  1. Hello, back at the end of 2008 I could no longer afford the mortgage on my french and spanish properties, I spoke to the bank but they did not want to help, I ended up handing the keys to both banks. In March 2010 I had a few emails from the french bank asking if the local agent could market the house as they had a buyer, this was all agreed and I didn't hear anything till January 2013 when a uk debt company asked me for full payment. They sent me a full breakdown of costs and they had added 40000 euros in interest late payment fees, court costs etc. I told them I di
  2. Hi, I have a question about last wills and testaments. I am a dual French/British citizen married to a British citizen and we have lived in the UK for almost 20 years. We own a house in the UK (as joint tenants). We want to write a will that will say to whom we want our respective share of the house to go to once we are both dead. We have no children and won't be having any. In my case, I want my share to go to my husband but I want to make sure that when he dies, if I'm already dead, my share goes to my siblings in France, who are French citizens, and not to my husband's family or new par
  3. Why take any dispute to the Ombudsman , is it worth the trouble? For the 3 time of trying to post this reply but worth reading:- Rights of Entry (Gas and Electricity Boards) Act 1954, The Gas Safety (Rights of Entry) Regulations 1996 In a genuine dispute there are no rights of entry(i.e magistrates warrant issued), however I would also caution health and safety matters if its a gas leak. if electricity meter dispute The Electricity Act 1989, The Utilities Act 2000 Note schedule 7 of 1989 act and schedule 5 of 2000 Act, an electric meter cannot
  4. Hi guys. The other night I had the misfortune to have bailiffs from Marston's attend my property. I was asleep on the sofa my partner went outside to see what the noise was as we live on a partly industrial site and we have locked gates to the shared access. My partner came in frantic and woke me up to tell me that men who identified themselves as Law Enforcement Officers were here to see me.. I went out to greet them and instructed my partner to lock the door behind me. Stupidly neither of us had the good sense to video any of this because if we did then t
  5. . I have a debt of €15k from a credit card from a French bank. I retired and came home to the UK intending to service the debt. Unfortunately, there was a marital break up and I can't pay more than about €50 per month. I have been contacted by email by a Hussier to contact ASAP. Should I reply and try to negotiate a low payment or ignore the mail - they don't have my address as yet.

  8. Can anyone give us some good advice? We have paid two solicitors over the last few years and it's got us no where. And we are now unsure if we need a French solicitor to see us through the bailiff stage. Our failed leaseback meant we had an unfinished property. We have never been able to pay the E30,000 to finish the property and after about 18 months had to stop paying the mortgage. We tried to negotiate with the bank but to no avail. Now it's gone to bailiffs. We have had the first letter from the bailiffs. The debt is 140,000 Euros. We had to sell our UK property in con
  9. Hi, So this is my story... 2 years ago, I lived in France. When leaving, it seemed very difficult to close the bank account, lots of hoops to jump through. I couldn't close my bank account until I had proof that I had cancelled my direct debits. Because of this, I couldn't close the bank account until the day I left as I was renting a house, and they would only give me the paperwork when I left, which obviously had to be the day I was leaving the place as it was a small village. As sods law has it, I did everything that was asked, and after a very stressful morning, I walked into the
