What Are Non-Performing Loans (NPLs)?
2 May 2023 • 3 min read • by Tom Miskelly
If you’re wondering what an NPL actually is – then you’ve come to the right place.
NPLs stand for non-performing loans. A standard loan becomes an NPL when borrowers stop repaying a loan they have taken out, for example, a mortgage.
NPLs are a problem for banks. When they become non-performing the likelihood of them ever being repaid in full becomes increasingly unlikely.
They will want to offload as much of these as they can as they weaken a bank’s profitability because they generate losses which reduce the amount of money banks earn from their credit business.
As a result of this, Banks will offload these NPLs by selling them to vulture funds who will then work solely with the aim to recover as much of the debt as possible.
How does this affect you?
This could affect you if you handed back the keys to your foreign property to the banks and walked away. Axactor, a large multinational vulture fund has recently acquired over €459 million of unsecured non-performing loans that include Spanish property from Santander.
Other examples of vulture funds that our clients have received a letter or even an email from include:
If you, like thousands of other people, handed back the keys of your foreign property to the banks 15-20 years ago when costs spiralled out of control in the hope that the matter would be resolved amicably, it gives us no pleasure to say you have unfortunately been misinformed. The debt still exists and a letter or email from one of these vulture funds is imminent. These organisations will stop at nothing to recoup the debts owed to them. They will go after every asset you have.
