Hi, Does anyone know what Nationwide is likely to do in our situation please?

 

Wife is 16 years older than me so we had a 10 year self cert mortgage taking her to age 65 originally through Derbyshire/Salt and now taken over with Nationwide.

 

About 12 months ago we rang Nationwide after receiving a standard letter re repaying the loan at the end of the mortgage term. The friendly but extremely unhelpful call center guide was only interested in referring us to an independent mortgage advisor when asking about options and whether we could extend the term as they couldn't give advice and there were NO options on Nationwide doing some sort of deal or changing the mortgage.

 

There wasn't much point in talking to a broker as my business went south in 2009 and we have wobbly credit, can't prove income to service the loan now although have no arrears or ever been in arrears.

 

Instead we have been trying to sell the property - £255000 mortgage and 2 local estate agents started us at £395,000 now down to £340,000 and only 3 viewings in a year!

 

I have been trying to understand 'Forebearance' but can't find any examples of any lenders being helpful to customers when they can't afford repayment.

 

All we want to do is to continue actively trying to sell it while paying interest only rather than have it repossessed and forced sold.

 

Does anyone know what is 'likely' to happen - particulalrly where Nationwide are involved? Any thoughts or advice would be really appreciated.

 

Wife was just going to leave today she is getting so upset.

 

We have until Feb for the mortgage term to end although haven't received any notices about the mortgage since last year.

 

Thanks

Nationwide could foreclose and sell at Auction, leaving you liable for any difference,

or you could lower your asking price for a quick sale, it appears you have £90K buffer.

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, I appreciate that they can foreclose and we have been dropping the price. We understand that ultimately something is better than nothing/a debt if they sell for less than the mortgage but it still hurts to hemorrhage the only bit of money we have and you always have to negotiate a sale anyway.

 

Does anyone have any experience of what they do in practice? Might they extend the term or allow a period longer to sell on the market? Even if we dropped to €250000 and invited bids it would take longer than we currently have!

No point asking us, ASK a Nationwide Manager! Every case is different.

Inevitably that will happen - just trying not to pre-empt action by them

Try talking to an independent mortgage broker - the good ones usually know what the options might be

First have a read of the following

 

Nationwide will most certainly have to allow you a period to sell your property about 2 years would be seen as reasonable

 

Several banks including are introducing new mortgage schemes to help in your situation
