Repossession : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

I moved out of my house six weeks ago after getting a suspended repossession order. My husdand had to give up work due to a long standing illness I have. I did not inform the C&G of where I have moved and intended to remove the rest of my goods from the house as soon as they re-applied to the courts for repossesion again(and hand in the keys) I came out of hospital last week and my husdand went to the house to collect the mail as he usually did once a week,only to find that without notice the c&g had been back to the courts(I presume)and repossed without notifying me. Is this legal and do I have and legal way of addressing this proiblem.

As far as I know this is legal, but that does not mean you cannot do anything about it. Depending on the circumstances, a solicitor may be able to advise you that you can stop the sale of your goods.

You may also be able to stop the sale of the house but you need legal advice on this.

If you contact the C&G as soon as possible, they should be able to arrange a time for you to collect your belongings. Most mortgage lenders allow about a month after the bailiffs have changed the locks for this.
