Hi Peter

The technical term for the arrangement you are seeking is a "Damages Based Agreement" or "DBA" for short.

These are more typically the preserve of large law firms and claims management companies. Most barristers operate a policy of "no-fee-no-me!".

The problem that you have is that your case will effectively be a test case in the English Courts. If you lose then you will also be liable for the other sides legal costs.

I'm not saying it will be impossible to find what you want but it will be like finding a needle in a haystack.

I wish you luck and please report back if you make any positive progress.

PS - I have requested Mark Smith (Barrister-At-Law) to comment on this thread.

I don't wish to sound overly pessimistic, the NI case is certainly going to be of some help to you so do keep plugging away until you find what you want.

Hi Mark
The Judge in the Northern Ireland case mentions a similar case bank of Scotland v Zinda it was of the Court of Appeal England and Wales,even my MP on informatIon i provided written for an explanation he recieved a reply that seems odd i am arranging a further meeting at his request.
Please believe nobody can make head nor tail of my paperwork its disgraceful error after error.
The simple fact is if i lived on mars you cannot (Double bill) its a con,you cannot use the same debt twice.
My case will bring in the 2006 fraud act on top of all the other stuff they have done,everything contridicts itself and evidence of blatent lying.
I will never stop and hopefully this may help to abolish the 1925 property law act.

Hi Mark
I contacted he housing rights in NI but they could not go into detail,but i asked them to congratulate the Attorney General who as brought the case to the police attention ,thats what i want to do.I know it all seems unreal but Chelsea were going BANKRUPT in 2009 they made drastic panicking errors hence there recent fines.How can a Lender not answer a simple question 5 years on.Because they know this will open mass claims for damages thats why its hush hush.I even think now i might be found floating in a canal i am 52 been in Busines all my life but this may end up bigger than ppi.My story would take a week to fully explain but they duped me to get the money back ,my arrears i calculate now were around £1500 for 4 properties ,i pay £ 20 a month and have done since 2010 for a debt / shortfall of £ 246,690 wouldnt your members be anoyed.i need to get on tv.

Hi Mark
I currently have a Mortgage expert looking at the paperwork and a conservative MP,
Moving forward what happened recently I received a letter from CBS which came from a lady who is answering all the letters I send to Chris Pilling CEO of Yorkshire Building Scociety.the lady clearly states that a sum of money I querried is in fact the arrears of 2008 which as been incorporated in the Contractural Mortgage Payment,but the said amount was never deducted from the separate computerised arrears figure,thus was used to make my payments over two months arrears so in there eyes made everything legal and according to the Mortgage Conditions correct so to somebody looking in it was perfectly ok .But when you look deep within its as clear as day they (DOUBLE BILLED)

Hi Mark
some people have mentioned the fact that because the case regarding the Bank of Scotland was won in Northern Ireland,it wasnt under English Law ,My argument for this is that whats good enough for the Irish should be good enough for the English,and the simple fact that using a mathmatical figure twice for two seperate issues on the same MORTGAGE cannot be legal,and think about this its the same as a Landlord using INTEREST on is TAX return then using The INTEREST AGAIN on is Capital Gains tax. (DOUBLE BILLING) .
