the worst thing you can do is ignore the lender and bury your head in teh sand. Speak to them and explain your situation and why you have got into the arrears situation. Are you able to change the term of your mortgage for instance to say 25 years which will bring hte payments down?
milesysgirl, really sorry to hear you are in this situation
I was ina similar position many years ago. You must phone your building society. They will help you come to some sort of arrangement with your repayments. They rarely ignore serious offers to pay back arrears. Whatever you do, don't ignore their letters as things will only get worse. Citizens advice bureau might be able to offer you advice or even do something pro-active on your behalf.
Sorry milesysgirl, yes I mean your mortgage lander. When I had a mortgage it was with a building society so just assumed....sorry. Do phone them though...if you are seen to be asking for help, they should help you.
will def ring them tomorrow thanks for your quick replies its much appreciated when something like this happens it makes you feel so crap im glad i posted though im new to mumsnet but will definately be a regular poster from now on hopefully not to much on the [depressed] thread though!!!
