Not sure but I have a feeling that I heard that UK and Australia have a reciprocal agreement for debt recovery so it may not be that hard for them to chase you if you try and run from your debts.

When I moved to China for a few years I still had to pay my student loans (I'm not from around here), so I enlisted the help of my mother to deposit money in my bank account back home (sent via Western Union) every couple of months. Then I just made the payments using internet banking. A bit of a faff indeed, and far from ideal, but if you're serious about repaying the debt, it's an option. Now what you physically do with the car itself, that's another question...

You're jumping the gun here and assuming there is a problem without knowing. You need to check the paperwork to see how they calculate it and ask for a settlement figure.



If it is a mainstream lender I would be very surprised if they try to claim the full amount of interest.

If the finance is HP or conditional sale or a loan in your personal name, you get an interest rebate so would not need to pay as if you had run the agreement to the end. The agreement will be regulated by the consumer credit act and the lender can only charge ±2 months additional interest for early settlement.



Call the lender and request a settlement figure (NOT and outstanding balance). Without knowing your interest rate but looking roughly at your monthly payments vs the capital borrowed of £3,700, I would estimate the settlement figure would be in the region of £3,680.00.

If you can't meet the requirements can't you simply leave the car with family, take up your dream job and simply carry on paying the £186 per month until you get near the half way point where you can VT it?



There must be someone at home who could benefit.

If it really is Hire Purchase you can settle early if you like. Goto the dealer or phone the finance company to ask how much it will be to settle - as has been said above, you won't be paying interest on the monthly payments you're yet to make. With that number, you then ask the dealership you bought it from how much they will give you to take it back. Make sure it's nice and clean etc. You should then have a few hudred pounds to find, instead of a few grand. If the dealer you bought from gives you a bad number, try other garages.

On a negotiation note - if you tell them you're moving to Oz, they've got you by the, um, you know, so better not to mention that maybe...

So given you've started throwing the insults already presumably you have a finance agreement - if so go and get it and read it - it'll tell you exactly what you need to do.



Good luck with any sympathy if you respond to the finance company in the way you've responded here
