What happens after 28 day ruling for reposession.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

My girlfriend is living in matromonial home with two children 8 and 5 years. She split with husband in July 1999 and he has not paid mortgage, #30000 in his sole name, since Nov 99, not to mention any maintenance !!. He lives in a large flat and has done since split.

The Abbey National wrote to him in March demanding payments. He ignored them totally and so the Abbey instigated court proceedings for repossesion. He did not tell his wife ( my girlfriend ) what was happening until 2 weeks before case was at court.

Today 16/10/00 the matter was heard. My girlfriend attended with legal rep. He did not appear. The Judge ordered that within 28 days my girlfriend and children should leave the property.

Clearly she is distraught and wonders what happens next if she cannot find other suitable accommodation before the 28 days are up.

Can anyone out there help us and advise us on what is the best thing to do, and what will happen after the 28 days are up.

She cannot pay the debt herself and is just after more time, ideally moving after Christmas.

Your help or personal experience will be appreciated.

Regards Paul Rawstron.

I work in the field of difficult to place mortgages and yours is an all too familiar one. the only way I have succeeded in delaying a repo order was to get in place an offer from a mortgage company. This would involve more information about the personal circumstances to obtain a rapid response. If you wish to contact me urgently to discuss this possibility call 0966 477115 and i will give it my immediate attention.

Hi there Frank,

Thanks for offering to help Paul on the Home Repossession Page Q&A board.

I'm keen not to see the board descend into free advertising, so I would prefer it if those people who offer paid-for services "earned" the reader's trust by broadly answering questions on the board, where others can benefit from the answer, and by referring readers to your phone number if they feel they need more detail or help with their individual case.

This way you are contributing a service in return for the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and expose your contact details.
