    I get on well enough with my MIL. Just hard to take as a man who moved out from his parents 10 years ago (I'm 31 now). I like the idea of paying the debt off, I've been carrying it around too long and I'm sick of it. I travel a lot with work so it's not like I'd be around lots.

    Need reliable my car for my job. Company policy already says my car should be less than 3 years old and mine is 5 years old.

    Also, I'm not in financial difficulty. I can happily service the debt and pay a bit extra each month to pay it off. This is just about paying it off quicker.

    Also, reason this has came up is because our current landlord is serving us notice to move out because he's trying to sell the property. Just some more info to go on.

    I've got it down from about £25k to £15k on my own, just feels like a weight thats going to be with me til I'm 40. Then i've got to save up a deposit on top of that somehow.
