    PRELUDE: Southern Pacific Mortgage Ltd, Preferred Mortgage Ltd, Southern Pacific Personal Loans Ltd, London Mortgage Company Ltd(whose mortgage loans were bought by SPML).

    These 4 ‘lenders’ are all part of the Lehman Bros bankruptcy.

    SHORTFALL: When a borrower has been repossessed and/or evicted, Acenden Ltd(Capstone) then begins the process of effectively, ‘asset stripping’ the borrower from any if not all of the equity in their home. It does this through, what are known as ‘Asset Management’ companies such as Countrywide, Spicer Haart et al. Invariably, this ‘asset stripping’ results in a shortfall in the final settlement figure, payable to SPML/SPPL/PML/LMC thru Acenden.

    PROCESS: This is done through the process of charging ‘multi-level fees/charges’, through Acenden, whilst Acenden continue to levy post repossession/litigation fees, continuation of monthly loan+arrears+interest fees until the property is sold etc. Most borrowers will already well aware of the extortionate charges which are referred to, from Acenden (Capstone) Ltd.


    The Fees/Charges post Repossession/Eviction:
    1) Acenden Ltd has contracts with several ‘Asset Management’ companies, 2 of the largest are Countrywide and Spicer Haart. Once instructed, on the day of the eviction or other, the locks will be changed, inventory taken, the property cleaned etc and then it will be marketed through a ‘local’ estate agent.
    The charges vary from £650+vat to those in excess of £2500+ by these companies, the cost of which is then passed onto the borrower, by Acenden.

    In addition Acenden pays these companies 1%+ (plus VAT) of the final selling price, once your home is sold. Again, that cost is charged to the borrower, by Acenden.

    2) Acenden then say they get at least 2 ‘independent’ valuation from surveyors, to set the market price. One of the valuations is a ‘local’ estate agent.
    The ‘local estate agent’ will ‘market’ your property and you will be charged 1.5%+ (plus VAT) of the final sale price for doing so.

    3) If no offers are accepted by Acenden within say 60 days, Acenden then will drop the price, which further reduces the equity in the property and no doubt increases the shortfall to the borrower. All during this period, monthly loan payments+arrears+interest+’litigation’ fees+’monthly repossession’ fees are continually being added.

    4) If the property is sold, in addition to the charges above, you will be charged by Acenden’s solicitors(Rosling King, Lightfoots, TLT etc) for the conveyance.
    This charge for the conveyance, will £600+ (plus VAT), passed onto you by Acenden.

    5) The valuation of your property by Acenden’s ‘asset managers’, such as Countrywide as being ‘independent’ is somewhat dubious to say the least. Many borrowers are aware that their homes have been undervalued when marketed. One reason is that Countrywide, uses its ‘local estate agent’ Bairstowe Eves., however Bairstowe Eves is a subsidiary of Countrywide.

    The REAL owners of your SPML/PML/SPPL/LMC mortgages: the 'Special Purpose Vehicles or Entities' (SPVs/SPEs).

    ALL are wholly independent PLCs. There are 35 SPVs, who actually own your mortgage loans, here is one below;

    above is the Investor & Waterfall Reports for EUROSAIL-UK 2007-6NC PLC

    the Investor Report shows in detail all of the payments received by the SPV from the borrowers.
    the Waterfall Report shows where all the principal & interest payments received by the SPV, are then paid out to the noteholders/investors.

    SPML/PML/SPPL/LMC own NOTHING!, when your mortgage loan was sold to the PLCs, they DID NOT register their legal titles/charges with HM Land Registry.

    the reports will be analysed in detail in due course.

    Here is a classic example of when your mortgage loan is securitised, all the FSA MCOB rules and Pre-Action protocols are violated, as the SPV in its original Mortgage Sale Agreement(MSA) & Administration Agreement DOES not allow loan modifications. Below, the SPV has been authorised by the parties(namely the noteholders/investors) to ammend the MSA, so as to allow borrowers loans to be modified.
    note that a 'loan arrangement' is not a modified loan, which is one where a switch to say interest only, extended length of loan, etc as per the Pre-Action Protocols. Terms which exclude rights of consumer forebearance, can be deemed unfair as stipulated in UTCCR 1999 5(1).

    THE SPVs donot allow loan modifications, as stated in their prospectus, if done it is by exception- see previous SPV Investor Report for Eurosail 2007-1 NC PLC, where there were only 88 loan modifications out of 12,924 mortgages in that pool.

    Residual Certificates: ISIN XS0272306019
    Terms used and not defined in this notice shall have the same meanings given thereto in the Glossary set out in the Prospectus dated 31 October 2006 relating to the Instruments referred to above.
    The following amendments have been made to the Mortgage Sale Agreement dated 31 October 2006 and amended on 21 December 2006 (the Mortgage Sale Agreement) and the Servicing Agreement dated 31 October 2006 (the Servicing Agreement).
    The parties to the Mortgage Sale Agreement and the Servicing Agreement have consented to amendments which permit the Servicer to agree, acting as a Prudent Mortgage Lender and subject to certain conditions and limitations set out below:
    (a) to convert a Loan between any of these three types of mortgages: Interest-Only Loan, Repayment Loan and Part and Part Loan upon a request by a Borrower; and
    (b) to extend the maturity date of a Loan upon a request by a Borrower provided that the new maturity date is a date which is not less than 2 years earlier than the Final Maturity Date.
    The definition of "Converted Loan" has been amended to apply not only in respect of Loans which are converted from one loan type to another but also to include Loans in respect of which the maturity date is extended (as described above).
    Conditions
    The Servicer may agree to convert a Loan into a Converted Loan, provided that:
    the Servicer, acting as a Prudent Mortgage Lender, believes in good faith that the current monthly payments cannot be met by the Borrower due to a change in circumstance affecting the ability of the Borrower to make timely payments;
    the Servicer obtains a duly completed income and expenditure form from the Borrower plus proof of new income or new circumstances, as applicable;
    the Borrower is not more than one monthly payment in arrears at the time the Servicer agrees to the conversion;
    as far as the Servicer is aware, the Borrower is not in material breach of any of the terms and conditions of the existing Loan to which the Converted Loan will relate other than as permitted under paragraph (c) above;
    the ratio of (i) the total amount of arrears to (ii) the new monthly payment is less than 2;
    the Servicer, acting as a Prudent Mortgage Lender, believes in good faith that the Borrower will be able to consistently meet the new monthly payments;
    the Servicer has agreed to the conversion following the request of a Borrower;
    all other terms of the Loan (including the interest rate) remain unchanged; and
    if a Loan has a remaining term to maturity of less than 10 years, the term to maturity is simultaneously extended to at least 10 years (provided always that the new maturity date is a date which is not less than 2 years earlier than the Final Maturity Date).
    Limitations






    If the conditions above are satisfied, the Servicer may only convert such Loan if the Calculation and Reporting Agent has confirmed to the Servicer and the Issuer that the conditions set out below have been satisfied in relation to each Loan in the Mortgage Pool which becomes a Converted Loan:
    • upon conversion of a Loan, the aggregate balance of all Further Advances Loans, Converted Loans (excluding any Loans in respect of which the conversion has been reversed), Substitute Collateral Loans and Substitute Loans contained in the Mortgage Pool does not exceed 10% of the aggregate principal balance of the Loans in the Mortgage Pool on the Issue Date;
    the aggregate balance of all Loans which have been converted (excluding any Loans in respect of which the conversion has been reversed) is less than the Conversion Allowance as at the immediately preceding Interest Payment Date; Conversion Allowance has been defined to mean the sum of the amounts in respect of each Interest Period equal to 0.5% of the aggregate principal balance of the Loans in the Mortgage Pool on the Issue Date. The Conversion Allowance will accrue from the Issue Date and will accumulate if not used;
    the aggregate balance of all Loans which are in arrears and which are converted in any given Interest Period is equal to or less than 0.75% of the aggregate principal balance of the Loans in the Mortgage Pool on the Issue Date;
    the aggregate balance of all Loans which are converted in any given Interest Period is equal to or less than 1% of the aggregate principal balance of the Loans in the Mortgage Pool on the Issue Date; and
    no Enforcement Notice which remains in effect has been given by the Trustee under the General Conditions.
    Copies of the amendment agreement in respect of the Mortgage Sale Agreement and Servicing Agreement which contains the full terms of the amendments referred to above may be inspected at the registered office of the Issuer and at the Stated Office of the Principal Paying Agent and the Irish Paying Agent.
    These changes are effective as of 3 February 2009.

    Hi Tuttsi

    Yes, we took out a 2nd charge loan with this fraudulent evil company in 2006, which was then Capstone now Acenden (SPPL). The loan was for £100.000 plus a PPI of £17.500, which we never asked for.
    Unfortunately, about 2 years later, my husband who is self-employed had reduced hours, whilst I suffered bullying at work, which then resulted in me leaving my job.
    We asked Capstone for interest only payments, which they flatly refused.
    There were several suspended court orders until the final eviction notice in July 2010. By the way, we had a buyer for the property in March 2010, which they obviously knew but they still went ahead with their repossession, part of their profit stream.
    I had lived in the property since 1980, but on receiving the SAR, I noticed that their 'shortfall' of approx £64.000 was added. Profit stream once again.
    In October 2010, they had their own 'buyer' for the property which was 'sold' for £100.000, then 2 months later it went on the current market for £180.000.
    This is just typical of their illegal antics, and getting away with it. Whilst other banks have been heavily fined by their inflated charges and fees. Capstone's charges on top of the arrears were horrendously higher. The FSA are aware of this, but do nothing about it.
    My case was highlighted in the Mail on Sunday (September 26 2011).

    Corporate Manslaughter ?


    " Capstone [ACENDEN] Responsible For My Father’s Death
    I have just had some sad news over the weekend, two days prior to our court hearing; my father died of a heart attack when he went to bed, and I blame Capstone because he has had two strokes and collapses in the last two months, due to the stress that Capstone have put on our family and especially my mother over £3000 that Capstone lost. His condition has worsened over the last three months and he had a serious collapse in January and another one when he came out of hospital just at the start of February. Capstone knew about his first collapse but they did not stop the pressure only turned it up demanding all sorts of ridiculous information and evidence be sent to them within 7 days, the week of his stroke. They did that on purpose and we refused them, as we had other things to do. We have had to organise all sorts of care for him at home and having just got that in place; I believe as he could not take any more strain, and due to the stress caused by Capstone, my father died; two days prior to the hearing.
    I asked them to suspend the hearing and they have not had the courtesy to even respond to our two emails and call informing them of my father’s death. They have not even asked for a copy of the death certificate, and the court have also been informed and expressed their concerns and regret. The hearing was yesterday and thankfully I was actually too exhausted to go or I would have sought out the press and put Capstone in the headlines. I am contemplating a serious litigation and informing the press as this is a direct result of the pressure that Capstone have put us under. They will not get away with this and I will make sure that they do not get one single penny of the £10,000 in missing payments that they have lost or the costs and charges that they continue to pile onto the account even though we are keeping up an agreed payment of £383.00 on the account. The DWP also make up the balance of the contracted payment and they get something to the arrears. They have promised to suspend if they have an agreement on the account, but have not yet done so. I have sent the evidence for this to the court, but I have no idea if this will be taken into consideration or if the court will actually give a damn. Capstone can go to hell and if they try to take the house again, that is exactly were I will send them.
    We are putting the house on the market after Easter, but Capstone will not be the first to get paid! I am taking the arrears and the missing payments of it and they can come and find us. I have had enough of these bandits and I am going to make them pay, just were it hurts the most in their lying reputation and in their pockets. "

    Anybody requesting a Subject Access Request(SAR) should send it to the SPV(Eurosail/Southern Pacific Securities etc), directly for the attention of the DATA CONTROLLER.
    Donot send it to Acenden, they donot own your mortgage.

    Include a request for the INVOICES of their legal fees(your 'litigation fees') charged to Acenden by their lawyers(TLT,Lightfoots,Rosling King etc). The costs of the litigation against you are in these invoices, and its is your right to have them under the DPA 1998. Once you have them you can see the extent of the fraudulent billing, which is passed on to you. This includes, 'double billing' of time, unaccounted time(just 'block' time), costs added when a judge has ordered 'no order for costs' in a hearing etc. This is the unseen crime, and a swift complaint to the Solicitors Regulatory Authority should be made upon receipt of the copy invoices.

    If the SPV fails to deliver ALL your docs, through the SAR, report the SPV to the Information Commissioner's Office(ICO) via online complaint. They are on notice of any violations in the non-disclosure of YOUR data by these SPVs.

    Have you managed to put the case on hold?

    How can Acendon take you to court when they do not actually own the mortgage when one of these comapanies like Eurosail/Southern Pacific Securities do.

    This is really a matter for the police or some other body to look at the fraud aspect of this case and many others like yours.

    I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you can resolve this matter as right now you need to mourn the passing of your father and you should not have to worry about this.

    well Snake what a fantastic Thread you have started here it has so much information that can help so many people. I have been a victim of these barstewards since 2007 and been fighting them off ever since. I empathise totally with everyone who has a loan with them but it is so frustrating trying to get people to listen especially the regulators.
    I have just got my decision from the ombudsman and he doesnt even adress half of the issues and this complaint has been ongoing since 2007 nightmare.

    Wells Fargo Slapped With $3.1 Million Fine For 'Reprehensible' Handling Of One Mortgage

    Posted: 04/ 9/2012 2:57 pm


    A federal judge who has fiercely criticized how big banks service home loans is fed up with Wells Fargo.
    In a scathing opinion issued last week, Elizabeth Magner, a federal bankruptcy judge in the Eastern District of Louisiana, characterized as "highly reprehensible" Wells Fargo's behavior over more than five years of litigation with a single homeowner and ordered the bank to pay the New Orleans man a whopping $3.1 million in punitive damages, one of the biggest fines ever for mortgage servicing misconduct.
    "Wells Fargo has taken advantage of borrowers who rely on it to accurately apply payments and calculate the amounts owed," Magner writes. "But perhaps more disturbing is Wells Fargo's refusal to voluntarily correct its errors. It prefers to rely on the ignorance of borrowers or their inability to fund a challenge to its demands, rather than voluntarily relinquish gains obtained through improper accounting methods."
    The opinion reflects Magner's disgust with tactics that Wells Fargo used to fight the case -- and perhaps frustration with an appeals court ruling in a separate, but similar case, that overturned her order that would have forced Wells Fargo to audit and provide a full accounting for more than 400 home loans in her jurisdiction.
    As The Huffington Post previously reported in a story co-published with The Center for Public Integrity, sources familiar with the preliminary findings said that the bank made costly accounting errors in the administration of practically all of those loans.
    In an emailed statement, Tom Goyda, a Wells Fargo spokesman said: "The ruling handed down by the court in an individual bankruptcy case covers allegations going back more than six years and ignores significant changes in servicing practices that have occurred since that time. We believe that there are numerous factual and legal problems with the opinion and are reviewing our options regarding an appropriate legal response."
    Goyda said that an appeal of the ruling is "one option" the bank is considering.
    Despite widespread reports that the banks and other companies that service home loans engaged in a range of misconduct -- from ordering unnecessary property inspections to misapplying payments in a way that can lead to wrongful foreclosure -- few judges have had the time, ability or inclination to do the kind of forensic analysis necessary to uncover wrongdoing in individual cases. For a non-accountant, reading a loan history is like interpreting hieroglyphics without a Rosetta Stone, and banks are often reluctant to turn them over in the first place.
    The exceptions have tended to come in federal bankruptcy courts, where justices typically have more time to dig into loan accounts, and are much more likely to have the financial expertise necessary to do so. In an earlier interview, Magner said that she analyzed the loan files of more than 20 borrowers in her court and found mistakes in every instance.
    "These are loans of working-class people who bought homes they could afford and whose loans were not administered correctly from an accounting perspective," she said. "I think that these types of problems occur in almost every [defaulted] loan in the country."
    The current case involves Michael Jones of New Orleans. In a 2007 decision, Magner ruled that Wells Fargo improperly charged Jones more than $24,000 in fees, owing to a fundamental problem in the automated methodology the bank used to account for his loan payments.
    After Jones fell into default, Magner ruled, the bank improperly applied his mortgage payments to interest and fees that had accrued instead of to principal, as required by his servicing contract. This triggered a waterfall of additional fees and interest that consumer lawyers call "rolling default." Later, after Jones applied for bankruptcy, the bank continued to misapply payments, according to Magner's opinion.
    In the most recent opinion, Magner describes Wells Fargo's litigation tactics, which involved filing dozens of briefs, motions and other filings that slowed down the proceedings to a snail's pace, as "particularly vexing." The tactics suggest that any other borrower who might wish to contest a fee or charge would find a legal challenge to the bank simply too burdensome.
    And yet, Magner writes, it is only through litigation that the abuses can be uncovered. Calling Wells Fargo's conduct "clandestine," Magner wrote that the bank refused to communicate with Jones even as it was misdirecting payments for improper purposes.
    "Only through litigation was this practice discovered," Magner writes. "Wells Fargo admitted to the same practices for all other loans in bankruptcy or default. As a result, it is unlikely that most debtors will be able to discern problems with their accounts without extensive discovery."
    Magner wrote that the bank still refuses to come clean with homeowners about mistakes it made in the accounting of home loans. This is particularly troublesome in her district, where more than 80 percent of the borrowers who file for bankruptcy have incomes of less than $40,000, and consequently are often unable to hire the kind of legal firepower necessary to counter Wells Fargo's army of lawyers.
    "[W]hen exposed, [Wells Fargo] revealed its true corporate character by denying any obligation to correct its past transgressions and mounting a legal assault ensure it never had to," Magner wrote.

    and 'HOW' they repossess YOU: organised theft & fraud: the US Judge, above, was one step short of calling it that?

    the link below, and the methods used by Acenden will be familiar to Acenden borrowers, who are in arrears or have been repossessed. please read the whole page, their tactics are disturbingly close to those used by US Lehman owned ACENDEN here in the UK.

    The path toward losing your home to this scam is actually quite simple. The first phase is designed to fabricate the default, and typically begins with one, or a combination of ways to arm the servicer's records with false data:

    When the servicer decides to manipulate the date the payment is received in order to artificially
    create a late payment.

    When the servicer applies part of the payment to something other than principal and interest and
    creates a partial late payment or deficiency.

    When the servicer decides to "force place" an insurance policy on the property by claiming the homeowner has not provided proof of insurance.

    Default Re: Escape from ACENDEN Capstone

    What I want to know is there a uk solicitor out there that is willing to take on a case against acenden and the rest of the parties involved in the securitisation of these loans.

    Because I would do it tomorrow!

    I can not see why we can not take them to court under contract law, using the reasons that on signing the agreement the borrower was not made aware that should they fall into arrears that their rights and remedies would be restricted because of the securitisation agreements between the other parties to which the borrower was unaware at the time of signing.

    surely there is something in this, if a company knowingly omitts important infomation that affects the borrowers rights and remedies, this can not be a fair contract???????
    Please help me someone with more knowledge of law than I have, because this is really bugging me. thank you.
