Settlement proposals for 137 borrowers were completed by the end of February through the new bankruptcy code which is increasing its effect at a slow pace since the platform for out-of-court debt settlement has been visited by 48,897 people with unregulated debts.

Under the new framework, the settlement proposals are automatically generated using an algorithm, which takes into account the value of the property and disposable income of both the debtor and his co-borrowers – guarantors. In order to proceed, they must be accepted by those interested. The delay in submitting more applications according to the Ministry of Finance is mainly due to the prerequisite for the lifting of banking secrecy for all those involved.

Typical examples of successful settlement proposals that have been sent to debtors for acceptance in recent times are the following:

A three-member family from Attica, with an annual family income of 16,400 euros and a property of 91,700 euros, owned an up-to-date mortgage with real security, amounting to a debt of 124,500 euros. With the solution of the proposed regulation, he will be asked to repay a remaining loan of 76,100 euros, with a loan installment of 213 euros, which will gradually increase to 324 euros and a remaining repayment period of 420 months. In case of compliance with the regulation, she will receive a write-off of 48,400 euros, ie 38.8% of her loan.

A family of three from Attica, with an annual family income of 16,500 euros and a fortune of 80,400 euros, held an overdue mortgage loan with a security of 104,700 euros. With the proposed settlement solution, he will be asked to repay a remaining loan of 59,600 euros, with a loan installment of 166 euros, which will gradually increase to 253 euros and a remaining repayment period of 420 months. In case of compliance with the regulation, she will receive a write-off of 45,100 euros, ie 43% of her loan.

A two-member family from Ilia, with an annual family income of 14,400 euros and a fortune of 210,300 euros, held an overdue consumer loan of 41,900 euros. With the proposed settlement solution, he will be asked to repay the total amount of 41,900 euros, with a loan installment of 265 euros and a remaining repayment period of 240 months.
