Hi
What is the basis of the claim?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

The basis is that the house was left to me in my fathers will. My father owned it but a few years ago needed a mortgage so as he was unmortgagable put the house in my brothers name. Since my fathers death my brother has stated it is his. I have mounts of documentation stating the fact he was put on the registry purely for motgage purposes and it was my dads house. I releaise the Mortgage will be another battle and will most likely have to pay it. I just want to stop him getting any further funding on it while this is in progress.
