office first..

all collections will move to head office and at a time that only welcome know all loans / hp's with outstanding dent will be sold on.

 

In very surprised that they have managed to find a buyer for aged loan accounts that are in default for 6months+, just shows theres desperate people / companies out there
