Hi I have just got divorced, last court hearing was in November.

Resolved Question:

Hi
I have just got divorced, last court hearing was in November. Amongst other things I have agreed to give my wife the proceeds of the 4 bed house in Chertsey that has to be sold.
In the meantime I am paying £1986-00 per month for the mortgage. I have written to the Halifax three times since November asking them to advise me if I can just pay the interest only on the mortgage until the house is sold, having explained to them the current circumstances. So far, no reply.
Is it possible that you could write to them and facilitate an answer from a legal viewpoint.
Many thanks,
Richard Osgood

Thanks Clare,


Would a letter from a solicitor / lawyer elicite a response from Halifax?


thanks,

Hi
Highly unlikely I am afraid.
You can try going into a Branch - and also making a separate complaint to the Halifax about their lack of response
If there is still no luck then you can try the banking Ombudsman

Please ask if you need further details
