Homeowners relaxed about negative equity

first_img Homeowners relaxed about negative equity Show Comments ▼ IN the latest YouGov SixthSense Mortgages Report, mortgage holders were asked to estimate the current value of their household and cost of their mortgage. Ninety-one per cent who were able to give these figures were in positive equity with nearly one in ten recording a no equity or negative equity score.This data is in line with figures released Monday by the Bank of England which put the scale of negative equity at between four and five per cent of all UK mortgage holders: translating into approximately half a million UK households currently operating at levels of debt outweighing the value of existing assets.In addition to those in negative equity, the YouGov report puts eight per cent of mortgage holders in the “no equity” bracket – the point at which asset value just meets debt – translating into 1.5m households teetering on the brink of negative equity.When coupled with Bank of England figures that suggest one in five mortgage holders have debts exceeding 75 per cent of the value of their properties, it makes for a bleak forecast for lenders.The average level of negative equity among those in negative equity is £52,338. On this basis, these adults will not come out of negative equity until house prices rise by 37 per cent. Meanwhile, it would appear that negative equity is most severe for people who bought a property between 2000 and 2008, especially those buying at the peak of the market in 2005 to 2007.The graph shows that the negative equity is disproportionally present amongst mortgage holders below the age of 35 while a no equity status is a rarity over the age of 55.Despite this, mortgage holders would appear to be taking it all in their stride. When asked to rate their concerns about negative equity those in negative equity or with no equity appear pretty sanguine, the majority neither overly worried nor blissfully dismissive of the consequences.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive of YouGov Tuesday 14 December 2010 8:42 pm Tags: NULL whatsappcenter_img KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com Share whatsapplast_img read more

The particularity of the site on which we were to intervene is that its rear boundary is adjacent to an urban courtyard with abundant trees, where there is a football school and a small square. The views to this green area match the best direction: north.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaProposal We thought that, expecting the changes that will occur in the short or medium term in the area, the building should be a piece devoid of adjectives, neutral enough in its form to live with what exists today and what can be built in the future. With a desire focused on its constructive expression and its production process. For that reason it seemed appropriate to propose a building with a façade devoid of accents or articulations, and if possible, be constructed with a single material. We also wanted to continue experimenting with exposed concrete, as we have done in summer houses in Mar Azul or permanent homes in the greater Buenos Aires. We did so because we assessed that this constructive aesthetic system with the necessary adaptations would address both the issue of a dominant material easy to assimilate to different environments, as well as the short construction times, low maintenance cost in the future, and a construction cost within the standard.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe main adaptation was leaving the concrete exposed only on the facades, the vertical core and a series of internal walls that serve the dual function as room dividers and load bearing structure. For the two party walls, it seemed logical to continue considering a traditional solution of concrete columns hidden in a double masonry wall. We also wanted, as in the Concrete House, to design the facades like an articulation between public and private space, with a series of vertical partitions that vary their position from floor to floor and allow for the location of openings for each room across the entire width and height available. The views toward the interior of the units that face the street are protected by these elements, and the ones overlooking the green area give the user an ever changing frame of the landscape as he moves within the apartment. Another goal we pursued was that the ground floor be free of program, on one hand to offer the public space air, light, and views of the rear garden, and on the other hand to avoid housing units be affected by their contact with the public level. Finally, we designed each apartment to feature the greatest possible flexibility of use with a generous expansion, yet protected by the walls that organize the facades.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaFunctional OrganizationThe building has an open ground floor, 5 typical floors with four studio apartments each, and a sixth floor with a terrace and common use rooms, plus a one-bedroom dwelling unit.On the typical floors, four mirrored units are accessed from the landing with views of the city and natural light, two at the front, linked at the bathrooms and kitchen, and two facing the back in the same situation. The exposed concrete walls that define such service spaces have, as we said, a structural function, and also define those environments that give more privacy to the main spaces of each housing unit. The creation of the two small courtyards in the center of the plan follows the purpose of providing all units with cross ventilation, and additional lighting in the widest area of the space.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaConstructionThe structural system of the typical plan is supported at the center, it required a transitional space to allow for an open ground floor plan with supports only at the party walls. It was designed with beams receiving the loads of the central system of partitions of the typical plan, which move them to the party wall axes. This beam system is enclosed in slabs which also allow for the diversion of facilities without requiring a reinforced ceiling which would introduce another material.The party walls were plastered and painted with white latex on the inside, and with a plastic plaster on the outside. The floors are concrete screed panels divided by plates of aluminum. The meeting between the walls and the floor was designed with a recessed aluminum profile as a baseboard. The openings are anodized aluminum colored dark bronze. The heating and cooling system is designed with individual equipment for each dwelling unit.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaFrom Mar Azul to BoedoIt was very interesting as an experience for our office to work on the adaptation of an aesthetic constructive system originated for a specific environment and program: summer houses in a maritime forest, a very different subject and environment. We assumed the challenge that the language we have developed in the houses could not withstand the change of scale, program and location in the urban fabric. The result confirms that a system of strategies for addressing projects, and aesthetic constructive solutions proposed a priori as a body of ideas, do not limit the possibilities of design for the various problems that may arise if the experimentation with each new project goes through the sieve of each circumstance.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessTales Pavilion / Luca NichettoSelected ProjectsIf Skyscrapers Predict Crises, What Do “Donuts” Tell Us?Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Estados Unidos 4263, Lanús Oeste, Buenos Aires Province, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Gallo), from the year 1956. Winning project of a national competition for construction of 300 houses in La Boca, never realized. The main idea of these buildings, of metabolist design, was the stacking of boxes alternating floor to floor, which presented a housing typology with terraces in the corners, allowing a panoramic view of the port and the city.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe idea for these towers is to reinterpret, in the contemporary key, that project of 4 units per floor, 4 corners. Therefore, to do it, we had, in the first instance, to resign a unit of 2 dormitories per floor, which were displaced above Building K.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasIt is in this way that the central interest of the project of towers resides in the creation and rotation of its pavements, which allows to organize houses around a terrace-patio of dimensions and proportions that converts it into a central space of the unit.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe terrace is the expansion, but at the same time is considered an extra environment. The living room, dining room and kitchen are naturally expanded towards it which, with two free sides and two sheltered, ensures a climatic comfort suitable for this city. So, the unit is central to the project, because a non-boxed dwelling is proposed, as a transition between an apartment and an individual dwelling.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasOn the floors are distributed two units of 2 dormitories (base unit), one of 3 and one of 1 dormitory. The 3-bedroom unit uses one of the adjoining unit, which is connected to the living room, and can also function as separate office or dormitory for the teenage son. Even if they do not reach great height, the proposed towers will have, due to their formal and architectural characteristics, a strong impact on the urban landscape.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasBUILDING K / A GREEN BARFor the K typology, originally a ground-floor kiosk, and in our project a ground floor building + 3 floors, we propose a green building with an accessible garden terrace and gardened facades. There are 3 floors of 8 units of a dormitory each, and the before mentioned kiosk / bar on the ground floor.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThis idea arises for two reasons: on the one hand, by moving these 24 units of 1 bedroom to Building K, we asked ourselves if these apartments were not being discriminated, that is, who had not the benefits of the balcony typology.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasOn the other hand, addressing the theme of the green garden terraces required for the BA Station PROCREAR, we think that the Towers do not approach a large green surface, and this is a way to compensate the cement of the towers and naturalize the whole with this building as an improvement of the proposed park.Therefore, to unite the same design criteria as the Towers, it is proposed to ALTERNATE the floors so that the balconies are not stacked and have the MOVEMENT, floor to floor, that they have.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasProject gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV Collaborates With School Children to Complete Graphic Public Play Space for Gw…Architecture NewsFrom Smartphones to Smart Cities: What Happens When We Try to Solve Every Problem Wi…InterviewsProject locationAddress:Barracas, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

In Thai context, common area is considered as a significant space that allow the family member to spend their time together as well as fulfilling the word ‘home’ to the place. This become one of the main concepts for designing 713 House, a single – family house on the Bangkok suburb. The owner decided to demolish their existing house and replaced it with the new design. The intention of this design is to expand function area as well as creating more interaction among family members and more relation to the nature which they find it still absence from their previous house.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioA rectangular plot of land is split into two. One side is containing a residential volume while the other side is turned to be a landscape. In order to bring in as much nature into the interior space as possible, some parts of the volume are being subtracted, creating a court that allow wind and natural light to pass through. Furthermore, the owner can enjoy the scenery of the landscape through the opening around the building.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe architect explicitly divided the space zoning for the semi-private and private space. With an inspiration from a traditional Thai house, most of the function for the first floor is a common area while on the second floor, all the private function is located. Most of the spaces were designed to be semi – outdoor to allow natural ventilation and natural light penetrating through. Some parts of the court are turned to be a pond help providing some serenity yet vibrancy to the space. Moreover, the rooftop is designed to be a private exercising space for the owner where they can enjoy the scenery of the Bangkok suburb.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioSave this picture!Elevation 04Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe architecture is blended to the surrounding nature by the material. Glass helps melting away the boundary between the interior space and the exterior. For the façade, the architect used wooden screen and metal mesh in some parts in order to preserve some privacy without depriving the visual to the outside. With the use of void and steel structure, the solidity of form is being subsided.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioImportantly, some wood from their previous house are being preserved and reused in this house such as court flooring and staircase finishing. This give some sense of nostalgia to the family member as well as help saving the construction cost.

Gag order on Ugandan media

first_img On 5 May 2016, Jim Muhwezi, former Major general of the Army and current Information minister issued a gag order preventing live coverage of the opposition’s “defiance” campaign spearheaded by the party of Kizza Besigye. This order follows a ruling of the deputy chief Justice from April, 29 declaring all opposition protests illegal. In its release, the Information Minister said “Any media house that continues offering live coverage of the so-called defiance campaign risk having its broadcasting licence revoked”. He added ” The ban may extend to social media if it is used as an alternative tool for propagating defiance campaign”. “This is a scandalous clamp down on information freedom that only adds to the difficulties journalists have been facing since before the presidential elections, says Reporters Without Borders. We urge the authorities to lift this illegal gag order immediately”. The gag order has been issued a few days before the planned swearing in ceremony of President Yoweri Museweni, who will start his 30th year in the presidential seat, after being elected in February following an election the European Union said lacked transparency. The opponent Kizza Besygie had rejected the result of the February elections and had since then been placed under house arrest. Reporters trying to cover the conditions of his incarceration have been systematically harassed by the Ugandan police guarding Besigye’s residence. Uganda is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in the 2016 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Heroes launched to Irish market

first_imgNewsHeroes launched to Irish marketBy admin – September 24, 2010 675 Advertisement Print Linkedin Previous articleEasy teatime dishesNext articleSkills training programme for unemployed admin WhatsAppcenter_img AS AN international “thank you” to the Irish consumers of Santa Rita wines, the ever popular Chilean wine producer has launched a new, limited edition range of wines customised for the Irish Independent Off Licence market. With the Irish market accounting for some 220,000 cases of wine from the Santa Rita winery last year, Carlos Gatica, chief winemaker for the Santa Rita 120 range notes the importance of Ireland to their export trade. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “When we produce our wines for export, Ireland and the USA are our biggest markets. Between those two countries over half of our export cases are accounted for. Heroes is our way of saying thank you. We are introducing this limited edition wine, that is a premium product, at a very reasonable price point. It is important that we give something back and I think the Heroes range does that.”The ‘Héroes’ range consists of a 2009 Malbec from Valle de Maipo and a 2009 Unoaked Chardonnay from Casablanca Valley. The collection has been created by the Santa Rita 120 winemaker Carlos Gatica in honour of Chile’s Bicentenary (1810 – 2010) of the fight for Chilean independence.Both wines have a distinctive black label and perfectly represent Santa Rita’s dedication to excellence, innovation and international reputation for producing inspiring wines.“Santa Rita Héroes 2009 Unoaked Chardonnay shows a golden colour with green hues. Aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, banana and pear combined with fresh citrus notes, balanced acidity and white peach notes, give a long and persistent finish. It is an excellent accompaniment to casseroles, salads, shellfish, fish, cheese and white meats.“Santa Rita Héroes 2009 Malbec presents a violet-red colour and aromas of red and black fruits, berries, spices and Cedar. It has a smooth and well rounded finish in the mouth and is an excellent accompaniment to roasts, red meat, grilled vegetables and hard cheeses.”The ‘Héroes’ wine range also highlights the  ‘Santa Rita 120 Local Hero campaign’ which asks the public to nominate someone who, in their eyes, is a true local hero. The winner will receive €10,000 to spend on their nominated piece of community activity, as well as a trip of a lifetime for two to Chile, the home of Santa Rita wine. Their nominator will also receive a trip for two to Chile.So if you know someone who deserves recognition for the work they do in your local community, simply pick up a nomination form in your local pub or off-licence or log onto facebook.com/santarita120. The Santa Rita ‘Héroes’ range will be available in independent off licences from next month priced at €9.99. Next week fft will have an in-depth exclusive interview with Carlos Gatica of Santa Rita 120. Twitter Facebook Emaillast_img read more

Previously, she served as managing editor of DS News and Southern Distinction, a regional lifestyle publication. Her work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Consumers Digest, Dallas Style and Design, DS News and DSNews.com, MReport and theMReport.com. She holds degrees in journalism and art from the University of Georgia. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Mortgage delinquencies hit a year-end record low at the end of 2018 while the national foreclosure rate was the lowest rate recorded at year-end since 2005, according to Black Knight’s “First Look,” a precursor to its Mortgage Market Monitor, which will be released in early February.In December 3.9 percent of mortgages in the United States were delinquent—at least 30 days past due but not in foreclosure yet. Although this is up 4.71 percent from the month earlier, it is down a significant 17.55 percent from a year ago.The national foreclosure rate was a slight 0.52 percent in December. Like the delinquency rate this was higher than last month but lower than a year earlier. The foreclosure rate rose 1.19 percent over the month but had fallen 19.23 percent over the year in December.In total, 46,300 properties went into foreclosure over the month of December, up 2.43 percent from November and up 4.04 percent from the previous December.Black Knight attributed the uptick in foreclosure starts over the year in December to “suppressed foreclosure start volumes in late 2017 due to hurricane-related moratoriums.”The states with the greatest percentage of non-current loans, which includes both delinquent loans and those in the foreclosure process, were Mississippi (10.09 percent), Louisiana (8.13 percent), Alabama (6.95 percent), West Virginia (6.69 percent), and Arkansas (6.29 percent). Despite ranking highest for non-current loans, all of these states experienced declines in non-current loan rates over the year in December, and they remain below their previous peaks, according to Black Knight’s data.The states with the smallest percentage of non-current mortgage loans were North Dakota (2.46 percent), Idaho (2.32 percent), Washington (2.28 percent), Oregon (2.12 percent), and Colorado (1.90 percent).Florida experienced the greatest decline in non-current loans over the six-month period ending in December with a 12.37 percent decline. Florida’s non-current loan rate now stands at 4.94 percent, which is less than one-fifth its peak of 25.23 percent reached in January 2010.Following Florida in terms of declining non-current loan rates were Wyoming, Tennessee, Alaska, and Utah.The greatest increases in the percentage of non-current loans took place in the District of Columbia (20.96 percent), Nebraska (20.38 percent), Illinois (18.52 percent), Arkansas (11.15 percent), and North Carolina (10.53 percent). Despite these double-digit increases in non-current loans over the second half of 2018, the non-current loan rates in all of these states remain well below their former peaks reached between 2010 and 2012.Black Knight also noted that prepayments held steady at their 10-year low reached in November.
