| There are lots of reasons why the banks are writing off property debt here's 6 of those we encounter most often:
They don’t want to go to court: If you have had issues and missed mortgage repayments, you may have had letters from the bank or their solicitors. Regardless of what those letters say, taking you to court is the last thing the banks want to happen its expensive and they’re left with a property that they don’t want.
Banks don’t want to repossess: Repossessions are bad news for everyone. For the banks, they’re left with an empty property that may be vandalised and can be challenging to sell. They typically sell for 20% less than actual market value. If that sale price is less than what you owe, you still owe the bank the difference. The banks know they probably won’t get all their money back, but they still want to get as much money back as possible. They choose to work with us because as part of our process, we spend a lot of time and effort in marketing your property to achieve the best possible price.
It costs the bank money: Banks aren’t in the property business. They’re in the money business. So they need to pay people to sell properties, and that costs them money. In many cases, those properties that go to auction rarely achieve anywhere near the market price. Properties sold on the open market rarely achieve their market value.
Banks want the market to start moving again: People trapped in properties are bad news for everyone. You can’t move up the ladder so inturn people can’t get on the ladder and that affects the banks market for lending. Helping you to move on in a way that is acceptable for everyone, boosts the property market.
Its all about affordability: If you can no longer afford to make your repayments, the lender must take this into account. This is because they have a duty of care to you, their customer, and they must take into account your changing circumstances. In most cases, we can put together a proposal that suits your situation and is agreeable with your lender.
Banks want closure: They want proper closure, they want to know a recognised, licensed third party has adequately done everything. So they trust the team at Negative Equity NI to do exactly that. We achieve solutions that are agreeable to all.
How is home equity calculated?
Home equity is calculated by subtracting the amount you still owe on your mortgage from the current market value of your home.
Can you have negative equity?
Yes. With standard loans, your home equity will increase over time. With negative-amortizing loans — a loan with monthly payments less than the interest rates — your equity decreases over time as your owed balance increases.
Negative Equity NI brings everything together, in one straightforward process, doing the legwork and everything else it takes to deliver a solution that suits you and makes the bank happy too. Get debt help now!
