Court strikes out Twink repossession

A bid by Bank of Scotland to substitute Start Mortgages as the applicant in re-possession proceedings for the home of Adele Condron-King, otherwise known as Twink, was struck out by a judge yesterday.

Court strikes out Twink repossession

For two years, Bank of Scotland has been seeking to re-possess Idrone House, Idrone Avenue, Knocklyon, Dublin 16, but Judge Jacqueline Linnane was told the loan had been sold on by the bank to Start Mortgages.

The lender today asked the Circuit Civil Court to amend re-possession proceedings against Ms Condron-King and her estranged husband, David Agnew, to show Start Mortgages as the plaintiff and mortgage loan owner instead of Bank of Scotland.

The court heard BoS had already obtained an order from Dublin County registrar Rita Considine against Mr Agnew to serve him with papers about the proceedings at his place of work, the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama, 163 Rathmines Road, Dublin.

Mr Agnew’s name remains with Ms King’s on the mortgage as jointly responsible for the loan.

Counsel for BoS told the court Ms King had been served with notice of today’s proceedings by registered letter mailed to her on October 29.

Judge Linnane said that was not allowing Ms King enough time to respond.

The judge also said that an affidavit seeking to transfer Start Mortgages onto the proceedings as the new plaintiff had been sworn by a solicitor acting for Bank of Scotland.

The judge struck out Bank of Scotland’s application for change of title of the proceedings.
