Report Purchasing A Repo in Northern Ireland Posted May 18, 2013 Update for anyone interested. The house has been repossessed, her indoors contacted the bank who confirmed this. On explaining our situation (i.e. would have bought the house before repo) and requesting information on how to make an offer the bank stated "they had no current plans for marketing the house". Gonna chance a letter to the bank head office and see what comes out of that, show we have a mortgage in principle and make an offer.
