I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post but I'm looking for some advice.

 

I had a mortgage 2001/2002 with GMAC - I defaulted and resulted in the property being repossessed.

 

My parents received a call today from Paratus about a mortgage debt (obviously they were looking for me but I haven't lived at home for 7+ years). I called them back and they advised I have an amount outstanding. They said they have been sending letters (I'm not sure where). Naturally at the time the mortgage was taken out I didn't have a particularly great credit history (classified as sub prime) but they still gave me a mortgage and charged a premium

 

This maybe a stupid question but can they still chase for a debt that has been outstanding for that long?? I (perhaps somewhat naively) believed the matter to be resolved when the property was repossessed.

 

Any help would be appreciated

They can chase any shortfall for 12 years unfortunately. However, you are entitled to a breakdown of how the amount they claim you owe has been calculated. Do you know how much the property sold for and if so, was it enough to cover the mortgage?

Here you go.... letter affixed. You should enclose a postal order for £10 - make sure you write your name and address on the back and also write on the back in capital letters "FEE FOR SUBJECT ACCESS REQUEST ONLY - NOT TO BE USED AS PAYMENT" .

 

Take a photocopy of both sides of the PO then keep it with a copy of the letter. Also, the letter should be sent by recorded delivery, you can then check on the royalmail website a few days after posting to print off the signed for receipt - keep that safe with your copy letter as you may need to prove they received it.
