    I have seen very low mortgage shortfall f&fs around 10%, which is probably what the mortgage adviser and the CAB were thinking of.

    However, that has always been in the scenario where someone has lost their only property and is now in rented accommodation with no way of repaying the whole sum in a reasonable period, but access to a small lump sum. The choices are then f&f or bankruptcy, which tends to focus the mind of the lender.

    Unfortunately your main property, with its equity, gives the lender more options.

    Hi Im really interested to know how this worked out. I am in the process of a voluntary repossession, 70k shortfall. I would be really interested to hear how things worked out for you (also in N.I).
