My mom eat my dog ! then turned into an estate agent!!!

The return of sub-prime mortgages

Specialist mortgage lender Kensington has just announced a range of “recession-busting products” designed to help borrowers with modest credit problems recover from the effects of the recession. It denies they are sub-prime, but these deals look and smell very much like sub-prime to me.

  • So, they are lending up to 70% LTV to people with recent CCJ’s..

    ..what sort of people can pull together that sort of deposit after they’ve been CCJ’d?

    Some young people keep their debt problems from their parents, and with the benefit of a BOMAD deposit, might need such a deal..

    Then there’s the incompetant brigade – people who have money, but give up on dealing with their mail..

    Overall, I think Kensington are on to quite a clever little wheeze here – with a 30% deposit, the risk of ultimately losing any money is relatively small, whilst they are no doubt charging a punitive interest rate.

    As they are not an outfit that loses sleep over the prospect of a foreclosure, this will probably be a nice little earner..

    Very profitable and very safe. “Help” people with 30%+ equity that can’t meet their current repayments. Remortgage them on a better deal than they can get because they’re behind on their payments, and close on them in 2 years time.

    @ Mr G, comment 3, I am a sell-to-renter, but I’m not whinging and I certainly won’t ever need a mortgage ever again.

  • Agreed Mark Wadsworth.

    I think the majority of STR’s are quite content for matters to take their course. The bigger the bubble etc…….
