Customer Question


Law Property Act Receiver (LPA) were appointed to repossess my property. The lender gave them what would be evidence for the repossession. The LPA appointed their own agents a law firm went to filed a possession claim against me in court.

At the hearing, the court sated that there was no evidence before the court upon which the claim was to be considered. The court ordered the claimant to go and bring evidence to back their claim and adjourned the hearing for another date.

A few weeks later, the claimant discontinued the case and the court dismissed the claim as such. The lender debited the costs of the LPA and their agents the law firm against my mortgage account. I.e. they put the costs to me. I disputed this on the basis that they discontinued the claim and it was so dismissed by the court as stated above. The lender refunded the cost of the court claim i.e. the lawyer’s fees and court fees. But they did not refund the LPA fees.

They seem to be suggesting that LPA fees are a different matter from the lawyer’s fees and so payable by me notwithstanding that the evidence they the lenders presented to the LPA as basis for their engagement as Receivers and which evidence was presented in court was rejected by the court as no evidence hence their discontinuance of the case as stated above.


Given this rejection of the basis of the appointment of the LPA and the consequent court possession action, is the lender right or wrong is refusing to remove those LPA charges from my mortgage account. Is there a statute or legal guideline etc to support?
