NEGATIVE EQUITY PORTUGAL PROPERTY - LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION?

We offer a completely free, no obligation initial consultation

“A property is in negative equity if it’s worth less than the mortgage secured on it, and it’s normally caused by falling property prices.”

Portugal’s property market suffered a decline in property values following the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. Whilst Negative Equity is not as prevalent as in neighbouring Spain, it is still an issue some overseas borrowers face.

Negative Equity occurs when the value of the property is less than the outstanding mortgage. Many Portuguese property owners feel “trapped” and cannot off load the property due to negative equity, they are effectively mortgage prisoners.

EU Property Solutions have gained knowledge and understanding of Portuguese cases through working with lenders in the country. There is a current change in their Banking system with one lender acquiring different loan books from other Banks. This, to date has worked in EU Property Solutions favour thanks to our excellent working relationship.

Typically, our cases in Portugal are focused on the Algarve region where overseas borrowers invested given the areas outstanding coast line and numerous championship golf courses.
