The controversial insolvency laws which took two years to devise are in for an overhaul. A new protocol is being devised which will attempt to make the process easier to use and more straight forward. Noeline Blackwell Director of Free Legal Advice Centres was on the line.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0110/496962-today-with-sean-o-rourke-friday-10-january-2014/?clipid=1391411
In his television address at the weekend to mark the end of the bailout programme the Taoiseach Enda Kenny said banks must do more to deal with (those in) mortgage distress. But report a from Government yesterday revealed that few people in mortgage arrears have used an independent financial advice service set up last year, though more than 100,000 people remain in difficulties. Sean was joined by Noeline Blackwell Director General of the Free Legal Advice Centres(FLAC), who is not impressed at what’s been done to help those in trouble.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2013/1217/493362-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-17-december-2013/?clipid=1379357
From today people who are in severe financial difficulty will be able to make applications to the Insolvency Service of Ireland to have their debts restructured. It’s a much heralded new approach to dealing with the mortgage crisis here but it will be some time before we can see how effective it is in practice. Joining Sean in studio were Noeline Blackwell, director general of FLAC and financial advisor Michael Dowling who represents 40 former residents of Priory Hall in Dublin.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2013/0909/473117-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-9-september-2013/?clipid=1306540
Recently one of the major banks ,PTSB, is reported to have done a deal with up to 1,000 homeowners who are in arrears by reducing their mortgage repayments. Other banks are showing no signs of being more understanding to their customers – last week AIB claimed that one in five mortgage holders were selectively defaulting, though that’s being challenged by many commentators. Noeline Blackwell, Director of FLAC spoke to Myles.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0805/466429-today-with-myles-dungan-monday-5-august-2013/?clipid=1282673

You might remember last week Karl Deeter mentioning that he had a simple idea guide how the banks deal with those in marriage arrears. How is the repayment figure set? Well the banks would assess, using their own criteria, how much they would lend to a customer in their current circumstances and how much the repayment should be. That should be the repayment amount? Too simplistic to be effective? Well for her opinion Pat was joined by Noeline Blackwell from Free Legal Advice Centres who is no stranger to these situations.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0501/389681-today-with-pat-kenny-wednesday-1-may-2013/?clipid=1074735
