“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.”
The Spanish property market suffered severely following the global financial crisis with property values dropping significantly. This has become a significant issue for foreign investors who purchased homes in Spain during the boom period pre-2008.
Negative Equity occurs when the value of the property is less than the outstanding mortgage. Given lending practices in Spain where loose during the boom period many overseas borrowers feel “trapped” and cannot off load the property due to negative equity, they are effectively mortgage prisoners.
