Stop Home Repossession – Auction Agent Property Auction House

Stop Home Repossession Immediately

UK Housing Debt Obligations

Owning your own home is what many see as the pinnacle of financial freedom and independence. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen financial circumstances, people may fall into mortgage arrears and thus face a repossession on their property. Mortgage borrowers are responsible for repaying all their debts in a timely manner under UK law. This includes fees, the principal amount, interests accrued, and any other fees stipulated on the original mortgage contract. Missing a mortgage payment but repaying it promptly thereafter may not have any or much financial penalties. A borrower regularly missing mortgage payments and/or in being constant arrears, however, will most likely face heavy financial penalties – the most significant of which would be a house repossession. Banks, building societies and lending companies usually give the mortgage borrower 90 to 180 days before they start proceedings for a house repossession.

What is the issue with a house repossession?

One may ask: what is the difference in getting my house repossessed and selling my house on my own?

There are major differences between the two. Purely from the financial standpoint, a defaulting borrower will see a significantly higher loss if their house has been successfully repossessed. This is as opposed to one who managed to sell off their house before repossession kicked in and pay off their debts with the proceeds thereafter.

Repossession costs can include repairs, upkeep, maintenance, interest, the remainder of the principal, and extortionate legal and selling fees.

Repairs, upkeep, and maintenance may be charged by your lender if they feel it is deemed necessary to be incurred in order to sell the property in a timely manner.

The lender can still technically continue to charge you interest even when repossession is already in effect. This is because the mortgage borrower is still in arrears for loan payments until the repossessed property has been sold.

The remainder of the principal amount refers to homeowners who have unfortunately bought their properties for a price higher than its current market value. For example, a borrower who has taken a mortgage to purchase a property in the early 2000s may see negative equity if they are forced to sell their house during the financial crisis in 2008. Lenders are legally entitled to claim for the difference for up to 12 years.

Finally, the lender may use a solicitor and a real estate agent that charges extortionate amounts in fees who may also take longer than usual to complete a sale. This will, therefore, cost you even more for interest and other costs previously mentioned.
