Abhaile Case Studies - Joan's Story
I had been struggling with my mortgage for around 4/5 years after taking a huge pay cut at work, to say I was stressed was an understatement, I couldn’t remember the last time I slept properly or was really relaxed and happy.
I was at a friend’s house having dinner and she was also struggling with her mortgage after separating from her husband. She mentioned she had had a few meetings with MABS and couldn’t recommend them enough.
I then contacted MABS myself and was put in touch with a lovely lady - Mary. It was on the phone the first couple of times, as I needed to get copies of a few things, such as bank statements, mortgage statements and all the correspondence from my lender.
When I met MABS in person, even after the first meeting I felt a lot of the stress easing away as MABS dealt directly with the bank on my behalf, which put an end to all the letters telling me I owed arrears dropping on my door mat, that in itself was a huge thing because the letters weren’t nice and were very upsetting to read.
After 3 meetings with MABS, and thanks to all their amazing work, the bank restructured my mortgage, and offered me monthly payments that I could afford, I have been paying the new amounts now for the last few months and can’t believe that I am now sleeping the complete night and even have money in my pocket for things for the kids and stuff.
I really can’t thank MABS enough for their amazing work, they are professional and compassionate and they do an amazing job.
