Ecuador Banks to Forgive Mortgage Debt

casas-montanita

Today the government announced that legislation has passed forcing banks to forgive outstanding mortgage debt for first-time home buyers up to $146k who have forfeited a home.

The general public looks at this bill in a positive way as something that goes for the common folk and against “the man” in a country where bankers are still looked at as evil.

In general, many experts believe this bill will deter future lending, which may be a good thing, keeping local property prices low.

President Correa still has to sign the bill in order for it to be passed into law but most expect him to do so.

This has pushed Ecuador into the international spotlight as ABC News and FOX News has covered the happenings of this nearly unprecedented occurance.
