Hi Brand,Each lender will take a different view on this, so I can only give general advice.Contact your lender and speak to the team that deals with people in financial difficulty.Explain your situation and what you are hoping they will agree to.You could offer a payment plan for the remaining £15K. As you have not missed any payments of £400.00 per month for the past 10 years, then they may consider this.They will either agree or they won't.If they do not agree, you could sell the property for £85K and then you would owe them £15K. They would likely come after you for the debt and then you could try and arrange a payment plan with them at that stage.Hope that helps?

For what it is worth, Nick and I have been over to Belfast twice to visit LDA/NE.I can confirm that they are a very professional and caring operation and, being FCA regulated, they have to operate to very high standards and their advertising would have to be truthful.You should take comfort from the fact that they are the only FCA regulated company in the UK for this type of work. I believe it took them about 18 months to get their FCA accreditation.Please let us know how you get on.
