The real estate market crashed in 2007. Within minutes, hundreds of subprime lenders were out of business. The seller's market quickly became the buyer's market and property values went into a momentum of constant decline. The short sale process became a viable option for lenders and borrowers, both. Do not simply walk away from your property, stay the course, but if foreclosure is imminent, a short sale will salvage your credit. If mortgage payments are current, generally a short sale will reduce the borrower's credit score by 50 points and the score will slowly increase again when the process is complete. However, if the mortgage payments are delinquent, then the missed and late payments are what will drain the credit score approximately 100-150 points, but the short sale will increase that score within months. If the property forecloses a borrower will have to wait 5-7 years before obtaining another mortgage loan. A short sale is a win/win.
Micheler analyses the German, Austrian and English law of securities, addressing the rules governing transfers of securities, including unauthorised transfers, equities arising out of defective issues, and the holding of securities through intermediaries. The book presents an account of the current English, German and Austrian regimes. It has been written with a view to explaining the German and Austrian regime to readers with a common law background and to explaining the English regime to readers with a civil law background. Micheler also aims to determine whether globalisation will cause the two different approaches to converge. It concludes that the respective rules in all three jurisdictions have historically evolved consistently with incumbent legal doctrine. This pattern of change is likely to continue. Convergence will occur on a functional rather than doctrinal level. Moreover, recent reform initiatives advanced by the UNIDROIT and the EU will lead to functional rather than doctrinal convergence.
Duncan Campbell leaves Australia to buy the ancient Castle Airde in the Scottish Highlands, which at one time protected the legendary William Wallace. A mysterious collie dog appears, that leaves no footprints in the snow. Youngest child Dottie says she sees a 'Big Man' in the chapel.

There could be a ghost! There could be a monster! There certainly is a kidnapping - with the hostages thrown into a cold, dark dungeon on Christmas Eve! Will the very nasty Major Fordyce win the day? Or will Scottie the wonder dog help the Campbells live happily ever after?
