Mortgage Delinquency Rate Declines for 12th Straight Quarter

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Delinquent Mortgages Mortgage Delinquency Rate TransUnion Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The nation’s mortgage delinquency rate for loans 60 days or more overdue continued its steady decline in the fourth quarter of 2014, falling to 3.29 percent – representing a 14 percent drop from the same quarter in 2013 (3.84 percent), according to TransUnion’s latest mortgage report released Wednesday.Q4 was the 12th straight quarter in which the mortgage delinquency rate declined, according to TransUnion.”The mortgage delinquency rate continues to be well controlled as it slowly recedes to pre-recession levels, driven primarily by the ongoing clearance of the foreclosure backlog. More recent vintages have been performing exceptionally well,” said Ezra Becker, vice president of research and consulting in TransUnion’s financial services business unit. “A bigger story this past quarter is the continued rise in mortgage balances. Much of this gain can be attributed to those consumers who took advantage of a low interest rate environment to purchase homes with jumbo mortgage loans. The share of these loans amongst all mortgage originations increased by 8% in Q3 2014 from 6.8% in Q3 2013 and 5.8% in Q3 2012.”Miami experienced the largest year-over-year decline in delinquency rate among metro areas with a drop from 10.4 percent in Q4 2013 down to 7.18 percent in Q4 2014 (a decline of 30.9 percent). Two more major metro areas that experienced year-over-year double digit declines in delinquency rate in Q4 were Los Angeles (from 3.06 percent to 2.4 percent, a 21.5 percent decline) and Boston (from 3.08 percent down to 2.69 percent, a decline of 12.8 percent).”These are significant data points, because they show that mortgage delinquency rates continue to drop across the country—both in those markets with elevated delinquencies and in those that have already experienced major drops,” Becker said.The age group that saw the largest year-over-year decline in mortgage delinquency rate in Q4 was the age 30 and under group, which saw a 2.92 percent rate in Q4 2013 fall down to 2.21 percent in Q4 2014, a drop of 24.3 percent. But while delinquency rates dropped year-over-year for all age groups, debt levels increased. The under-30 group of consumers saw a the largest debt-to-borrower increase, from $149,778 in Q4 2013 up to $151,692 in Q4 2014, according to TransUnion.There were 53.2 million mortgage accounts nationwide as of the end of Q4 2014, according to TransUnion – a slight increase from 52.9 million in the same quarter in 2013. However, Q4 2014’s total was more than six million fewer than the same quarter in 2009 (59.6 million).

Homeowners Bracing for Climate Change

The Zillow Housing Housing Aspirations Report reveals that young adults and people who live in coastal metros are the most likely to anticipate their lives will be impacted by climate change.The report states that around 62% of people ages 18 to 34 say their homes or communities will be affected either “somewhat” or “a great deal” in their lifetimes, compared with 51% of people ages 35 to 54, and only 39% of those 55 and older.By city, Miami (61%), San Jose (59%) and Los Angeles (57%) were most likely to anticipate climate change impact, compared to St. Louis (40%), Detroit (43%) and Philadelphia (44%).”This survey confirms that millions of Americans are sensitive to the risks associated with climate change and believe they will face them in their lifetimes,” said Skylar Olsen, Director of Economic Research at Zillow. “Young adults are much more likely to recognize the reality of climate change-related risks to their homes and communities. Every month new evidence is brought to light about the risks ranging from rising temperatures to more frequent floods to wildfires, and people are hearing the message. Even across age groups and political lines, there is at least consensus that when you are in a hole the first step is to stop digging, in this case by not continuing to build new homes in high-risk areas.”A previous analysis from Zillow found that more than 800,000 existing homes worth $451 billion will be at risk in a 10-year flood by 2050. Additionally, there are around a half million homes in California at risk from wildfires.Zillow also surveyed residents on what solutions they would like to see. Of those surveyed, 71% would support new laws to prevent developers from building in high-risk areas that are prone to natural disasters. Additionally, 62% support making structural improvements to homes to mitigate damage, while 59% would support the adoption of new policies that require homeowners in high-risk areas to buy disaster insurance.

A belated Valentine’s Day tale

He was stubborn and butt-headed but nothing that we couldn’t handle. Then one day…Undoubtedly, in all his grazing, Bully stumbled upon the root for that new miracle drug, Viagra. Why, in a twist, he turned into Romeo, Casanova and Don Juan all rolled into one. He chased the ewes all around the pasture with reckless abandoned. He ran them so that their tongues were hanging out and they could hardly bleat.We tried to chase Bully away from the exhausted ewes. We tried to beat him back with sticks and run him away with rocks. But all to no avail.Finally, the dogcatcher came to rescue the ewes. He shot Bully with a tranquilizer gun. Bully staggered, stumbled and fell flat in the pasture’s high grass.

Pension rights cost disputed

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Pension rights cost disputedOn 1 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Claims that the European ruling on the part-timers’ pensions test case willcost British employers many billions of pounds are “simplescaremongering”, according to benefits consultancy William M Mercer. Figures of between £10bn and £17bn have been quoted in the wake of theEuropean Court’s decision in Preston and Fletcher v Wolverhampton BoroughCouncil and Midland Bank. It said limiting the backdating of part-timers’entitlement to pension rights to two years was unlawful, opening the way forclaims to be dated all the way back to 1976. But the cost to industry is likely to be closer to £100m, said DavidMarshland, William M Mercer’s employment law specialist. This is because theECJ has upheld the six-month limit for bringing claims after leavingemployment. Also, the House of Lords might yet apply the general limitationperiod in British contract law of six years. Further factors are likely to hinder the ability of part-timers to bringclaims, Marshland said. “Probably only a quarter [of Britain’s six million part-timers] staywith the same employer for more than two years – the minimum period usuallyneeded to qualify for preserved benefits,” Marshland said. An added complication is that claimants must find an equivalent full-timerof the opposite sex, and many part-timers work in jobs where there are noequivalent full-timers. Claimants must also be prepared to pay their share ofback-dated pension contributions. Other advisers have, however, put the potential cost much higher, partlybecause the cases have trade union backing which may help claimants meet thecost of their own contributions. “Also, nearly a quarter of all UK pension schemes are non-contributory,so backdated membership would be free.” Comments are closed. last_img read more

Sunrise Bakery fined for 22 food hygiene offences

first_imgSunrise Bakery, which specialises in Caribbean bread products, has been ordered to pay £30,000 in fines and costs after bosses pleaded guilty to 22 hygiene offences.Environmental health officers made three visits to the bakery in Woodlands Street, Smethwick in October 2017. On the first they found mouse droppings on the floor near bread ovens, where ingredients were stored and where bread was cooled.Copeland Drummond, director of the bakery’s controlling company William Herman Ltd, was told a pest controller was needed to carry out urgent rodent treatment, but when officers visited again in February 2018, this had not happened.Other food hygiene breaches included failing to manage waste and store food properly, dirty premises and equipment, and failure to properly supervise or instruct staff on food safety procedures.Drummond and William Herman Ltd each admitted 22 offences of food safety and hygiene failings at Wolverhampton Crown Court.Recorder Nicholas Bacon QC described the offences as “very serious” and said they could have created “real difficulties” to consumers’ health. He fined the company £20,000 and ordered it to pay £10,000 costs, while Drummond was given a 12-month community order with 100 hours of unpaid work.Following the case, Sunrise Bakery managing director Errol Drummond told British Baker the business had worked closely with the council over the years.“We try to produce to the highest standards that we can and we have always done that,” he said. “We started over 50 years ago – this is our 53rd year – if we were a bad company we would not have survived for 53 years.”He explained that the rodent problem happened at a time when the bakery was changing pest controller, and that the business had made the council aware of this.Drummond said that, since changing pest controller, there had not been “a single sign of a mouse dropping”.“Since the case we have spoken to our customers,” he added. “They can see the systems we operate and they seem satisfied. A lot of our customers have supported us – anyone who wants to visit us can do so and see how we work.”Drummond added that all Sunrise bakery staff go through three-yearly food hygiene training and that its technical manager is qualified to degree level.Councilllor Farut Shaeen, cabinet member for living healthy lives at Sandwell Council, which prosecuted Sunrise Bakery, said the council took food hygiene matters extremely seriously. “We welcome this sentence, which, thanks to our environmental health and legal teams, was brought before the court. We hope it acts as a deterrent to other food businesses that do not manage their businesses in compliance with the law.”last_img read more
