About this book

This book evaluates key commercial law aspects of the relevant law and legislation governing residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBSs) in Australia from a legal perspective. Within the context of a “public benefit test” framework, the book seeks to critically evaluate the impact and effectiveness of current law and regulation governing RMBSs. There is a dearth of both academic and practical literature on the legal and regulatory issues surrounding RMBSs in Australia.  The book aims to make a contribution to the formulation of law and public policy by suggesting a number of reforms to the current law and practice surrounding RMBSs in Australia.  In part, these suggested reforms will be based on the lessons learned from the experiences of overseas jurisdictions such as Canada, the U.K, and the United States.

Reviews

“This book masterfully addresses a complex subject: the securitization of home mortgages.  The authors describe the process of securitization, how it injects liquidity into the housing market in Australia, the laws that govern securitization, and needed reforms. They do all this in language non-specialists can understand.  It is a must read for people who are curious about the structures supporting the housing market.” (Kathleen C. Engel, Research Professor of Law, Suffolk University Law School, Boston, USA and co-author of The Subprime Virus: Reckless Credit, Regulatory Failure and Next Steps)
