What triggered the claim? The Lender was approached by Mr M for a short term loan to be secured as a second charge against the Property he jointly owned with his mother, Mrs Y. Once the loan was complete, Mrs Y would relinquish her interest in the property and Mr M would become the sole owner. Mr M was living at the property with his wife and Mrs Y and confirmed that they would be letting the property out and produced a tenancy agreement to reflect this. 6 months later, Mr M defaulted on the loan. The lender discovered that not only was Mr M still living at the property, but Mrs Y alleged that she had no idea why the property was no longer in her name, that she didn't know the solicitors who had acted on her behalf and that she did not understand the documents Mr M had asked her to sign.
