Adverse Credit Mortgage Investors Seek Help

Aug 23, 2008
Major financial institutions which hold billions of pounds in mortgage backed securities have been watching mortgagors default on their home loans in record numbers in recent times. Surprisingly these investors have not shored up their defenses against the rogue borrowers enough and as a result have been losing money hand over fist.

However the institutions which hold loan books rife with adverse credit mortgage products are now fighting back and are increasingly looking to engage the services of investors who will underwrite the loans as well as collect on the delinquent balances. The same institutions are also discovering that their own collectors are not as efficient as they should be in the wake of such high numbers of loan defaults to chase.

Investors in adverse credit mortgage products that are in default are also losing confidence in the profitability of the loans they back and as a result are not collecting as much money as they should be. This is because they are experiencing a higher level of defaults and write-downs on the securities they back. This leads to a loss of motivation and the investors subsequently go elsewhere and invest in other securities.

The financial giants who issue the mortgages will likely then disengage the services of the investors and employ the services of others. Sometimes, however, it doesn't matter who is attempting to collect of the adverse credit mortgage products in default as the home owner does not have the means to pay up. This is happening in record numbers and is blight on the greater financial markets.

While the types of mortgages which require servicing vary a great portion of them are adverse credit mortgage products. Such products were issued en masse over the last decade and fuelled a global housing boom. Since then a higher than normal percentage have gone into default. This has been the trigger to a larger global financial crisis that has seen mortgage lenders brought to a virtual standstill.

Financial institutions have therefore been forced to increase their collection activities as more and more mortgagors default. The sheer volume of payments to collect has been overwhelming for many lenders which have forced them into a situation in which they must outsource their collection activities to thousands of different businesses. Many of these businesses are investors who have a stake in the mortgage they are collecting on. This can earn them an income in addition to the fee they usually receive.

It appears that even the investors are finding it difficult to collect on many of the adverse credit mortgage products they are employed to deal with. This has lead to stagnation in this activity in addition to the stagnation at the other end of the spectrum - the lending market. In the middle of this strange set of circumstances are home owners with impaired credit files who were issued home loans that simply could not afford. What happens to the mortgage market in the long term remains to be seen however it is clear that it has a long way to go before the money flows freely again.
