Mortgage Express transfer to Rosinca Mortgages – anyone else?

My wife and I have just had a letter from Mortgage Express to say that our 11 Buy to Let loans are being transferred this month to Rosinca Mortgages a trading name of Topaz Finance ltd.

Our loans are on the beloved tracker rate. The letter states that the existing terms and conditions will not change.

Our LTV is sitting just below 60%, perhaps this is the level they can get to offload the loans ?

Anyone else had this letter yet?

Many thanks

Darrell

Hi Darrell,

I have not seen any, but it looks like these letters went out at the weekend.

I have found the relevant Mortgage Express page and added it above as an editors note.

Another of our Readers emailed me a scanned copy of one of these letters over the weekend. Nothing to worry about from what I have seen. The new lender is compelled by law to honour the original mortgage terms.

I suppose the worry is what general approach they might take - whilst remaining within the contractual parameters. It would be useful if anyone knows anything about the company.

Haven't received anything. I did write a couple of months ago asking if they were offering any discount for paying up the mortgage.

They replied saying "No scheme available at this time."

I cannot imagine what they could do that could be considered worse than the way UKAR treated some people.

Hi, yes i got a letter on Saturday too, my LTV's are also low so all 5 of them are transferring over to Rosinca, i'm not overly concerned though providing the original tracker rates are adhered to and no 'games' are played as with other lenders previously, there may even be some further borrowing potential with the new provider?....We'll see...

There was a lot of chatter a few years ago about possible discounts to get rid of the borrowers which never happened [to my knowledge]
However i would like to know if they have sold these loans at full value ?

So would I Darrell.

I would also like to know whether Rosinca will be doing any further lending and/or agree to second charges.

If they did purchase the book at a discount I think we can be fairly sure that they will be just as hungry for redemptions as UKAR were.

Yes. I also got this, but my LTV is now about 90-100% because of the fall (and non-recovery) in house prices in the north-east - was 70-75%. So I'm pretty worried as I can't easily sell or pay off.
