We have found through experience that a large majority of our clients invested in properties across Europe with specific reference to Spain during the property boom. These clients, like a large proportion of the population now either can no longer service repayments, no longer want the distressed property or like some have been left with a property in an unfinished development but feel trapped due to the burden of the massive Negative Equity- the property is only now worth a small proportion of what was initially paid.
Negative home equity puts the home-owner in a predicament if he or she is looking to sell. Prospective home buyers will only be able to secure a home loan for the current value of the home on the market, not for the amount that is owed by the lender. This limits the potential number of buyers for the property and can mean the buyer is “trapped” in the home if they cannot afford to repay the amount that is left owing.
This is where EU Property Solutions can help. We essentially help the client in Negative Equity to sell their home in Negative and Provide options and strategies to write off the mortgage or settle the debt for a minimal amount with the lender.
