Hello,

 

I'm new to forum so apologies if posting in wrong place.

Debt free wannabe just getting his head out of the sand. I've recently recieved my CRA reports and have the mess below caused by myself to clean up.

 

My Problem

£2000 loan taken out 2007 - I then lost job the same week and Ive never made a single payment

Welcome Finance have been reporting 6 payments late for 5 years

debt showing currently at £3930 however on CRA file it states it was £8332 6 months ago?

Loan date 04/10/07 £183x25

I have no paperwork for the above only the info in CRA reports.

Ive not received any letters from Welcome and would like advice on how to contact/deal with this mess.

In an ideal world I'd like to pay the debt off and get the 6 payments late changed to a default or something with a time line.

 

Regards

 

Austin

whatever you do it will not be quick

 

paying the debt wont even resolve the issue

as

it is a true reflection of how you have dealt with the debt.

 

ok it should have been defaulted after the first missing payment or atleast within 6mts.

 

i cant see how

 

even in welcomes little world, they can inflate £2k to +£8k!!

 

even if you get allthe 6's removed to a default say 1month after the 1st missed payment

it'll still show till 6yrs from that date.

 

have you moved since the loan?

Also mortgage lenders are looking for a good few years of a clean record. your default falls off in october so it will be a few years from now unless you find a compassionate lender.

 

 

What you can do is sar welcome, reclaim all charges. or you can keep your head down, wait till the debt is sb, the reclaim charges without risking losing sb status.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Any particular reason why you need it clean quick? or are you just looking for a clean slate? Remember, almost all markers, unless you negotiate their removal, will stay for 6 years from the date of addition.

Yes I want a clean slate and once cleared ill owe zero money to anyone. I want to apply for a mortgage with zero debt.

 

As the debt stands it will never fall off credit file as its still showing as 6 payments late.

Unless you find a very relaxed mortgage lender, or you have a wealthy guarantor, lenders are looking for 3+ years of clear credit history. A lot are looking for 6+ now.

I will apply through my bank this time applied 6 months ago with 9k debt defaults all cleared and off CRA appart from welcome £3930 which is delinquent account from 2007

 

All other accounts are in good order with available credit larger than this debt.

The lender should default it ideally within 6 mts of the last time payment was due. I'm not too savvy with CRA markers, but i think that entry will also drop off after 6 years too, unless you have paid something, or acknowledged it in writing within the last 6 years, upon which the SB timer would have been reset.
