The attachment order and summons was for the new property that I bought in another town after I sold the previous property where they delivered the Summons. How can I appear in Court and defend the matter if I never knew about the summons ? Is there now Law also under the National Credit Act that prescribes that a person must be Summonsed personally, I mean this is not a speed fine but a large amount and valuable property is involved ?
I have an arrangement with the Bank that they will not Auction the property as long as I continue with the monthly agreed repayments. In terms of the NCA I may re-take possession of the house if the arrear amounts are paid, is this correct ?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX solution is to get the arrears paid up asap. Have a good day I will do the rating.
