Important Tips To Stop Your House Repossession

Jan 24, 2008
If you're in a position where you may lose your house to the greedy mortgage or finance company you financed your home through you may feel helpless. However, you are not alone. In fact, there are thousands of repossession cases out there, just like yours.

Because of rising UK interest rates, the prospect of repossession is very real for thousands of home owners. Sure, the economy is strong and lenders are being more than generous with loans. But, with that generosity also can come trouble. Of course, even the smallest interest rate rise can make your financial situation unstable. In addition, if you're dealing with divorce, illness or other personal problems, you may be in a state of financial crisis.

Having your family home repossessed is a terrible experience for anyone. The stress those going through repossession experience can be trying and terrifying. Honestly, there is no easy way out of the situation. The lenders will not back away, because they obviously want their money. The one and only way to get them off your back and to stop repossession is to hand over all of the back dated money you owe them. Sometimes, you can hold them off by showing them a plan of your intended payments.

If you are suffering through the unfortunate situation of home repossession, use these tips to reduce your stress. Be proactive and creative in your plan!

1. Call your mortgage company

Most mortgage companies will allow you to work out some type of deal with them, even at the last possible moment. They may be able to offer you new possibilities that could even include them loaning you more money to clear your debts or starting a new payment plan. Even if you've gotten a court appearance letter, you should try to call your mortgage company!

2. Be prepared with your plan

If it looks as if your situation will certainly be handled in court, be sure to show up prepared. Be sure to bring an organized file with all correspondence with all parties in it. Have a list detailing your expenses and income history. Being organized and prepared will show that you are serious about your finances, but you've fallen into hard times. You may even want to think about coming up with an effective and efficient plan of how you plan to sell your home quickly. The judge may even grant you more time to sort everything out. After all, courts don't like repossession orders anymore than anyone else.

3. Find good advice

Before making any decisions, the best thing you can do for yourself is to find legal and financial advice. You want to be sure you're doing everything you can to avoid losing your home. Your advisor should make sure your mortgage company is not making it unreasonably difficult for you to clear your debts with them. They can help explain the court process and help you prepare for what's to come. Many financial advisors can also arrange short-notice loans. They can often also help you make arrangements to sell your home and stop repossession.
