Often when reviewing outstanding loan books, either for the purposes of recovery or sale of same, many creditors find that they have a high concentration of exposures in specific areas. These reviews can identify a significant underestimation of the extent to which these customers were borrowing from the other lenders. These reviews can also identify a high volume of personally guaranteed loans which are not always supported by verification of the personal wealth of the guarantor and in some instances these guarantees have proven to be far less valuable than presumed.
As part of the recovery process, these creditors, mainly banks and lending institutions, seek a comprehensive review of current and recently disposed of assets of the relevant individual.
