Mortgage Markets

The financial crisis of 2008 was the result of major failures in the mortgagees market – in particular with bad loans being given out regardless of the ability for individuals to repay. This report by the European Conservatives and Reformists Party explores the European mortgage market and what, if any, risks continue to exist in the financial sector. As well as looking at what protections have been put in place by the EU and national legislators since the financial crisis to learn the lessons of the past.
