  1. We have had a mortgage with JP MORGAN for some years and current arrears are £1600 on a balance of £165,000. We have been overpaying by £50 pm for some time without any issues apart from the odd pre printed letter from them mainly as they forgot that they had agreed to payments being made on the 1st not the 15th of the month so it appears to their untrained eye that we are further in arrears every month for 2 weeks till the payment is made. No they have transferred us to Rooftop which filled me with a little dread and low and behold within a month they are threatening possession unl
  2. I was unable to pay the mortgage for about 10 months, but then I got a new contract and was able to set up a standing order which was larger than the statutory amount. I decided to pay this larger amount in order to gradually reduce the size of the shortfall in a way that I could sensibly afford. Prior to my first default I was actually overpaying over a number of years, so that my 10 months gap was actually only 4.6 months on the balance sheet (this is acknowledged by the lender). I have already given Mortgages 2 my assurance, several times, that I will be able to overpay the
  3. Older home-owners are being given more borrowing options, as a building society launches a new range of retirement interest-only mortgages. Leeds Building Society said it is entering the market, with the new deals initially being made available through brokers. Interest-only mortgages allow people to make regular interest payments on a loan, without paying off the loan itself – but the capital must be eventually paid off. Leeds’ new mortgages are being offered to borrowers aged 55 to 80. https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/interest-only-mortgages-lasting-retirement-230100829.

  5. I had an interest only mortgage with Rooftop mortgages that expired March last year. It was always planned that the repayment would be from the sale of the property (never late or missed payments). Unfortunately did not sell until this month. Redemption statement shows £726 in 'fees'. In September last year I had a letter from solicitors appointed by Rooftop - in that letter they asked for my repayment intentions (which Rooftop already knew) and stated that I would be liable to costs IF the actions appended (ie court hearing/repossession) were proceeded with. None of that happened
  6. Hi I used universal mortgage brokers several years ago had a remortgage off them and I may have been Mis-sold. Does anybody know if they still exist? Thanks
  7. Hi, I was repossessed by Kensington Mortgages in 2008, and the fee's and charges before and during this time were awful. Would it be too late for me to now try and reclaim these fee's as I now have very limited paperwork left? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  8. Hi any help would be great, Im at my wits end. Back story - 7 years ago I was finished from my job on health issues, was put on ESA, but then taken off because of their incompetence ( thats another story). Anyhoo , long story short, gained around £10000 in Mortgage arrears and when to court for an order of possession , which was suspended....had a few bumps along the way , but ironed the out with Mortgages PLC, we have so far payed back £5000. Just 2 months before Christmas last year, missed 2 payments due to lack of funds, car issues etc...Morg PLC sent out an advisor to see what w
  9. I have now had my mortgage with Redstone for about 10 years. Recently I have had to move and rent else where. I informed Redstone by post. They wrote back thanking me for updating my information. I rented the house to some nice people and was able to pay my rent and continue paying the mortgage. I moved because the 160 miles a day was killing me. I heard no more until last Tuesday afternoon when I was informed by the people renting my house that the house has a LPA placed on it by the mortgage company. The LPA company are collecting the rent now!!! Redstone collected my mortgage payment t
  10. Hi We used to have a mortgage with Mortgages PLC. They added lots of charges over the years, so awhile ago I sent a SAR and realised there was substantial charges i could possible reclaim, maybe between £500-£1200. I sent a letter asking, they said no and that I had six months from the letter to take it further. Due to various reasons I didn't carry on at that time. Now maybe 18 months later I would like to know if it is possible to try again or does that letter mean I have lost my chance. Does the 12 years still apply to reclaim charges too?
  11. Hi All Is there a difference between a court hearing for Possession and / or Repossession its probs a silly question and I know the answer but I ask because I have just recieved some paperwork re my court appearence on Monday 6th Dec, hence the title O M G. Mr Very Worried at the momment however I am sure that will change in the next few hrs.
  12. What do people think about Banks now offering Mortgages to people aged 80 or older ? Woolwich are now offering mortgages up to age 85. What are the implications ? Can people in retirement afford to continue paying mortgages ? What happens when retirement income is less than thought, causing people to have difficulties with repayments ? Will Banks be more considerate to older people when considering repossession ? Does it matter if older people die leaving a house with a mortgage ? How is life Assurance affected ?
  13. hi all, apologies in advance if posted in wrong place or incorrectly. I had a secure loan with future mortgages and that in turn was sold to engage credit which has been sold to Skye loans. Are they allowed to do this ? and is Skye loans a mortgage company? I cant find much info on them at all. Also I had PPI with Future and want to reclaim but not too sure how to or who to at the moment. Any assistance would be welcome. thanks Highjinks.
  14. Hi there, My dad runs a property refurbishment company and recently a long term client of his asked if my dad under his company will manage his properties as he is planning on going away for a year or more. The client specified that he dont want to fly back and forth to sign tenancy agreements etc and would prefer not to have his name on the paperwork between tenants (didn't ask why) and would rather my dad under a "department" of the company classed as a property management side manage everything for him. This is probably a very simple question for many, but first time for us.
  15. I was wondering if anyone who has, or has had, a mortgage with DB Mortgages has managed to get approval from them to port their mortgage? If so when was this, what were the circumstances, i.e. buying new house or downsizing, and what were the criteria that they insisted upon. Also how long did the process take and were their any 'pitfalls' along the way? I am asking as it something they say they do and which I would like to do with my mortgage with them. I am looking to downsize house, release some equity and with some of it pay a lump off the current outstanding balance, not increase the
  16. Hi, I don't do Facebook so I have started a thread on the MoneySavingExpert forum - The Acenden (administered mortgage) Escape Committee in the section called "Mortgage Free Wannabe" (I can't post links here yet). - Acenden have apparently recommenced selling mortgages on behalf of their new owners. Do join me there. I will post more information on that new thread in a while, eg about the danger signs that indicate that Acenden means to repossess. Everyone's case is unique but there are things we can to help each other get clear of these cowboys.
  17. Hello! I am surprised that no customers of Acenden/Southern Pacific Mortgages Limited have mentioned the recent refund of charges from SPML? I have been battling with them for years over what I believe to be overcharges and MANY others have made comments on the forums stating the same. We received a letter dated the 2nd of July from SPML, saying that they have agreed with the FCA that certain charges made between 1st of January 2009 and 31st of August 2012 were "found to be higher than the market norm" and have refunded the difference back to my mortgage account. T
  18. Has anyone seen this: https://www.fca.org.uk/your-fca/documents/requirement-notices/preferred-mortgages-limited-vreq I have a Preferred account and have been in constant battle over fees. I received a letter today to say they are refunding overcharged fees from 2009 - 2012 and they have entered into an agreement with FCA to refund overcharged fees plus 8% interest. The fees in the scheme include: Arrears management fees, Litigation management fees and Repossession Management fees.
  19. Hi, I really hope someone can help. I took out a secured loan with Kensington mortgages back in 2005 and struggled to keep up on the payments. In 2009 I defaulted on my house and it was repossessed , there was a shortfall in the selling price of the house , my current mortgage lender stated that they would not chase the debt . The issue now sits with Kensington mortgage, the house was sold in 2009 and Kensington have not defaulted the debt but keep submitting 6s on my credit file, I have a feeling that it was around 2006/7 that I fell behind on my payments b
  20. Can anyone tell me if I have read this right... have read so much am a little confused... GE have a possesion hearing listed for 2 weeks time, the arrears are £1,600 and approx 700-800 of that is interest and other charges, can they include this in the figure fo rhte hearing? thought I read that they can only claim the actual arrears, ie what the monthly payment is not what they are charging on top of that.. any help would be gratefully appreciated.
  21. Hi I have pasted a letter that I have written. Basicly I am not sure if this is the norm but my Mortgage company are charging me £50 for each month that i am in arrears. I have currently got an agreement set up with them via a court repo hearing and it turns out that I will apying the arrears for 5 years and the whole time they are charging £50. So I have decided to complain to the FSA for unfair contract terms and if they have a go at Kensington then I can apply to Kensington to stop charging. Well thats the plan anyway. Can somebody look at my letter please and see what you think
  22. Hi Given the recent press releases from NRAM re the incorrect statements on their mortgages and unsecured elements would there be any case to revisit a repossession that has taken place between 2008-2014. The error relates to the unsecured element but any refund of interest may wipe out any arrears that led to the repossession. If anyone has any thoughts would be great. Thanks
  23. Hi - been trying to work this out in my head but wonder if anyone has any ideas about this situation of mine, thanks. I have an interest only mortgage - the arrears I previously had were shown on the statements and increased the outstanding balance, which I understand. The new balance then attracted more interest. Later the lender took me to court and had the arrears added to the security, increasing the balance again. Shortly after that they capitalised the arrears - so - assume the balance went up again. Also added all their legal fees. Does this
  24. morning Firstly I have mental health issues, I was on DLA full rate care and mobility until around 2 years ago when it all stopped suddenly I went to court to appeal but lost the appeal I am in the ESA support group. I have been seeing a mental health worker for a few months during which time my arrears have built up. i don't open mail and can't cope basically i owe just shy of 80,000 to Kensington, I have a court order in place from 2011 which stated I have to pay £9 per month off my arrears since march I haven't managed to keep to this the DWP pay £155.44, per m
  25. Hi there Myself and my husband got into some financial trouble 5 years ago which lead to some defaults. As of next year all the defaults will be due to drop off our credit files. We currently have a mortgage with no arrears for the past 3 years. We really would like to move in the next couple of years and was wondering how long after defaults are removed will a lender consider allowing us to sell and buy? Is there mortgage brokers that WILL consider applications with poor credit? Thanks
