    pre eviction reports

    Ocean Legal provide a service to mortgage lenders who due to arrears or other breach of mortgage conditions, have secured a possession order and are considering enforcement.
    One of our Field Agents will visit the borrowers in their own home and compile a report on their circumstances, which will include a full income and expenditure analysis and any proposal the borrowers are able to offer.
    We also identify any difficulties the Lender may experience in securing possession, reporting on access problems and the presence of children, tenants and animals. Should repossession appear inevitable to our Field Agent, they will explain to the borrower what happens next and talk to them about seeking alternative accomodation. In cases where a shortfall after sale appears likely, we will remind the borrowers of their obligations and try to obtain forwarding addresses and if instructed, proposals for the repayment of any shortfall.
