The Royal Bank of Scotland : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

Has anyone got any experience of the way this Bank have handled there reposessions?

I have experience of an RBS reposession.Despite contacting the bank as soon as I knew I would have difficulty with the mortgage,and prior to arrears starting,the process was very long winded,and on several occassions,information I was given on the phone was then contradicted later in writing. Eventually the reposession went through,and the house was put on the open market for 4 weeks,then sold at auction forapprox 60% of the value of properties in the street,which were for sale at the time. I am often contacted by solicitors in Leeds asking for I&E details,they often send postcards,saying someone will call to see me,and to telephone to arrange a time,which I don't. From initial contact to RBS from myself to reposession took 12 months. Best of luck and contact me if you need to. Glen

Are these solicitors Addleshaw Booth in Leeds?

The reason I askis that the RBS told me that they were going to pass it onto the solicitors, and then 4 weeks later told me that it was their mistake and that it shuld have gone to the debt collectors, Unidebt.

Yes it was Addleshaw Booth,they have been asking for details for 4 years now,threaten to visit,ask for more information. Ironically everytime they contact me I am between contracts,so simply return the I&E form stating "no income".They go quiet for several months,then get in touch three times in a week! Can't help with Unidebt i'm afraid,but it might be useful to me later. Cheers, Glen
