Written answers (Question to Finance)

I have been advised by the special liquidators that letters have been sent to all residential mortgage holders to notify them that normal mortgage payment services will resume in time for the next scheduled Mortgage Loan payment in March 2013. The letter also notifies the mortgage holders that they have until 30 April 2013 to make payment of the missed February 2013 payment that was not processed as normal as a result of the appointment of the Special Liquidators. The special liquidators have also indicated that the missed payment will be processed at no additional cost, penalty or expense to the mortgage holder provided payment is made by 30 April 2013.
