  • Banks relieved as RBNZ drops '5-plus' test for home loans BusinessDesk - 11 hours ago

    The major banks are breathing a sigh of relief that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand has dropped proposals that would have deemed anyone owning five or more residential properties as a commercial borrower, although the Property Institute is unhappy with the latest proposals, published yesterday for consultation. The central bank intends to require banks to set aside more capital against lending on homes that are not owner-occupied, to reflect the greater risk to financial stability of investing in residential property for profit rather than to own a place to live in. In sharp contrast to its heated objection to the introduction of loan to value ratio lending restrictions on all residential lending in 2013, the Bankers Association is welcoming the proposals, which have dropped earlier plans to target all owners of more than five residential properties and reclassify them as commercial borrowers.

  • How to Begin Investing in Real Estate US News - 16 hours ago

Australia only allows foreigners to buy new-build properties, but a parliamentary committee inquiry last year found widespread abuse of the system. Hockey said that the Sydney property, called "Villa del Mare" had been bought "illegally" in November by a firm owned by Hong Kong-listed Evergrande Real Estate Group through a string of shell companies in Australia, Hong Kong and the British Virgin Islands.
