i have a debt company chasing me for a claim against my ex boyfriend who has not lived with me for 6 years. they are now threatening to remove goods from my house. however we have an on going case to get him off the mortgage.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you
They cant do this. You are not liable for the debts of your ex. They can't remove goods without a Court order, but in any event you are not liable for the debts of anyone else unless you agreed or act as guarantor.
To remove goods they would need to issue a claim in the County Court and get Judgement in your name, but you would know about that and be able to defend it,
They are just blowing hot air - they can't remove your goods.
