DLA-Abbey-Is this it?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

It's been 3 weeks since I last heard from DLA when they told me that they were "Considering my comments and taking our client's further instructions" They also said they would be in touch in due course.

On 15 February it was 5 years since the house was repossessed. As the property is in Scotland and was purchased under scottish law am I right in thinking that they can no longer do anything?

I dont know whether I'm best sitting tight or to write to DLA and push them to see what their next step will be. Any advice on how best to proceed would be gratefully received.

I'm thinking that you need to do a spot of research and find out if the Scottish limitations of 5 & 20 years are an exact match with the English & Welsh system's 6 and 12 years. If so, then look at the Repossession section on this site with this in mind. I would have thought a CAB in Scotland would be able to advise on this, and you could do this over the phone. Details will be on NACAB's web site.

If you could then post this info back on this site, you would be helping other people too. There must be quite a lot of cases like this.
