Just rang KBC re my buy to let to see if included in sale. Was told that they didn't know but letters will issue in coming days to all affected. I asked who would be servicing these mortgages if my property sold on ..,was told Pepper would be servicing on behalf of Goldman Sachs. Have about 900 euro arrears on account but meeting full repayments for last few years. What should I do to ensure that I hold onto the property as I suspect I am included in sale. Was told all those with arrears and those restructured in the past are considered non performing even if up to date with payments so strong chance I am included. Property worth about 90k bought for €190 and balance remaining is €88k remaining term is about 11 years. Monthly repayments are €761. Advice appreciated.
Interest only till 2021, I didn't think they'd have the nerve to sell this after "error" for 5 years.
I'm taking an appeal, time up in April. If it's sold would Goldman Sachs leave me alone till
2021, or what tricks are available to them ?
I meant like, in theory they have to honour contracts,
but how does it really work? I don't understand the pitfalls
here, I want to sell in 2021, 3 years time. Would they try to
force a sale before that?
Brendan would they let sleeping dogs lie till then do you think ?
Got a letter from KBC recently to say my mortgage is being sold to Goldman Sachs and managed by Pepper.
Buy to let property rented out, was paying interest plus a small portion of capital, no arrears, costing me money every month so would be happy to sell it if they would write off the residual debt. Anyone know if they are likely to do that?
For those of you who received a letter from KBC regarding sale of mortgage please check paragraph one. The letter I received from KBC on 23rd August states: "We will write to you to confirm the date on which the transfer has taken effect". This does not give two months notice and my understanding from this statement is "we will notify you after the event" Under the Consumer Protection Code clause 3.11b they are obliged "to provide at least two months notice to affected consumers to enable them to make alternative arrangements". I have emails going over and back to them at the moment regarding the lack of notice in their correspondence. They had the audacity to state that the letter issued on the 23rd of August is being issued to customers to comply with clause 3.11 of the consumer protection code. I have sent numerous emails to them querying this and pointing out the misleading nature of their correspondence and I have also brought it to the attention of the Central Bank who are supposed to be the regulators, not sure if they will follow it up. Not sure if it is sheer incompetence with KBC or if there is something else going on in relation to the sale of these loans as they appear to be trying to mislead consumers with the terminology they are useing.
A letter from KBC regarding this 'transfer' arrived this morning - it is regarding our BTL mortgage (we also have a mortgage on our primary residence with KBC. We have a 5 year deal with KBC, which started May 2017 and this is being paid every month, however is interest only. The BTL property is in negative equity but we have been renting it out and our tenant is just moving out, allowing us to raise the rent as rents have gone up. Now we are wondering what usually happens with Pepper? Do they honor the agreements or will they look at everything afresh?
To follow on from my question, I guess we are just wondering what happens now? To add to this we were actually just looking at the option of moving in to the rental house, and renting out our primary residence, ie swapping. Some reasons for this include older kids have moved out so we don't need the space, rental house needs some work which we can not afford to do in one go but could have done over time while living there, smaller house = less bills, rental income from larger house would be more and allow us to start paying more to mortgage etc... We are now thinking that we have to stay put and keep everything status quo, do the smaller repairs that we can do right now and just rent the BTL out again as we don't know how these 'transfers' work and now we have 2 mortgage lenders? to deal with, negotiate with etc. I'm guessing it will not be possible to tell Pepper that we now want to live in the BTL house even if KBC agree to let us rent our house out...thanks for any thoughts
I haven't had time to do the case study yet but thought I would let you know what KBC told my husband on the phone this morning. He told them that we were considering moving into the BTL and they said that if we do move in we need to let them know asap, write to them telling them it is now our home and include 2 utility bills so that it can be excluded from the sale in November. They also said that the current agreement would be honored. I plan to ring again tomorrow, confirming and asking a few more questions to see if I get the same answers.
