Having the Rugg pulled out from under - 'MOT Check'!

Yet again another proposal which in reality is a complete farce. I can just see it now. An inspector with no qualifications, working for a private company, which also happens to have a maintenance arm has declared that a property is unsafe due to extensive damp. Sorry, I mean condensation. Where is the measuring stick and who marks it up??
Another blunt instrument with no link to the real world or any practical implications. I wonder what it is like to live in such an idealistic world.... Read More

MX have been crystalising losses since 2008. They do not have a target to make profit. Their only target is to close out the mortgage book and 'return' the money to the taxpayer. I assume they have already written off a lot of debt as toxic anyway, so anything more than 10% of the debt repaid is a job well done. They do not act as a business in the traditional sense so don't make rational decisions as a business would. They would not need to get a possession order in court as such. You will not get your day in court. They will instruct LPA's, who they will say are your agent, then the LPA will sell the houses on your behalf at a huge loss, probably to one of their friends, who will make a tidy profit. This sounds extreme I know, but I am not a pessimist, just a realist. Just type in CAG Mortgage Express LPA Receiver into Google.... Read More
