New Mortgage Law: changes and problems

This month of November began with a news of great importance. On 3 day, the Draft Law for the regulation of real estate credit agreements was approved. Better known as the new Mortgage Law. This is the transposition of the 2014 / 17 Directive of the European Union, and it comes late. We tell you pros and cons of the new Mortgage Law.

In Foro Consultores we have analyzed in different articles and media the main changes that the Law entails, as well as the consequences in terms of litigation. Will it solve, perhaps, the amount of current lawsuits that occur in connection with the so-called 'abusive clauses'?

As for the main changes, we see them in the bet for mortgages at a fixed rate, in a search for more information and transparency with greater prominence of the notary. Linked sales are prohibited, that is, combining different products when the mortgage is signed. The news also reach multi-currency mortgages, early maturity, interest, non-payment, etc.

However, we can say that Not all that glitters is gold. Experts in mortgage law attack the Law frontally. The main criticism is that it is not transparent at all. Despite the efforts of the legislator, which seems to protect credit institutions more than the borrowers, the litigation will continue due to the lack of clarity and information.

We invite you to explore in a simple and fast way the new Mortgage Law in the following links:

Housing on a flat market strip, what should you know before buying?

The shortage of new housing turnkey has given greater prominence to the housing on plan. The last SIMA autumn has shown its strength in the market. Of the 10.000 housing units, some 9.000 were flat.

This is due to the exhaustion of the existing stock in past years. But, if you are going to buy housing on a flat, do not forget some aspects to avoid risks. The guarantees are fundamental. And it is not the same to do it in a cooperative as directly to the promoter.

In our collaboration in Invest, we tell you what aspects you should take into account in each of the cases. Do not forget that if the purchase is directly to the promoter, he is responsible for the entire process. On the contrary, in cooperative, each of the participants becomes a promoter. Of course, in return, housing is cheaper.

If you plan to buy housing, do not miss our post. We tell you in detail.
