Repossession next week : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

Please can anyone give some advice. I live at my parents house (joint mortgage) with my 2 1/2 yr old son. My father passed away last year. The DSS pay the interest (due to my mum being on Jobseekers Allowance) on the mortgage and I pay the balance (about half). My mother doesn't work as she looks after my son so that I can work. However,the DSS didn't pay for a period when my mum was advised to close her JSA claim and claim for Widows Pension, which she did. There are now about 2k arrears from the DSS, but in total about 10k. We have had a repossession order for next Wednesday (11th July) and I'm trying to find out what I can do to get it postponed. Can anybody help?

Please phone and then visit your local Citizens' Advice Bureau, is my advice. They have specialists in these areas, and can help you. It's the best 'first port of call' I can think of, and it may be all you need.
