I am aware of two Mortgage Express / UKAR borrowers who received a letter this weekend calling in their loans, an extract of the letters, which are both identical, can be found below. In both cases the properties had been purchased using instant remortgages, i.e. the property had been purchased for cash or with bridging finance and instantly remortgaged based on opem market value to Mortgage Express.Mark Alexander

Mortgage Express UKAR calling in instant remortgages

These are the first cases I have seen where Mortgage Express have called in performing loans on these grounds. However, I have acted as a professional witness on a number of occasions in Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunals and in cases where Mortgage Express have commenced litigation against solicitors, both scenarios relating to instant remortgages. In all cases I have been involved in so far the Solicitors Regulatory Authority have ruled the solicitors were acting in accordance with accepted protocols at the time and none of the litigation cases I have provided witness statements regarding instant remortgages have progressed to Court.

I will be working as a private consultant alongside Cotswold Barristers and https://www.litigationwarranty.co.uk/ in the role professional witness regarding Mortgage Express practices relating to instant remortages (AKA same day remortgages) where required.

If you have received a similar letter to the one above please get in touch using the enquiry form below.

Hi Mark. know of lots of instances where receivers sold too soon a few years ago resulting in a shortfall, aggravation, bankruptcy etc.

If they decide to call in for whatever reason and put them with receivers, obviously it's less preferable than having control yourself, but against the backdrop of a strong housing market (in London where I work) the chances are they will reduce the outstanding loan and sell at a reasonable price. This results in a surplus for the owner who while didn't want to sell, at least pockets something with no iva etc. Cheap repos don't exist anymore.

And a surplus preferable to a shortfall.
I have a few with receivers and while I'd prefer to have control over my finances and planning, I know that their values now far exceed their loans.
On that note, do you know of any instances where they'll return the properties to the owners?

It depends on why they are in receivership, the LTV and whether all arrears have been cleared.

Apologies if this is sidetracking the thread, completely different circumstances, but I found UKAR's 'Repossession is always viewed as a last resort' claim quite amusing;

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/tom-crawford-angry-protesters-clash-5991478

UK Asset Resoultion Limited, the holding company acting on behalf of Bradford and Bingley, confirmed they had evicted Mr Crawford from the property....

"Repossession is always viewed as a last resort and follows a series of forbearance options, with the aim of finding a solution that takes account of the customer's specific circumstances.

Received a letter today from Ukar saying I now have a relationship manager and he is going to contact me to make an appointment in order to see if he can help me! I have 2 btl with MX and they are not in arrears and currently sit at about 70% Ltv I'm thinking under no circumstances should I talk to this person what do you think?

I've received the same letter.

I will explain that I'm too busy to chat when I receive the first call, then block the number and see what happens after that.
