Twink in mortgage promise

Adele King, better known as Twink, hopes to be able to resume full monthly mortgage repayments on her home which is under threat of repossession by a bank, a judge was told yesterday.

Barrister Shaula Connaughton-Deeny told the circuit civil court that a solicitor on behalf of Ms King and her estranged husband, musician David Agnew, had contacted the bank with proposals to renew full repayments.

Ms Connaughton-Deeny, who appeared with Clodagh Buckley of solicitors Ivor Fitzpatrick and Co for the bank, said Ms King indicated she was agreeable to the name of Bank of Scotland, on possession proceedings against her and her husband, being changed to Start Mortgages which had taken over the mortgage debt.

The court has been told that the couple’s mortgage on their former home, Idrone House, Idrone Avenue, Knocklyon, Dublin 16, remains in both their names.

Following difficulties in serving Mr Agnew with the legal proceedings, Judge Jacqueline Linnane last year granted leave for him to be served at his place of work, the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama, at 163, Rathmines Rd, Dublin.

Ms Connaughton-Deeny told Judge Linnane yesterday that Ms King had contacted the bank’s solicitors last Wednesday with proposals of how to deal with the outstanding arrears.

Judge Linnane adjourned the possession proceedings against the couple until October and directed that Start Mortgages be substituted as the plaintiff bank in the proceedings.

She directed that full information including updated arrears be provided to the court by then. In documents lodged earlier in court, it was stated that, as of August 2013, the bank was owed €244,000, including just over €11,600 arrears at that time.
