Why does it have to be a repossessed property? Is this because you feel that they are often undersold by the lender?

-- Jo (chrisbrad@zoom.co.uk), October 25, 2000.

On this page I have noticed that people who are trying to buy or find a list of reposessed properties get slated or are frowned upon,well I have been both reposessed and bought a reposessed property.When I was informed by a friend that a couple had bought my property and were living in it I thought good luck to them it is just a fact of life and by no means should they be blamed for my bad luck.If you are looking for a list of reposessed properties you may find it harder than you think,as a lot of deals are still done behind closed doors.However if you spend time contacting estate agents asking about auctions you may well strike lucky,but be warned most of these properties are in auction for a reason! ask General accident for starters I used to go to auctions myself but have lost most details.But I say again to people who slag off someone looking for a bargain dont be so quick to judge put the blame squarely on the bloody minded mortgage companies and not on somone just trying to find the best deal.

Well forgive me if I don't agree - profiting from another's person's misery is not a "fact of life". It's disgraceful and I hope that all of you who do "look for a good deal" have as much bad luck dog you as most of us have had.

wanting to buy a repo

your feeling sorry for yourself does others any good, muchless yourself. I am looking to find a bargain. I am not out to profit on someone else's misery. I am trying to get on with my life. Just as u did before signed your signature on the dotted line. live and learn. I may or may have not found a better way of surviving than u did. It is not right for you to condemn others who are striving to survive when u failed at surviving yourself. You are the jerk.

I personally could not afford a house at todays prices so if i can buy a house which is for sale cheap for any reason I would be a fool to rent a house for the rest of my life if theres a possibility of buying my own. I feel for those who have theitr home repossed but the ridiculous prices of houses do not allow many alternatives for me. I dont think its cruel to buy a reposessed house.

re repossession

I AGREE WITH YOUR MESSAGE. IM RENTING AND PAYING 90PER WK. I WOULD PREFER TO HAVE A MORTGAGE BECAUSE AT LEAST ITS AN INVESTMENT, AND NOT DEAD MONEY RENTING. IM CONSIDERING BUYING A REPOSSESSED PROPERTY, AND I WILL NOT FEEL GUILTY. WE ALL GOT TO START SOMEWHERE. THE PREVIOUS OWNERS DID TRY BUT WERE NOT SUCESSFUL. GOOD BYE

I Agree

I fully agree with you. I have relocated here in UK, set up a job and am now trying to get my own little home. But with the prices today I am having endless problems, not even a park home!

I don't know why it is that a site specifically set up to help the victims of house or flat repossession should attract so many IDIOTS who either can't understand the English language, or are simply too lazy to bother to read the various sections of the site and threads in this forum and realise that THIS IS NOT A SITE TO HELP BARGAIN HUNTERS LOOKING TO EXPLOIT OTHER PEOPLE'S MISFORTUNE.

In absolutely no way shape or form does purchasing repossessed property at a below market price help those who have had their homes taken away from them. The only people who benefit are those who manage to purchase a discounted property because of the dishonest behaviour of lenders and estate agents.

Nobody has a list of repossessed properties to give you. Such lists simply don't exist, or if they do the only people with them atr the lenders. Do the genuine people posting here a favour, call, write to, email the Halifax, Abbey National, Nationwide, etc., and pester them not us!
