Falling property values

Falling property values put question mark over Northern Rock bail out

The fall in the property market has put a question mark over the raising of cash to bail out Northern Rock. When the only two runners left in the race, Sir Richard Branson's Virgin and Luqman Arnold's Olivant, first made their approach to the board of the Newcastle-based bank, the impression given was that the £10 billion necessary for the rescue was in place. But as over the weekend Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling is understood to have appointed Goldman Sachs to assembly the package, there are doubts that with falling property values these assets are enough to secure the £10 billion.
