  3. Hi dx, Sorry for confusion been away for years paying off debts, this charge has nothing to do with Santander. This is a charge from a car leasing company called Adam & Sons my husband entered into a leasing agreement with them did not keep up the payments he handed back the car they sold it and came after him for the balance of the lease he could not pay they took it to court and now have a charge on the jointly owned property.

  4. Hi dx. Cash cowed !! Oh god thought I was doing the right thing you see knowledge is King !

  6. Hi thank you for your reply how do I find out if it is a type k ? And what happens in the event of death not sale would the property be able to be transferred into my name soley? I'm just trying to prioritise debts we have no intention to sell so I would rather bring the mortgage down than pay this company if they do not have any real power over me
  7. Hi please can anyone give me some information with regards to an old charge on my home, the property is jointly owned and the charge is in my husbands name only what happens in the event that my husband die's can the property not be transferred into my name until the charge is satisfied or can legally the company that has the charge not prevent this as the property is still mortgaged and I would be liable for the mortgage therefore can they not stop my mortgage company transferring the property into my name only. Would appreciate any advice or info Thanks
  8. Thank You for that you have put my mind at rest.
  9. Hello please can someone give me some advise I have a £7000 debt with Santander which is currently under a payment arrangement with the CCS now step debt change I am paying them £5 a month, after a year of persistent letter writing they have excepted an offer of £2000, in everyone of my letters to them I have made it really clear that this is in full and final settlement of the debt and that they or any other company related to Santander will not pursue me for the balance and that I will be released of all liability, I have received a letter back from them stat
  10. Hi, Seq Thank You for that I have sent another letter to Santander asking them to reconsider the Full and Final Settlement offer maybe when they are only getting £1 a month £2000 might look more attractive to them ! do you have info on how long a charge can stay on your property if no contact has been made ? is there anything like statar barred after so long or is it the case that once a charge has been obtained they can sit there for life.
