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

Im just looking through my agreement and spotted this,



You have a right to end this agreement. To do so, You should write to the person you make your payments to. They will then be entitled to the return of the goods and to half the total amount payable under this agreement, that is £5,273.12. If you have already paid at least this amount plus any overdue instalments and have taken reasonable care of the goods, you will not have to pay any more.


Does this mean i can return the car and owe nothing now?
