I just came back to check if I had any replies to my question about loan application fraud, and no one has replied.
Can anyone suggest anything that I can do, at present the authorities are investigating the company that has gone into liquidation, but the banks are starting to hound us and one of the other couples involved has been given 10 days to vacate the premises.
I am so desperate, could anyone at Aussie legal suggest anything. The non bank lender is also under investigation, there are a few letters with the lender's owner's signature on them, but on the letterhead of the company in liquidation signing off as managing director of the company. I am sure that this is some sort of conflict of interest.
Also the solicitors acting for the lender were acting for us as well. On the mortgage contract we were asked to sign our rights away to obtaining our own legal advice because the mortgage broker told us that we didn't need it as their solicitors are acting on our behalf and plus it was only a mortgage document so it was all straight forward.
I cannot afford a solicitor, and am not sure if Legal Aid help in these situations. I will probably have to represent myself, which I am prepared to do as long as I am guided by someone.
Could we go to a court and request that a moratorium be placed on our loan so that the interest stops accumulating until this matter is brought before a Judge?
Your earliest reply to this matter is vital, I can only hope that someone out there might have an answer. My life is crumbling before me, and my family is suffering badly. I don't know what I will do if I lose my home, the home that we worked so hard to pay off, the place my kids know as their comfort. I know people out there might be saying, "serves you right", "why did you do it", "get rich schemes never prosper", but you know what? this was not a get rich quick scheme, it was actually quite a realistic way to make things happen, over a long period. Our problem was that we were too trusting. Even the high profile sportspeople that we caught in it were advised by their financial people that it was quite achievable.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone soon.
