Von Daniken given the chance to reclaim home

She was due to appear at King&#39s Lynn County Court last Thursday to appeal against the repossession she says was a result of the mortgage falling into arrears after she was defrauded by her former partner. She managed to get this adjourned with the help of solicitor Ahmad Butt from the Mary Ward Legal Centre.

Solicitors for MPLC (trading as Mortgages 4 Ltd) Jeffrey Green Russell faxed a letter to the court and Von Daniken which states: “…they consent to the appeal being adjourned to the first open date after 28 days… The above has been agreed to allow Ms Von Daniken to redeem the existing loan to Mortgages PLC and the property to be transferred to her name.”

Von Daniken is now negotiating a remortgage with another lender within that 28-day time limit.
