Can of worms will open as prices fall

Firstrung: Real estate bubble to expose all kinds of fraud that people happily ignored as prices rose

I thought the exposure of the self-cert scams a couple of years ago might burst the bubble, but it did not - people are still falsely self-certifying and lenders are still turning a blind eye. Heads will roll....

Are there any fancy lawyers out there who can formulate an argument so we can sue the evil VIs for artificially inflating the prices through their selfish un-audited greed - a la MCI Worldcom from the dot com boom - well I say un-audited, they were 'audited' by the now less than existent Andersen.

The WorldComs and Marconi's will be CLNB (City living new build) 'appartments' and Property Investment clubs.
