Importantly, if your mortgage lender or landlord has served a notice against you, you should act quickly to stop the eviction. Here at (client name), we use N244 forms to apply for emergency court hearings, so that we can present the details of your case to a judge. Crucially, we attend on your behalf, explain the background persuasively and inform the court of all the necessary facts. Subsequently, the judge who hears your case will decide whether or not to suspend any eviction notice and halt the process that your lender has initiated.

If you are an owner-occupier with overdue mortgage payments or a tenant with rent arrears for your home, the threat of legal proceedings for repossession can be distressing. Whether initiated by the mortgage lender – usually a bank or building society – or by a public or private property owner, most homeowners and tenants find the official paperwork, nagging uncertainty and impending proceedings to be very unsettling.

Naturally, during these worrying times, you may be wondering how to stop the repossession of your home and ensure a decisive result that will give you some peace of mind. If you are facing legal action for non-payment of your mortgage or rent, read on – we are here to help. Here, we suggest what action to take and how to lodge an official application to the local county court using form N244 to stop repossession.

Notably, N244 online applications and paper forms are not straightforward. When submitting them to the court concerned, there are some key steps to follow. Above all, it is essential to present the paperwork correctly, completely and in ample time.

As the small print on eviction notices should mention, there must be adequate grounds to apply for a hearing. Merely stating that one has nowhere to go, for instance, is not a sufficient defence. Accordingly, we will assess your case, establish any grounds to stop the attempted possession and complete the N244 application on your behalf. Perhaps you now have a tenant occupying the property or expect a lump sum shortly, or your suspended possession order is now up to date. If you are seeking a new arrangement or plan to make a new proposal, the court will also request evidence of how you expect to pay the overdue amount. In preparation, we might recommend that you complete an N11M personal defence form.

Secondly, the information supplied on the forms must be concise yet comprehensive. In particular, it is vital to give the right amount of detail to achieve an early hearing, but not so much as to become a hostage to fortune.

Additionally, some emergency hearings take place within as little as twenty-four hours of applying. For this reason, we develop the best defence possible for your case before serving the papers. That way, you will be prepared for the hearing even if the court lists it at very short notice.

As a homeowner or tenant, an emergency hearing is the last opportunity you have to save your home without necessarily having to repay rent or mortgage arrears in full at the time. As a result, we will do everything in our power to support you at this vital point, secure a positive outcome and prevent the possible eviction.

Notably, low-income earners and benefit recipients may be entitled to fee remission, i.e. exemption from paying court fees.

Finally, should you not decide to contact us and then the hearing then goes against you, there is an appeals process. Before you rely on this, however, do bear in mind that such appeals are notoriously complicated and, therefore, best avoided. Instead, we suggest that you call us so that we can represent you from the outset and secure the right result, the first time. However, if you have already lost your hearing and need information about a possible appeal, please click here to obtain some immediate advice.

How to Stop Repossession

Make sure you talk to your lender

1. Don’t take emergency finance

Other companies may have misled you into believing that a bridging loan or short-term finance is your best or even only choice. That’s not true. The temporary relief will be short-lived when you are facing repossession for a much higher sum.

Try not panic and stay calm

2. Don’t accept a quick sale

In desperate situations, you may be tempted to accept a below-market-value “instant cash” offer on your home. Avoid quick sale companies at all costs—they profit from your misfortune. We can provide better options.

 Review household expenditure

3. Get us to help

We can help you navigate through your options. We will force your lender to give you time to make a decision that suits you. Our first step is to assess affordability for you to keep the property long-term. If this is not an option, then we will ensure you speak to regulated finance professionals or have time to sell your property on the open market.
