Fianna Fáil yesterday afternoon launched the Mortgage Resolution Bill 2013 which – if made law – would change the current rules that require a majority of creditors to approve a person’s entry to the new system.
Opposition parties previously complained the rules mean that those burdened with high mortgage debts are effectively barred from entering the insolvency process if their bank objects.

The Bill also creates a new Mortgage Resolution Office with the power to:
* issue binding orders to lower interest rates;
* extend the repayment period by up to 20 years;
* enforce a repayment ‘holiday’;
* defer part of the loan for up to 10 years,
* lease a home back to its occupiers at market rates.

“One of the biggest barriers to growth and recovery in Ireland is the number of families and communities struggling under the weight of unsustainable mortgage debt,” said FF’s finance spokesman Michael McGrath. “Legislators have a responsibility to come forward with a response to this crisis which does not put the banks in control.”
Other orders could be issued to:
* demand interest-only repayments for up to four years;
* swap part of the debt for a stake in the house;
* participate in a deferred interest scheme.

The Bill is likely to be rejected by the government.

Good discussion is on the cards for tonight. And keep your cool while BB tells us what’s wrong with us and how it should be done in future …

Bayliss and Burgess,

Just have nobody, it would be better,

Get on yer bike, Ribeye, and get out to Ballymount. WE'll watch ya...
The funny thing is, I think most people would agree that about 80% of the posters on this blog would be better on a panel than those two vested interest twits,

Like, I'd rather see the FG shills on the panel, they'd spin of course, but at least they're intelligent, for the most part,

Could be that the FGers from McGrath's constituency weren't available. Simon C perhaps too busy, and Jerry Buttimer .... Well, think he overdid his welcome the last time he was on ...


Btw. We can have a little side-bet, but I think it's BB who could be at the sharp end of VB's tongue tonight. He's had a few 'easy' shows - time he had a hard one.

I'd trust mirrens opinion on the economy more than burgess.

How is he always on.
