Banks and Mortgage lenders should build a list of the damaged homes and refuse to lend to these people money in the future (say 20 years)... they pose a high risk. Obviously a high interest rate does not mitigate the risk. Or if a loan were to be granted... require them to hold PMI until they have 50% equity in the home or pay 30 to 50% down. Plus, Banks providing HELOCS and Seconds should be wary and mitigate the risk.
That sounds fair to me. Any bank should be able to know the history of someone applying for a loan.
Does this happen in reality? Or at some point is the slate wiped clean (like a statute of limitations?)?
