PP, ERC and PDeCAT support mortgage aid and Podemos asks to expand it
PP, ERC and PDeCAT support the mortgage relief measures approved by the Council of Ministers, while Podemos is committed to raise ambition of the measures to benefit all those affected, not just a third, and demand that they be mandatory for banks. The Government has approved a battery of measures from which they can benefit more than a million homesthat is, one in three households with variable-rate mortgages and, therefore, affected by the rise in the Euribor, may see their financial burden.
In statements to the media, the deputy spokesman of the PP in charge of economic issues, jamie de olanohas assured that, although they consider that it falls “a bit short”, they are “necessarily in agreement” with the measure, since it is “exactly the same thing” that they claimed in their amendment to the levy law.
The PP considers that the decree law should also include a negative tax on income of less than 14,000 euros and extend the measures up to income of 40,000 euros per year, since they also “may have difficulties to meet their mortgage.” In addition, Olano has criticized that the Government is “the only one that is not doing no kind of effort“even though it has” a tax collection like never before”.
We can ask for mandatory measures
In the case of Podemos, its Secretary General and Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, has announced that her political party will continue to “propose more ambitious and mandatory measures for banks” that allow support for “all families.” Likewise, the deputy of Podemos Rafael Mayoral He considers that it will be necessary to “do many more things and change the legal architecture of the social activity of the entities”, although he has clarified that they have not said that they are going to oppose it.
Mayoral has criticized the “major legislative deficiencies” of the Real Estate Credit Law and has called for “a regulation that limits the liability of the mortgaged asset, that regulates dation in payment, that articulates removal mechanisms that prevent families from enriching themselves in serious situations Vulture funds“.
The ERC spokesman in Congress, Gabriel Rufián, has assured that the measure “seems good” to his group in the absence of “knowing the fine print”, while that of the PDeCat, Ferran Bellhas stated that it is “a significant breakthrough“, so they are willing “to be able to collaborate” so that the royal decree can “be approved by Congress.” In the case of EH Bildu, his spokesman, Mertxe Aizpurúahas not confirmed whether his group will support the measure, but has assured that they will fight “so that whoever has to face a mortgage increase without resources can face a dignified life”.
CC.OO. sees the measures “insufficient”
As the union organization has assured in a statement, “the measures palliative announced will not be enough to stop the growing mortgage effort that indebted households will bear in a context of rate hikes and higher average rates”.
The union has indicated that the main problem within the package of measures adopted is that “preserves and maintains a scheme carried out for years by variable rates, today a minority in new loans, but dominant in the stock of outstanding loans and affected by the current and foreseeable increase in installments to be paid”. In his opinion, these temporary palliative measures will not prevent increases of rates, which will continue to intensify in the next months.
Likewise, the CCOO has indicated that the announced measures do not make sufficient reference to the fixed rate mortgages, “when they should be the central element on which to articulate the proposal if the objective is to curb the negative impact of the rise in rates on households and on the financial system”. In this sense, the union has complained that measures are not included to promote the bank offer of fixed-rate mortgages and promote banking competition in Mortgage novation or subrogation.
“The current situation requires conjunctural measures that guarantee the financial sustainability of mortgaged households and of the entities that lent them the money, but also of structural measures, which do not appear in the Government’s proposal, that guarantee a healthy, balanced mortgage system with a increased competition among financial institutions“, has underlined.
