The fact that there is no margin call in the film speaks volumes about how much the writers really know about finance. ie Sweet FA. They also got confused about whteher the firm was a partnership or a company. Jeremy Irons' character is simply a weirdo. Still waiting for a believable film about the crisis.
Squatter In £400,000 Three-Bedroom House Whose Elderly Owner Died Wins Right To Ownership After 10 Years (While Owner's Family Gets Nothing)
woady replied to interestrateripoff's topic in House prices and the economySquatters laws come from medieval times when landowners were forever stealing land off each other. If you kept hold of any land you stole for x no of years then you owned it-simple. It was the only way of preventing endless probably intractable disputes over land ownership being raised decades afterwards clogging up the courts. No sure how relevant they are to 21 century life.
