Posession Due But I Now Have The Cash - What now? - MORE

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

Tried to contact the building society but the guy I wanted had gone home for the day (FRIDAY) Another question, sorry to be a pain..... As I now have all the cash to pay the arrears and bring the mortgage account up to date, and should the building society refuse to lift the possession order AND should the District Judge refuse to amend his order what are the chances of me suggesting to him that as all arrears have now been paid to let me stay in the house PROVIDING I (a) keep up the mortgage payments AND (b) let the building society sell the house through their agency with me still in residence.

Hi Pete !

You are in a strong position - there's no need to even contemplate (b)- it shouldn't even go to court if your lender is half decent !

Remind them that if they cannot achieve any more than your offering, i.e. arrears paid off (or rely on the Norgan v Cheltenham & Gloucester 1995 Court of Appeal ruling - see posting lower down the list)the n you will seek an order for costs - the court is the arena of last resort !

I have also mailed you privately.

Good luck - Vic
