Threat of repossession

Threat of repossession

SKU: 5.67
  • Advice

    If your mortgage lender has exhausted all financial solutions, they may seek to repossess the house. Reputable lenders will have followed a ‘pre-action protocol’ to prevent this from happening. If your case goes to court, both you and your lender have to prove that you followed these protocols. During the repossession process, the lender has to consider all payment options offered by yourself. Generally, repossessing a property is treated as the very last option. Nevertheless, to make a fair and affordable arrangement, total honesty is critical. Being scared to contact your lender is understandable but not keeping them informed simply leaves them unaware of the true situation, as such they have no option but to assume that you can pay the mortgage, but are refusing to do so. It is natural when dealing with your lender to over compensate and agree to pay more than you can truly afford, our advice is simply - be total honest.


    How we can help

    Mortgage lenders are usually very approachable, however if previously agreed repayments have not been maintained then they have a set protocol to recover the debt, we can step in to try and try and resolve the issue, however you must appreciate that the lender would look upon our assistance as your last chance to avoid repossession, ultimately we can appoint an independent financial advisor to put forward a workable solution, but you must keep up these payments or the bank will most likely reissue proceedings.


    Lestons can mediate with your lender to try and seek a working solution, these may include:

    • Extending the mortgage term to lower the payments;
    • Accepting reduced repayments for a set period;
    • Agreeing to a payment “holiday”, or possibly
    • Moving your mortgage somewhere else.
