A PROPOSAL TO introduce debt forgiveness for mortgage-holders unable to meet their home loan payments has today gained more traction and support.

Constantin Gurdgiev has further reiterated his support for mortgage debt relief, following fellow economist Morgan Kelly’s calls for a similar measure last week. Housing super junior minister Willie Penrose has also said that he thinks it’s a good idea.

What do you think? Should mortgage debt relief be introduced?


Poll Results:

Yes - but there should be a percentage write-off on all mortgages (1096)
No - we can't afford it (695)
Yes - but only available to those who are in danger of losing their home (528)
I don't know (101)
