Irish Owned Property To Flood The Uk Market!

Recommended Posts

Lead story on this site's homepage, there's a tidal wave of falling property washing around the world right now.

When Ireland ran into its financial crisis, the Irish government set up the National Asset Management Agency (Nama) to take control of its struggling banks' rotten assets. A fifth of the €81bn of toxic property loans now under the control of Nama relate to the UK, making the Irish "bad bank", along with state-supported Lloyds and the Royal Bank of Scotland, one of the most important property financiers in the country.

Much of the property was bought with debt, and the property developers and investors who once enjoyed a high life of private jets, helicopters and second, third and fourth homes are all under pressure.

It seems to be a story more about commercial rather than residential property.

Of course our taxes are being used to bailout the developers:

Ballymore, which is owned by bricklayer-turned-tycoon Sean Mulryan, was one of the first developers to go into Nama. The company is now seeking to deleverage and is talking to sovereign funds, pension funds and its creditors about debt-for-equity swaps.

It has also quietly been selling off tracts of land, and recently paid £300m back to Nama. And it is close to concluding a deal that will give RBS and a group of bondholders a 72.5% stake in its redevelopment of the now-demolished London Arena on the Isle of Dogs
