What to do if your mortgage lender starts court action
Coronavirus update: All court action for repossession is suspended for 90 days from 27 March 2020.
That means your lender can't go to court to evict you during that time.
Any court action that had already started is put on hold.
Your mortgage lender should only start repossession action as a last resort.
It's very important to attend the repossession hearing.
The judge can help you stay in your home if it's affordable and you have a realistic plan to repay any arrears over time.
Get legal advice if your lender threatens or starts court action.
