WE HAVE launched a Repossession Advice Pack with practical advice for homeowners worried about meeting their mortgage repayments.
The pack gives step-by-step advice to households who fear that they may not be able to keep up their monthly mortgage payments, and tells people how to avoid making their situation worse. It can be downloaded from http://tinyurl.com/housingadvice (PDF file).
This new Conservative initiative comes as the latest official Government statistics show a large increase in mortgage repossession orders being made by the courts - with 313 being issued across the country every single day.
As the recession bites and the number of repossessions soar, there are thousands of people across Harrow who are worried about paying their mortgage. I hope this advice pack will provide them with some practical help and support.
