    Itís a bit confusing but a C and G mortgage was taken out. Some funds were put towards an investment with AA, no fees would ever need to be paid to the mortgage as the investments by AA would cover the mortgage. So it was basically a bundled thing. It was since discovered that C and G got commission from the referrals while claiming to be unrelated.

    Lots more online here and there https://www.independent.co.uk/money/sixty-pluses-nonplussed-by-cg-homes-scheme-caroline-merrell-on-the-plight-of-pensioners-whose-costs-1370383.html

    Long story short, the last statement says payment of £25k due by 1st Jan 2020 or they can sell it for whatever they want. I donít have too many details but is anyone else in the same boat? Itís a small number of people who signed up and I think my Nan might be the last surviving member of the sign ups.. and advice appreciated, please bear with me for details as itís not my knowledge base or my mortgage but grateful for help / advice... think best bet is to save for solicitors but never used one before and thereís about 100 litre box full of paperwork..any ideas on cost? 🙈 side not of a gagging order on her but as itís public domain it should not count? All a bit of a mess really! But Iím hopeful!

    That article was written 25 years ago.

    Are you saying this is the first this has come to light about your grandmother?

    There was a gagging order that has recently been breached.
