Repossession is a legal process which enables a lender to take possession of property due to unpaid debts once a Court order has been issued. In a bid to avoid the prospect of repossession you should attempt to keep three months worth of salary in a savings account. At any point, if you find you are struggling to make payments make sure that you contact your lender at the earliest opportunity.
If you do fall behind on loan repayments you must again contact your lender straight away, ignoring the problem will not make it go away, and steps such as remortgaging your home and debt consolidation could be an option. Repossession should be the last resort.
If you are taken to Court or receive Court papers you should contact our Specialist Repossession Solicitors at the earliest opportunity as it maybe possible to save your home.

There is possibility that repossession can be stopped any time before your home is sold by a lender. If your financial situation improves let your lender know straight away.
