Spain


Spain Foreclosures Spread to Once Wealthy Mortgages - Bloomberg

According to Carlos Banos, president of Madrid-based AFES, as many as 400,000 foreclosures have occurred in Spain since the beginning of the housing market’s collapse...Under Spanish law, a bank can pursue a borrower for the difference if a foreclosed property is sold for less than the outstanding mortgage. Lenders can also garner present and future assets and earnings of borrowers and their guarantors, including pay checks and pensions. “These people completely lose their purpose in life. Everything they had or will ever have in the future will go to the bank.”

Spaniards Protest High Rate of Foreclosures - Voice of America
In Spain, if the bank forecloses on your home, you are still liable for your mortgage debt. That means people who have lost their homes are saddled with mountains of debt as well. It is a predicament that has happened to more than 300,000 Spaniards since the housing bubble burst in 2008. According to Susan Garcia, "This is a big, big shame. Because people have no houses, and big debt for the rest of their lives. It's like a crime. It's state terrorism.

In Spain, Homes Are Taken but Debt Stays

Government officials say Spain’s system of personal guarantees saved its banks from the turmoil seen in the United States...It is true that we are living a hangover of a huge real estate binge...And it is true that far too many Spaniards have excessive debt. But we have not seen the problems of the U.S. because the guarantees here are so much better...Spain’s foreclosure procedures tilt far too much in favor of the banks, virtually guaranteeing that mortgage defaulters will end up owing large amounts after they lose their homes.

Greece, for example, traded away the rights to airport fees and lottery proceeds in years to come. Critics say that such deals, because they are not recorded as loans, mislead investors and regulators about the depth of a country’s liabilities.
