Property Solicitors In Bradford And Comments On The UK Credit Crunch

Todays Date: November 20, 2018

With the credit crunch forcing many companies into administration, the most savvy of the many flailing companies dotted about the country will look to either latch on to a successful company via means of a merger, or look to the government to bail them out.

Beginning with Northern Rock and leading up to Barclays’ most recent bail out, we have seen many high street banks and building societies rescued by the banks in the previous year or two.

However, when a company becomes nationalised, the shareholders that own parts of the company potentially stand to lose all the money and power that they have invested within the company over the years of their support.

The recent nationalisation of high street building society Bradford and Bingley means that this could be the case for its shareholders, as the Treasury has decided to take over the bank and auction off its elements to anyone who bids the highest.

Now, as the shareholders were not consulted beforehand and all stand to lose all of their investments, a BBC correspondent has referred to the selling off of B & B’s shares as ‘legal robbery’; he states that if it was anyone other than the government that was doing this, then it would be illegal.

The recession has hit the bank hard, especially in the conveyancing area, with house prices plummeting in relation to the flailing economy, however the public are either too scared to buy or sell as they do not know what may be around the corner.

Many investors may think that their shares will rise and fall sporadically and all that they need to do is wait for the right time to sell, yet this is not always the case; the risks associated with investing in shares within a company are often not as clear as they may seem.

According to a Bradford conveyancing solicitor, when unexpected and, most importantly, unpredicted changes occur within the economy, then all bets can be off and the fact that the government have decided to auction off the company’s parts does not entitle the shareholders to any compensation as they should have been aware of the risks when they invested.

Contact a Bradford conveyancing solicitor today to see if they can make things a little clearer for you if you have a query about conveyancing, or would like legal advice concerning any other part of the house purchasing process; remember, always read the small print before you sign on the dotted line!
