Lending standards have become a hot topic in the financial markets this year as the housing market continues to crash.
Many lenders are under pressure to improve their loan performance and cut their foreclosure rates.
But that’s not enough for some borrowers.
Bankruptcy has become a top issue in the nation.
According to data from the National Association of Home Mortgage Lenders, the number of bankruptcies has increased by more than 6% from 2016 to 2017, an increase of nearly 25%.
That means the number is up 7% from a year earlier.
This is despite the fact that there have been nearly 5.3 million fewer bankruptcies in the first nine months of 2017 than in the same period in 2016.
While there are no data to suggest that there is a specific cause for this increase, the banksters point out that borrowers are facing increased interest rates and other financial pressures.
“As a result, borrowers are increasingly seeking higher-than-normal rates of return on their mortgage debt,” the association says in its report.
“While this may be contributing to the increased bankruptcies, there is no indication that the increased rate of defaults is a contributing factor.”
Borrowers are facing a slew of foreclosure issues that can be traced back to their housing.
Some of the biggest culprits: lenders, mortgage brokers and investors.
The mortgage industry has faced a severe shortage of borrowers and has seen an increasing number of defaults.
The mortgage lending industry has been dealing with a lot of bad loans in recent years.
And some of the more notable defaults include the subprime mortgage, which was once the largest source of delinquencies.
But as the mortgage market has cratered, many of these borrowers are being held hostage by lenders and investors who are not keeping up with their performance.
Many of these investors and borrowers are using the bankruptcy process as a vehicle to collect on loans and make big money.
They are charging large fees for loans that have a lower credit score and are less likely to be able to repay them.
As a whole, the amount of bankrupt debt in the U.S. is at an all-time high.
Banks are also struggling to handle the backlog of bad debt that has accumulated since the crisis.
Lenders are struggling to meet the increased demand from borrowers who have defaulted on their mortgages.
Some lenders have even been losing money because of this backlog.
In addition, there are a number of lenders that are struggling with the backlog because of their own inability to meet their mortgage loan servicing obligations.
These lenders are facing challenges in meeting their obligations to borrowers.
And as a result of this, many lenders have been reducing their interest rates to meet this demand.
According to the National Consumer Law Center, more than 3.4 million people were placed in receivership during the past five years.
Many of these cases involve banks.
For example, in 2014, Wells Fargo sold off more than 1 million mortgage loans, or one in 10 of its total portfolio, to private equity firm KKR.
The bank said the transaction was to reduce its exposure to bad loans.
A number of other banks are also seeing their loans decline due to a lack of borrowers.
Bankers have also faced mounting losses in the past year as their business has been harmed by a surge in foreclosing on homes.
Bankers have been forced to sell mortgages that they did not purchase, as well as mortgage loans that they sold to the private sector.
Even worse, these losses are coming at the expense of borrowers who are struggling.
At the same time, a number are also facing foreclosure that they do not owe, which makes them even more vulnerable to this financial crisis.
This puts the onus on the banks to make the loans even more attractive to borrowers and to keep the loan servicers honest.
What are the foreclosure trends?
The number of forecloses has increased in each of the past two years, according to the Federal Reserve.
This means that the amount in foreclosed properties has increased significantly since 2014, when there were about 1.8 million foreclosings.
Between 2016 and 2017, the total amount in foreclosure has increased at a rate of more than 5% each year.
It is important to note that all foreclosed properties are not equal.
Some are being sold for profit.
Others are being repossessed.
Some borrowers are receiving cash assistance and others are receiving help from the government.
Some lenders are also doing more with the foreclosed property, including modifying or selling the property.
And some banks are continuing to sell the property even though it has not been sold to a buyer.
How to fight foreclosure?
While there is little data on foreclosure trends, there have also been some interesting trends over the past few years.
For example, while the number in foreclosure was at its highest level in 2016, it is expected to decrease this year
