Bell & Company Offer Options & Solutions for Negative Equity 

Right across Ireland, Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, homeowners are still as vulnerable as ever to negative equity.

Back in 2015 it was reported by The Guardian that a couple from Northern Ireland paid c£700,000 for a luxury home in a good area back in 2007 when the property market was at its peak. After being struck with the recession they were forced to sell their home, taking a huge loss of £410,000. Stories like this are day to day here at Bell & Company, with thousands across the UK and Ireland finding themselves in very similar situations looking for solutions for negative equity. Since 2008, property prices are far from what they were, in fact in Northern Ireland and North England today they are a fraction of the cost.

It seems like these issues are predicted to stick around for the near future as Economics Editor Kamal Ahmed (BBC) identifies in the upcoming separation from the European Union will impact all sectors of the economy. As we approach Theresa May’s March deadline to trigger Article 50, the rate of inflation raises due to the value of Sterling declining, which will affect people’s real incomes, investments are being delayed and jobs are moving out of the UK and on to the continent in sectors such as banking and finance.

Effects of 2008 Crisis

The crisis of 2008 has negatively affected the economy longer than expected and with Brexit lingering it is too early to predict the state of the UK economy.  Regarding problematic properties for many of our clients it seems like there are no options & no way out; being served letters from the Banks demanding money, scraping by day to day to pay for household essentials or even dealing with a breakdown in relationship; forcing them to sell their property.
