Money Marketing;9/10/2009, p22
The author presents the case of an elderly couple, which was failed by the inflexible rules of the mortgage rescue scheme in Great Britain. He narrates that the couple had financial problems and a housing dilemma when their lender took them to court with a repossession order. He notes that the repossession needed to be stopped but the housing association stated that they were not eligible for the mortgage rescue. He also mentions that the appeal to the housing association was rebuffed.
