At a push you'll probably be able to borrow from one that specialises in bad credit mortgages, but this will cost you considerably more.

If your lender sold your home for less than you owed on your mortgage plus interest and sale fees you can expect it to come after you for the shortfall.

According to the law in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, lenders have up to 12 years to start chasing you for the outstanding amount.

But those that are members of trade body The Council of Mortgage Lenders adhere to a voluntary agreement to act within six years.

In Scotland, lenders must usually act within five years.

But no matter where you live in the UK, if it's thought fraud was involved, there's no time limit for beginning recovery action.

And, whether your financial difficulties were your own fault or not, once your former lender has begun the chase to recover its money, there is no limit on how long it can keep after you.

Does the next of kin have to pay off a mortgage when the borrower has deceased?

Whoever inherits the house would need to either pay off the mortgage or refinance the house to take ownership of the house. The debt is not paid--unless the deceased had mortgage insurance--and the lien is still due. Of course, the house could be put up for sale, but only if payments are current and not in foreclosure.

What happens if the first mortgage is current but you are in default on the second mortgage?

You are still likely to have a foreclosure problem, since the collateral is your house. You need to get more information about what can be done. These days, you may be able to refinance into one loan, even if you are underwater. At the new rate, you may be able to afford your payments.
