Housing Debt Obligations
Under United Kingdom law, debtors are responsible for fully repaying their mortgages. This could include fees, principal and interest stipulated in the original contract. If you miss mortgage payments, you could be in trouble.
Your bank, building society or lending company can repossess your property, if you miss repayments regularly. Your original mortgage requires that you make timely payments. Usually, lenders give you up to 90 -180 days before starting repossession proceedings. But even after your lender has repossessed the property, it can continue charging you fees on the original mortgage until a sale is made.
After Repossession Eviction
The lender has a contract with you for repayment of the full amount of the mortgage. The lender will try to resell your house on the open market, but this could take time.
Repossession costs could include:
- Legal fee
- Auction House or Estate Agent fee
The house is the collateral for the mortgage and your bank is hoping that repossession can recover the full loan amount from its sale. You are technically in “arrears” – meaning that you are overdue in paying your debt obligation. While the house is on the market, you might be forced to continue to make interest payments on the mortgage.
Furthermore, the bank can charge you for any upkeep, maintenance or necessary repairs. If the property is finally sold, then the bank can charge you solicitor and real estate agent fees.
What is “Negative Equity?”
Our UK housing market has risen rapidly in recent years. If you purchased your house during these times and the market has fallen as of late, then you might be facing “negative equity.” What does this mean?
“Negative equity” means that basically you owe more on your mortgage than the house is worth. Even if the building society is able to sell your house, there might still be a “remainder.” Your bank is entitled to “claim the remainder” for up to twelve years. That could be quite a financial burden. Fortunately, there is one thing you can do to avoid all the repossession hassle and losses – Sell Your House Yourself!
