    Default Subprime UK Style?

    Feeling Vulnerable: Britain's Coming Credit Crisis - International - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News

    "Steep housing prices and a dependence on financial services make its economy vulnerable. Some predict a blow to credit might even be worse -- much worse -- than in the US."

    So I had thought this was more of a US phenomenon, but apparently not. The "no doc" loan here became the "no-cert" loan in UK. I still think it originated here, though I'd be glad to be proven wrong.

    And is this the case in NZ as well?

    You can get low or no doc loans here, but usualy only if it's a secured loan such as a mortgage. There's not all that many subprime lenders, but more and more are appearing.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
