My ex-husband tricked me into signing a loan agreement form for £28,000. He told me it was 'something to do with the mortgage'. I trusted him, so signed it. Is this legal? Also, I found this out by accident in 2002. I don't have the paperwork, would the Halifax still have it, if I request it?
We took out an initial loan of about £8,000 which I knew about, but he increased it to £28,000 without my knowledge.
As I said, I've heard other people have been in the same situation and told there was nothing I could do. At the time, I was annoyed but still married to him, I found out he had further debts and tried to help him out. In 2008 we separated and I have been trying to sort out various messes ever since.
Ok, not good but can you clarify this means I would have had a case if I'd done something earlier? If so, can you clarify exactly what grounds? ie, fraud etc.
