Loan defaults create financial losers and winners, but the losses are highly concentrated in highly visible financial institutions while the winners are dispersed among millions of mortgage-holders that have been written down or written off. Here is a discussion how the subprime crisis has created winners and what it means for analysis of this unfolding situation. The sky must surely be falling on the financial sector. Reported or estimated subprime related losses have, since last summer, gone from $50bn, to $100bn, $200bn, $400bn, even $800bn. Let's call it $1 trillion, or even $2 trillion, just to be sure we catch most of ...
can grant the borrower the equitable right of redemption if the borrower repays the debt. While this equitable right exists, the lender cannot be sure that it can successfully repossess the property, thus the lender seeks to foreclose the equitable right of redemption. Other lien holders can also foreclose the owner's right of redemption for other debts, such as for overdue taxes, unpaid contractors' bills or overdue homeowners' association dues or assessments. The foreclosure process as applied to residential mortgage loans is a bank or other secured creditor selling or repossessing a parcel of real property ( ...

There is a lack of clarity about just how much the bank bailout will cost ordinary people. But based on recent news, the estimated costs are huge. The Irish Independent states that "Every man, woman and child in the State will have to pay an average of €2,000 every year just to service interest payments on borrowings to pay for the bank bailout, estimated to cost €40bn." In fairness, it's not clear that we have enough information to know that yet. If the banks raise their own capital we won't need to borrow as much. Also, if we part-recapitalise the banks out of the National Pension Reserve Fund ... market research, surveys and trends

US May home repossession hits record, defaults ebb
NEW YORK, June 10 (Reuters) - U.S. lenders repossessed homes at a record pace in May, although foreclosure activity slowed slightly as lenders tackled the backlog of distressed properties already in the system rather than pile on new defaults. However, a sustained turnaround in the pace of failing loans will be elusive without a meaningful improvement in the job market, the Irvine, California-based real estate data company said. Banks took control of 93,777 properties in May, a record, topping the prior record in April by 1 percent and spiking 44 percent from a year earlier. Every state saw more bank repossessions than a year ago. market trends, news research and surveys resources

Last month, there were 358 foreclosure-related actions in Mississippi. Those range from an initial notice of default to the actual loss and repossession of a residence by a lender. That's a drop of 17.5 percent in May 2009 and a 6.3 percent drop from April 2010. But last month's figures included 213 homeowners who lost their homes to a lender. Mississippi ranked 47th nationwide in foreclosures. Federal regulators on Thursday put in place new rules aimed at preventing a repeat of last month's harrowing "flash crash" in the stock market. Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission approved the rules, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Vehicle Repossession: Understanding the Rules of the Road

When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor or lessor has important rights that end once you’ve paid off your loan or lease obligation. These rights are established by the contract you signed and the law of your state. For example, if you don’t make timely payments on the ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

After car repossession, the lender might be able to accelerate, meaning the lender can require the borrower to pay off the entire balance of the loan in order for the borrower to get the vehicle back. The lender can sell the repossessed vehicle at auction. The lender might be able to sue the borrower for the deficiency if it sells the car for less than the borrower owes. This is true even in voluntary car repossessions. The lender cannot commit a "breach of the peace," for example, breaking into a home or physically threatening someone, in the course of a car repossession.
