For the third time now the government in the form of UK Asset Resolution are issuing repossession proceedings against me, as I am unable to pay my mortgage:
This is my modest house – one up, one down, one down and a bit on the side. It is small, quirky, suits me and is my home. I’m 61 and had hoped it would be my last home. I moved to Hastings from London to downsize after being sacked for blowing the whistle on a £1bn fraud by HSBC. To date have forced HSBC to repay £4m – there is still at least £100m for them to repay and I continue to fight. I know I’m lucky to have a house these days but I used to have a good job and have now lost everything. I’m determined not to lose my home just because I was honest and none of the fraudsters have received any sanction whatsoever.
However, I am on benefits, unable to work and unable to pay my mortgage in full because the benefits don’t cover it. Therefore, every so often (about once a year) I have to turn to my fantastic supporters for help and have twice now fought off repossession proceedings. My home is owned by the government, UK Asset Resolution, and they are determined to repossess me, despite my having explained my situation many times. NRAM have told me that it is in the taxpayers’ interest to repossess me but if I was made homeless the DWP would have to pay up to twice my mortgage payments for rented accommodation.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated, personally acknowledged and recorded in the book I am writing about my fight, unless you specifically ask not to be included.
Thanks again for all help. It is a team effort and we will triumph. Eventually.
