DEBT CHASED IN UK ON A FOREIGN PROPERTY?

We offer a completely free, no obligation initial consultation

PROPERTY DEBT SHORTFALLS- CAN THEY BE CHASED IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY?

European Banks have the ability to pursue overseas borrowers for outstanding debts. It is as simple as that.

We read some advice which seems to suggest you are safe in your country of origin. This is incorrect and ignoring the issue will likely be putting any assets you have at risk.

European Banks are beginning to become more pro-active in the debt collection. The dust has settled on property market and general economic decline on the continent and Banks have been given the ultimatum to tidy up their loan books. Some have even been sold to Private Equity funds who are looking to make a return for their investors.

This will become a more prevalent problem and we urge overseas borrowers not to ignore their liabilities abroad. If you are being pursued in the UK or Ireland for an overseas property please contact us.

1persue-1

At EU Property Solutions we find it incredible so many British and Irish borrowers feel they can merely “hand back the keys” and walk away from the property thinking they are somehow immune to any consequences once back home.

Many borrowers simply post their keys through a Bank or representing solicitors’ letter box and make a run for it. It is actually something out of the movies! These debtors have the impression that creditors’ cannot pursue their home country assets and nor that the Banks have the time or resources to pursue overseas. This may be true in respect to small balances but in truth Banks are stepping up their overseas debt collection and debtors with this mind-set could be left to rue this misjudgement.

In order to promote free-trade commerce throughout Europe legal cooperation is essential and thus legal mechanisms are in place to facilitate overseas perusal. This makes it nigh on impossible for a UK or Irish High Court to raise its own motion on grounds for non-enforcement or review.

Anyone who signs a mortgage deed in Spain, including guarantors, is personally liable for the loan. Any legal action with likely be notified to the Spanish Address on which the mortgage has been placed, and although logical, many overseas borrowers in Ireland and the UK will be unaware of any proceedings against them until the process is gathering a pace.

In terms of debt perusal in the UK or Ireland lenders can look to recover your home assets and many lenders will appoint UK Debt Collection agents and this could lead to an effect on your home country credit report. The Spanish lender can look to put a charge on your property even if it already has an existing mortgage and can even enforce an Attachment of Earnings Order. Spanish lenders to seem to be developing a greater appetite for overseas debt perusal given the magnitude of balances and Banking system overhaul.

EU Property Solutions hear too often about people handing back their property keys and wiping their hands of Spanish lenders only to realise down the line in the future they are still liable and are being actively pursued, and most importantly discover THEIR OWN HOME IS AT RISK.

It is imperative that if you have surrendered your property you enter dialogue with the relevant lender to minimise the exposure and risk of your home assets. EU Property Solutions can assist anyone in this situation so please contact the team today.
