first you must determine if you really owe this money? Do you know what arrears you had, was the house reposessed and sold for a fair price, did you have a MIG that you understood would pay any shortfall? We need these answers before we can advise you of your options. Have you SARN'D the lender yet?
Take the time to read the info on the site, and then post the answers to the relative questions.The lender has an obligation to prove you owe this money.
Meantime what I would advise you is NOT to come to any arrangement with them and NOT to acknowledge the debt and NOT to fill in any I & E forms.
Act now but don;t panic as there are people on this site who will give you good appropriate advice.
