Hazlett Karen is among those who pay interest of 12. 79 per 11 cents on her Northern Rock loans. In 2006, the 44-year-old barber concluded a Northern Rock mortgage. And Karen has registered for the Together mortgage. They lent a whopping 83,000 pounds - a 67,500 pound mortgage and a 15,500 pound private credit. In the first five years it bore interest of 5. 89 per cents; this later fell to 4. 79 per cents when its initial transaction was over and it switched to the bank's default floating interest rat.

Together the transaction consisted of a mortgage of 95?per cents of the value of a real estate and a private credit of up to 30?per cents.

Unfortunately, the "Bad Bank" was re-named Northern Rock Asset Management and never found a purchaser, although last year some accounts with credits were bought. The loan will remain in government ownership and will consist of higher-risk mortgage assets, which include Together loan assets. Nevertheless, Richard Banks, CEO of Northern Rock Asset Management, was earning 815,000 in 2013 and was receiving a salary increase of 27?per cents.
