Customer Question

I have a secured loan with Nemo and have been in contact with them regularly and done a budget account with them as I am currently out of work. They have sent me a letter today say they are going to instruct solicitors with regard to repossession, have rung them but could only leave a message and have asked for phone call asap, please help.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Do you also have a 1st mortgage?
Is it completely up to date?
Is the arrangement you came to with Nemo completely up to date?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have a mortgage all up to date paying interest only. My arrangement with Nemo is behind with payments and have completed a budget plan with them and they accepted this seems funny that I applied for a secure loan yesterday with a company that said that they knew nemo well that I get this letter today, to much of a coincidence I think.

How far behind are you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

4 months

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If you applied for another loan it will flag up on the credit reference file as a search, so that Nemo will know that you applied for another loan. Their concern will be that if you cannot pay their loan now, you will certainly not be able to pay it if you take on another commitment which is why they are threatening an application for repossession.

If you have ever had a problem with your mortgage, the mortgage lender might want to get rid of the account and would not oppose their application for possession.

It’s unlikely that the court would grant possession if you have come to an arrangement with the lender which is only four months behind although it depends on the situation before you came to the arrangement.

At this stage in time, courts are reluctant to grant possession unless there are at least six months of arrears and no chance that the situation will recover.

If they do instruct solicitors to apply for possession, you will have no option but to defend the action on the basis that you can bring the arrears under control and continue to repay some capital.

Can I clarify anything for you?
