  1. At the end of the day, I tend to agree that they have been more than reasonable.
  2. Wow how bizarre.....25 year mortgage with Halifax...due to mature in 2011...no payments made since 2011....creditor has never started repossession process and still sending out statements. The only form of contact for many years has just been an annual statement Capital amount will become statute barred in 4 years 2023...interest being added to a matured presumably ended agreement.They are threatening action if the balance is not paid or we contact them by tomorrow DId they contact you towards the end of the term of this agreement for your proposals of payment? We are talking about 8 and a half years ago, officially mortgage ended March 2011 but I can trace payments up to September 2011. At that point they were still looking at it as a mortgage in arrears and can't recall any discussions about proposals of repayment other than carry on paying until repaid.
  3. Andy, do you need me to get the Mortgage Statement for any info or did you just want to check they were being received each year?
  4. Main mortgage is with Halifax and second one with Together.
  5. Sorry Andy, I thought I had mentioned that I do live there in my last post. I do still get annual statements from them, but not with me at the moment. I cannot remember getting a sum of arrears notice in several years. Not sure on the interest portion but £500 added in last 6 months. March 2019 letter (no specific date) has balance £10,004.53 18 July 2019 letter £10,422.30 20 August 2019 letter £10,464.43 10 Sept 2019 letter £10,510.40
  6. I am more than happy to pay the capital amount and would have agreed the interest as well, had that not become unenforceable. I just needed clarification on whether I was correct and advice on how to approach this, as once I contact them the SB bar is reset. Should I email them requesting they recalculate the debt owing as I believe that no payments have been made since 2011?
  7. Thank you for the information Andy, In stating section 5 below, when I attempt to sort out the repayment of balance, should I state to Halifax that I am aware that the interest portion is not enforceable and only offer to clear the capital sum, or am I being a complete idiot and totally misinterpreting what I am reading? (5)Subject to subsections (6) and (7) below, no action to recover arrears of interest payable in respect of any sum of money secured by a mortgage or other charge or payable in respect of proceeds of the sale of land, or to recover damages in respect of such arrears shall be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the interest became due.
  8. Under Step Change website Bank Fodder, see here: https://www.stepchange.org/debt-info/can-i-write-off-debt/statute-barred-debt.aspx How does a debt become statute-barred or extinguished? The laws set out the period in which a creditor has to begin court action. The length of time varies depending on the type of debt and is known as the ‘limitation period’. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland: For most types of debt in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the limitation period is six years. This applies to most common debt types such as credit or store cards, personal loans, gas or electric arrears, council tax arrears, benefit overpayments, payday loans, rent arrears, catalogues or overdrafts. There are some exceptions though: Mortgage shortfalls have a longer limitation period of twelve years for the money you borrowed (the ‘capital’), while the interest charged on this has a limitation period of six years
  9. I haven't checked with the Land Registry but assume the charge is still there. I have no knowledge of SB rulings but read: For most types of debt in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the limitation period is six years. This applies to most common debt types such as credit or store cards, personal loans, gas or electric arrears, council tax arrears, benefit overpayments, payday loans, rent arrears, catalogues or overdrafts. There are some exceptions though: Mortgage shortfalls have a longer limitation period of twelve years for the money you borrowed (the ‘capital’), while the interest charged on this has a limitation period of six years
  10. Hi. I took out a 25 year mortgage with the Halifax in 1986. This still has a balance of around £10,000 and I have made no payments to them or any dealings since 2011. While I understand the capital sum is not statutory barred for 12 years, being a mortgage, is my understanding correct that the interest is, as this becomes barred after 6? They have resumed contact for the first time in many years recently and as I have not replied, they are now threatening action. I got into debt in 2008 and am still struggling and I fell behind with the Halifax when I took out a sub-prime loan against the property. Any ideas on how I should deal with Halifax? I do not want to do anything to lose the statutory barred portion of the mortgage. Thanks, Tony
