I wonder if any one can help, at the moment i have no issue with Welcome however i took out a personal unsecured loan with them 2 years ago when i was in full time employment. Since then about 18 months ago i was made redundant but i have struggled to keep the repayments up to date, I have never missed or been late with a payment. Now my finances have become so stretched i must get in touch with them to get the repayment reduced. The next payment is due in a few weeks but i will not be able to make it in full. I pay by direct debit should I cancel this as the bank will charge me if it is returned due to insufficient funds in the account. I currently pay £131. per month and need it reduced to around £70. until i am back in employment. Can anyone please advise me on how to go about it. I have read with interest some of the horror stories on this site and do not want constant phone calls or visits that they will charge me for.

On £2500 total amount of credit (or loan)

 

I make it:

 

Total amount payable: 4734.36

Total charge for credit: 2234.36

Period rate: 3.96132756654

Nominal annual rate: 47.5359307984

Effective annual rate: 59.3902679338

APR: 59.4%

 

As per the Wilson case, the fees must not be added to the total amount of credit.

If the agreement figures are in line with the above, then I suppose the agreement is ok.

 

The only thing you can probably go for is if they havent stated the prescribed terms under the act.

Hi Eyecatcher

 

It maybe an idea to PM postggj he may have forgotten to check your figures. If those are correct the agreement maybe unenforcable, that interest rate is high.

 

What you should do if the figures come back correct is fill in an income and expenditure spreadsheet for them to see what your outgoings are. There is one attached here for you to fill in:

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17158&d=1268687658

 

Remember the roof over your head, food bills, council tax, electric and gas come first. Fill in the form and see what you have left to spread amongst your other creditors also.

WARNING TO ALL

Please be aware of acting on advice given by PM .Anyone can make mistakes and if advice is given on the main forum people can see it to correct it ,if given privately then no one can see it to correct it. Please also be aware of giving your personal details to strangers
