Successful negotiation avoids order for sale in mortgage arrears case

Contract & Commercial

29 November 2023

Nicole acted for the Defendant in a case where the mortgage company had requested an order for sale and money judgment in respect of mortgage arrears.

Nicole successfully negotiated an amended payment plan with the Claimant based on the Defendant’s affordability, which in turn avoided the need for a trial and the Defendant to give evidence.

An amended payment plan was entered into and the order for sale and money judgment were suspended.

Nicole communicated with the Defendants through an interpreter.
