Customer Question

Hi, I wonder if you can help. My sisters husband left her in August this year. She and the children are staying in the family home. However, her husband is planning to remortgage the house next week.
Unfortunately my sisters name was not on the mortgage and we are now applying through the land registry to get her name on the deeds. The concern is about how long this takes and can she get an emergency application put through to prevent him from taking this action ?
If any one could help, I would be so very grateful.

Hi Clare,
Yes we have obtained the forms from the land registry, and have filled them in ready to send tomorrow.
The mortgage is with HSBC, and there is about 180,000 left on it. The house is worth 470,000.
Thank you
