£85,000 saving for working family
Our clients in this situation were a working family with two young children.
They bought several investment properties before the crash, which had subsequently fallen into negative equity.
This was a huge financial burden on the family and they were struggling to maintain mortgage payments on all properties.
The couple appointed Bell & Company to negotiate the sale and final shortfall of the properties.
The property in question had been sold and the couple were left with a crystallised shortfall of £95,000.
After protracted negotiations and the cooperation of the lender, a full and final settlement of £10,000 was accepted.
The couple were understandably relieved as they can now move forward without this unaffordable debt hanging over them.
