Avoiding repossession in Scotland, selling or keeping your home

Quick Guide  Quick Guide An over

Avoiding repossession in Scotland and trying to keep your home can feel like a tall order.

Avoiding repossession in Scotland means acting quickly. If you're facing repossession in Scotland your lender will have started legal action in one of three ways.





Serving a calling up notice - gives you a maximum of two months to pay off the entire outstanding balance


Serving a notice of default - gives you a month to pay-off arrears.


Applying for a Section 24 notice - you will receive an initial writ and confirmation your lender is making an application  to the court to force repossession of  your home.


A key difference between the calling up notice and the notice of default is that a calling up notice asks the borrower to repay the whole loan rather than just make good the arrears.


In all cases, avoiding repossession in Scotland, means applying to the court for a section 2 order to have the action suspended unless you arrive at an alternative solution.



Avoiding repossession in Scotland and keeping your home...

However, the further into the process you get, the more your range of options narrow and the harder it is to avoid repossession. The longer you leave it the more likely you are to need specialist help - which can take a number of forms.


Avoiding repossession in Scotland means getting on with the things you can do to help yourself.

Hire a solicitor - seek legal advice at the outset and speak to one of the no-cost organisations like Shelter or CAB.

Communicate with your lender and try to agree an arrangement for paying off your arrears.

Find out how much you owe broken down into arrears,  any settlement, redemption or penalty charges and the balance of the loan.

Find out the current value of your property in case you decide its best to sell your home fast.

"I'd already left my house because I couldn't cope. Sell Your House Quick Help kept my lender off my back and bought my house quickly. I even got cash back in my hand."

Reaching the end of the road..Avoiding repossession in Scotland by selling your home.

If you feel you have exhausted all the options for stopping repossession on your own, the clock doesn't stop ticking. And giving up is a dangerous tactic. The consequences will follow you around for years to come.

Some people do give up - especially if they've already moved out of their property. However, this is a short-sighted approach, and you could well find yourself being pursued for a shortfall for years to come. This is because your lender may sell your property for less than you owe. So don't give up on avoiding repossession in Scotland.


If you're unable to pay-off your arrears or come to an arrangement with your lender finding a buyer you can sell your home fast to is ultimately the only way to stop repossession. Or the only way to clear debts quickly to get a fresh start.
