  1. If it's not the lawyer's area of expertise then there could be a lot they are unaware of. What terms are they going to try and negotiate ? Is it still a possibility that family may be able to help ?
  2. OK, thanks for the info. So I don't have to read all through this thread can you please answer the following: How much are the arrears? When did you last make a payment? Are you able to offer any payment at all ? While I understand that the issue of charges and fees is important that can be dealt with once we have secured the roof over your head as that is by far the priority. To be perfectly honest, unless you can come to an agreement with Coast in the next few days then you are going to have to attend the possession hearing - we can help you with the defence to send in, provided we have something to defend with i.e. a payment arrangement. I know you say you can't face a court hearing but if you don't attend the judge will have no option but to grant possession in your absence - which means eviction. We would then be in a position whereby we need to defend eviction action. By the way, possession hearings are conducted in a room around a table with the judge and the two parties concerned - it's not a court room with a jury like on TV - it's a totally different scenario and the judge will always try to make you feel comfortable. You say a solicitor has been dealing with this - how much have you been paying them?
  3. Hi, can you please confirm if you have received a date for the hearing and what, if any, paperwork has been sent from the court. N11M is the correct form for defence of residential mortgaged property.
  4. I'm gutted - I always wanted to meet him - he most certainly was the ONLY Bond. By all accounts he was a lovely man.
  5. If they have been calling your neighbours then that is completely out of order !! You should be making a formal complaint - would your neighbours give a statement of what calls they received and the questions asked? Who are the "While you were out cards" from? If they want income and expenditure make sure you use our budget sheet, not theirs. If you can't find it let me know and I'll send you one. Also write and ask them for a breakdown of the solicitors fees - who are they using ? silks? Probably their in-house "legal" department at virtually no cost.
  6. They must have heard how much grief you've given the banks
  7. Do you have the written copy of the order from the court which should have been sent to you after the court hearing?
  8. I hope so - I thought it was just that evictions weren't allowed.
  9. I wonder if possession hearings will be done remotely ?
  10. Your N11M defence form should be at court at least 7 days before the date of the hearing.
  11. Are you making payments on the first mortgage? is it only this Coast loan that is not being paid ?
  12. Hi, what do you propose to offer to repay the arrears? in order to avoid repossession you will have to tell the court that you will maintain the normal monthly payments plus an amount towards the arrears each month. This is done is a statement to go with Q27 of the N11M form which we can help you with, but you need to tell us what you are proposing to pay.
  13. Just so I don't need to read back through this long thread - can you explain why they are taking you to court - is it for arrears on the loan? are you able to make monthly payments to clear the arrears? I can help you with a defence for court but need to know what it's all about.
  14. Glad to hear you had a successful outcome, but as Andyorch says , you must contact the lender if you feel you have a problem looming - don't miss a payment then contact them - you need to contact before you even think about not making payment. If you don't adhere to the suspended order you will find yourself back in court defending eviction again and you may not be so lucky next time. Hope all goes well for you from now on
  15. Get to the court as early as you can and see if there are any duty legals in attendance. If there are then you should approach them and ask for their assistance - they can accompany you into the hearing and support your case.
  16. If there are no arrears on the account then the can't take any further action provided you make monthly payments on time.
  17. Did you make your proposal in writing and have they responded in writing? Are you able to make the payment they want on Wednesday? What have you offered to pay each month towards the arrears?
  18. I've helped someone in the past with Mortimer Clark issues - they will never leave you alone and every 6 months or so write asking for a payment review which means they are trying to get you to pay more. If you go with the N245 then they can only ever get what the court says.
  19. Well done ! Thanks for letting us know Tony, it might be helpful for others in similar positions to know that with help they can get a positive outcome. When you get the written order from the court (might take a week or so), can you let us know what conditions are on it i.e. possession suspended upon monthly payments being maintained etc. Now relax and make sure your payments are made on time.
  20. Actually I don't see any harm in calling them back, after all you have the upper hand at the moment with a court hearing date when their behaviour will be scrutinised by a judge. I suspect they have been emailed a copy of your N244 by the court and are now thinking it's not such a good idea to have served you with an eviction notice as you are not taking it lying down. At the end of the day you don't need to get into a long conversation with them, just find out what they want and if they are being awkward just say you will wait for a judge to decide in your favour and end the conversation We can then do a further statement to take to the hearing stating what they have responded.
