Much of the discomfort we see with mortgage loans has resulted from a discrepancy between the way clients expected their mortgage to work and the way it worked in real life. The majority of those who take out a mortgage have an inkling of how it works. Relatively few mortgage clients, however, have a great deal of insight into the technical details.
Many mortgage clients could not say in detail what the operational implications of changing their mortgage regime would be without first asking the creditor. Since a mortgage is usually granted for a large sum of cash, quite small changes - over the course of your life - can make a significant difference for you.
Thus, mortgage clients can sometimes end up with a very undesirable astonishment if they have not fully grasped what the implications of a modification would be. All the more so for clients who are in difficulties and have little opportunity. Sometimes we are frustrated that the mortgage provider did not make a major effort to tell his clients things when a issue or request first occurred.
It seems to us that in a number of cases, more efficient communications on the part of the creditor could have a priori avoided the occurrence of the complain. Soon after her husband's decease, Ms. C. contacted her home savings bank about her mortgage. A few years ago she had taken this out together with her husbands and was now considering settling the rest.
Bausparkasse had Mrs. C. wait some time before replying to her note, and she was completely puzzled about the information she had sent her. It was astonished to learn after consultation that the bausparkasse had at some point altered the mortgage's foundation and transferred it from pure interest to principal and interest.
Ms. C. was completely not aware that there had been a mortgage writ. It asked the Bausparkasse to state exactly what had occurred, but despite several further e-mails, it faced significant difficulty in obtaining further information. Ms. C. finally disbursed the remainder of the mortgage after having corresponded with the Bausparkasse for almost a year.
Complaining about the bad quality of services she had been receiving, the Bausparkasse consented that it had not handled its requests well. If she had immediately addressed her questions, she could have taken her point that she had disbursed the mortgage a year before. Therefore, it reimbursed the interest it had already repaid last year on its mortgage.
Mrs C., however, was still concerned about the matter, as the Bausparkasse had never exactly declared what had occurred to the mortgage. Said she had serious doubt about the way the mortgage had been managed. Claudia also informed us that she thought that the Bausparkasse had a general policies of changing mortgage agreements without the consent of her clients.
Bausparkasse's notes on the mortgage accounts showed that about a year before Mr C.'s passing, it had moved the mortgage from a pure interest rate to a principal and interest rate one. A few months before the amendment, Mr. and Mrs. C. had contacted the Bausparkasse about one of the life insurance companies that supported their mortgage.
These policies reached the end of their terms and we thought the mortgage lineup had probably been altered after the bausparkasse had wrongly interpreted what the pair said about the policies in their brief. We were able to persuade Mrs. C. that the Bausparkasse did not have a general mortgage transfer policies without the information of its clients, as sheeared.
The higher repayment rates had the effect of slightly decreasing the amount of the credit - something that would not have occurred on the same mortgage-base. Bausparkasse made an offer to reimburse Mrs. C. an extra 200 pounds for the discomfort she had suffered as a result.
For some time, Mr and Mrs A. had been in difficulties financially and had been heavily in default with their mortgage payments. Recognising that they had little real hope of paying back the mortgage debt, they accepted to give up their house. You gave the keys to the Bausparkasse and settled in with Mrs. A.'s mom.
As Mr and Mrs A. approached their bausparkasse, they affirmed that the sales had only recently been completed. However it explained to the pair that the earnings from the sale did not cover all their mortgage debts - so they still owe the home savings bank £6,300. You said it was inappropriate to require the Bausparkasse to repay the amount due.
You said it was the bausparkasse's responsibility that this did not occur - because it took so long to offer the home for selling. They were also worried that the bausparkasse had not notified them of the purchase of the real estate. Since the problems with the Bausparkasse could not be solved, Mr. and Mrs. A. sent the case to us.
Bausparkasse could not account for its delays in marketing the real estate. Their opinion that the Bausparkasse would have received a higher prize through the immediate sale of the home could not be confirmed. Some of the discontent of Mr and Mrs A arose from their belief that the interest on their mortgage debts would stop after the keys were given.
You had also been expecting the bausparkasse to get in touch with you and get your signature before it sells the home. As we stated, the transfer of keys to a mortgage-backed real estate does not in itself prevent the accrual of interest on the mortgage bank accounts. In addition, we stated that since the bausparkasse had returned its home of its own free will, it was not required to obtain its signature on the sales documents.
However, we did arrange with Mr. and Mrs. A. that the Bausparkasse should have notified them of the sales. We thought the bausparkasse should have gone to more of an effort to make sure they fully understand the impact of returning their keys. There was no agreement with Mr. and Mrs. A. that the Bausparkasse should take full charge of the deficit.
However, we made sure that the bausparkasse would return its interest rate subsidy bid, which Mr and Mrs A. had rejected when the bausparkasse first proposed it. It has been said that the Bausparkasse should also cut debts by 300 to reimburse Mr and Mrs A for the trouble they cause as a result of their bad communications.
Miss G.'s mortgage arrangements enabled her to make monthly incremental principal payments of up to £500 - without any fee. On January 2008 she resolved to make an incremental principal payment of 1,000 - and on 16 January she sent her creditor a check for that amount.
When she received her next mortgage extract, Miss G. approached her creditor to lodge a complaint. to overpay. Encouraged that the creditor had handled Miss G.'s payment in January 2008 properly, we were pleased that her £1,000 payment in excess immediately cut her interest. Miss G. was told this and we sent her a basic computation to show that the interest was handled properly and that the carry forward of balances on her February 2007 bank accounts was accurate.
It had been noted in their financial statements in March 2007, but we did not think that the accompanying cover note from the creditor sent with the declaration would have clarified the numbers as well as possible. After ten years of taking out a pure interest mortgage backed by a life insurance plan, Mr. and Mrs. W. suddenly came into some unexpected cash and chose to repay their mortgage.
Checking through their mortgage papers, they were alerted to the discovery that the capital life insurance that supports their mortgage had been established for a 20-year period. This mortgage itself had been agreed for a period of 25 years. Both Mr and Mrs W. complained to the creditor about "bad sales" on the ground that the conditions of the mortgage and the life insurance did not "match".
Documents indicated that Mr and Mrs W had probably requested the 25-year maturity, but there was no evidence that the creditor had consulted with them. Irrespective of why the conditions for the mortgage loans and the life insurance were different, the most important point, as we have seen, was that the distinction did not disadvantage Mr. and Mrs. W. in any way.
Only the interest on their loans was disbursed, so their payments on a regular basis would have remained the same, regardless of the maturity chosen. At the end of its 20-year life, the life assurance company was well on the way to producing enough to reimburse the mortgage overdue. Ms. M. had a mortgage from her local mortgage company, and because she could readily buy it, for many years she had been paying a much higher amount every single months than she had planned to do.
Someday, when she was in a local store of the local banks and took out some money, it came to her mind to ask how far she had come with her mortgage. Ms. M. resolved not to make any more mortgage payments for a while. It justified this by stating that the EIB would be able to take over its ability to make quarterly reimbursements from the accrued excess payments it had made over the years.
As this " funds " came to an end - the bench would probably inform it and it would then begin again with the repayment. Ms. M. expected that her mortgage net would remain at its effective levels until the resumption of repayment - to take account of the fact that she had "saved" so many prepayments.
Didn't tell the bench about her plans. Only a few short months after the decision to stop her regular payment, Ms. M. was given her yearly mortgage certificate. It had no further liaison from the bench to its mortgage until it got the next financial year. They were worried to learn from the explanation that their mortgage balances had risen.
and thought the bench must have made a big error. Asking the bench what had been happening, she sent her some computations that made no point. When she asked for an answer, the bench rewrote to her. It has still not been possible to tell why their equilibrium had improved.
Ms. M. re-established contact with the bench. On this occasion she was just informed that the situtation could have been prevented if she had asked to establish a official "payment holiday" on her current accounts. Said that the bench should have more difficulty in offering its advise on its mortgage overpayments - and thought that there would have been no improvement in its equilibrium if it had.
Ms. M. had not asked the bench how best to administer the excess payment on her mortgage balance. We have not, under these conditions, assumed that the institution is in any way obliged to provide its own independent advisory services. They had made certain hypotheses about what would happened to their mortgage if they ceased making them.
Unfortunately, she had never asked the banks whether her assumption was accurate. We didn't think that the bench could be reasonably held accountable for things not going as they should. We did, however, agree with Mrs M. that the Court had not handled her enquiries properly.
Her failure to give her a clear statement about the rise in mortgage credit - and her mention of "payment leave" had not help her understand the situtation. Mrs M., we said to her that, although the co-payments she made could be used to cover outstanding repayments in the near term, this did not prevent interest from being booked to the bank accounts as usual.
Thus, the mortgage credit rose over the course of the years, although it was always ahead with the redemptions. As we said, the bench was supposed to be paying Mrs T. GBP 100 to take account of the trouble she had suffered by explaining things incorrectly.
