How to stop your house repossession in London

Do you need to stop your house repossession in London? Whatever stage of the repossession process you face we will help you. We have over 10 years experience providing solutions to property owners who are having difficulties with their mortgage companies.

The most important factor if faced with this situation is to act quickly and decisively. Communicate with your mortgage lender and keep them informed about the steps you are taking to settle your mortgage arrears. Your options to negotiate and reach compromise agreements with your lender will reduce the longer your arrears are outstanding.

Eviction Notice

If you have been served an eviction warrant or if you have an eviction date you should contact us immediately. We will help you obtain a county court hearing by completing form N244. Judges are keen to avoid repossessions wherever possible. We will help you complete the form by providing valid reasons with plausible timeframes to settle your arrears. Even if you have previously served an N244 form this will not prevent you from serving the form again. However, you will need a convincing argument to persuade the judge to suspend the eviction a second time. We can help you to formulate that argument.

Stop your House Repossession

Wherever you are at in the repossession process, we can help you to stop your house repossession. The closer you are to your eviction date the more important it becomes to contact us quickly and discuss your exact circumstances.

We can stop an eviction from taking place at any time providing we have all the correct information. Naturally, the more time we have the greater the chances of avoiding eviction from your home and the more options are available.
