Mortgage Arrears Resolution Process


If you are suffering financial difficulties which are affecting your ability to repay your mortgage or if you know that a change in personal circumstances will impact on your future ability to make repayments, you should contact the Housing Department without delay.

It is imperative that you discuss the situation with DLRCC at the earliest opportunity and co-operate fully with the Council as failure to do so may result in legal action for re-possession of your property and legal costs associated with this which can be quite considerable.
