NAMA :The corruption continues

for your attention…. Irish Times Today ….. The corruption continues …….

The National Asset Management Agency has confirmed that a company owned by partners of a UK investment firm have bought a 17 per cent stake in the agency’s holding company.

NAMAIL was established as an investment holding company to facilitate the participation of private investors in the project. The stake, whcih was bought by partners of Walbrook Capital, was previously held by Irish Life.

“The decision to invest in NAMAIL followed a careful assessment of the outlook for the Irish economy and in particular its property sector, which we believe is now close to stabilisation,” said Michael Keeley, senior partner of Walbrook Capital, in the statement.
The transaction has already been approved by the boards of Nama and NAMAIL.
The European Union’s statistics office Eurostat said today the sale of a stake in Nama by Irish Life meant the agency could be classified as a special purpose entityoutside the general gov
ernment sector.


Irish Taxpayers are been shafted once again by well placed “insiders” and in the know .This Government has once again allowed outsiders to rape the taxpayers of this country.

Bend over “Paddy” your about to get another present from the collaborators in this Government.



Wait until the dimwits in the current government present their crushing budget .This price will be views as astronomical .As far as I can see, I see no bottom we have a long way to go to reach that dark place ! With the real unemployment figures concealed from the public I estimate it to be somewhere between 29 an 30%.The banks  are now free to crucified their own customers with penal charges and their own customers are been held hostage to ever increasing interest rates whenever they choose! The current government have washed their hands of the countless thousands of trapped citizen’s snared by toxic and corrupt bankers.

Nama is the real culprit here as they have control on the flow of sales of all types of property in Ireland now and with consent of the government they are drip feeding the sale of property, this option is however not available to the ordinary joe who has just lost his job and is forced to emigrate.

It is outrageous, most of the cheerleaders of the property boom are now employed by NAMA as “experts” and are been paid by the victims of these fraudsters. A day of reckoning is coming and it ant going to be pretty !   I am living in Lubeck In Germany , an Irish emigrant,  and I can smell the stink of this deal from over here .This has all the hallmarks of a financial stroke  by absolute gangsters  on the Board of AIB  and NAMA “Looking after insiders” with a guarantee profit .

NAMA Wine Lake

Jack Fagan has a rare weekend outing in today’s Irish Times where he reveals that a consortium of European investors has bought the four main office blocks of AIB’s Bankcentre in Ballsbridge opposite the RDS. The seller, Aviva is said to have accepted “just over €70m” for the sprawling 154,000 sq ft complex set over four buildings. The property was originally bought in April 2006, a year before the general peak in Irish commercial property, for €177m. Commercial property generally increased by just over 21% between Q1 2006 and Q1 2007 which would have indicated a notional peak valuation of €214m. A €70m price tag today represents a 67.3% decline which is in keeping with the general market as tracked by Ireland’s two commercial property indices from Jones Lang LaSalle and SCSI/IPD.

The tenant in the offices is the 99.8% state-owned AIB which has thus far cost us at least…

NAMA sues Bernard McNamara in Dublin’s High Court

by namawinelake

Poor old Bernard was one of the first mega property developers to admit he had problems back at the start of 2010. Since then, the banks have been working through his outstanding loans. Receivers have since been appointed by the banks to his properties. In the past three months, three of Bernard’s hotels – the Burlington in Dublin, the Parknasilla in Kerry and the Cork International – have all been put up for sale. At NAMA too where Bernard is understood to be a Top 10 developer, the Agency has foreclosed on his loans, including loans on the former Irish Glass Bottle site in Ringsend in Dublin and the Elm Park development in Ballsbridge. And the last we heard of Bernard was that he was carving out a new……………….

NAMA funds work on shopping centre in Taoiseach’s back yard

The people of Claremorris in Mayo are happy today with news that a shopping centre in their town is set to be benefit from NAMA funding. The Silverbridge Shopping Centre is anchored by Tesco with a 50,000 sq ft store, and NAMA is reported to be funding clean-up works on the site including landscaping and laying new footpaths. Mayo is of course An Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s constituency.

The amount of funding from NAMA is not known but it looks modest. It may create a disproportionately large number of winners though….

Glendale Estate in Tullow in Carlow sale

By Namawinelake

NAMA isn’t saying, but according to RTE, the owner of the 63-house Glendale Estate in Tullow in Carlow was Glendale Estates Limited. And according to Iris Oifigiuil, the receiver, Jim Hamilton of BDO Ireland, was appointed to Glendale Estates Limited was at the behest of AIB in February 2011. AIB is one of the five NAMA participating institutions and the property in Tullow is a development property if ever there was one, which would place it in NAMA’s remit. Not only that, but the owners of Glendale include Anton Hunt and Paul Collins,  and NAMA recently had receivers appointed to companies owned by these individuals eg Camion Developments Limited, Neidin Developments Limited.

On the other hand, the property is not apparently listed in the latest NAMA enforcement list, but as we have seen in the past, that list is riddled with errors.

The 63-house estate would have been worth €12.6m-plus at the peak if each of the 63 houses were fully completed and sold for €200,000 apiece. As it happens, the homes need kitchens, but will apparently still fetch €100,000 today when completed. There is also planning permission for an additional 58 homes on the 14-acre property.

€166m sliced off the value of NAMA’s Irish commercial property in Q2, 2012

Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL) has today published its commercial property series for Ireland for Q2, 2012 – the report should be available shortly on the JLL website but for the time being, there is Jack Fagan’s report in today’s Irish Times. The JLL series is one of the two Irish commercial indices referenced by NAMA’s Long Term Economic Value Regulations (Schedule 2) and is used to help calculate the performance of NAMA’s “key markets data” shown at the top of this page. The other quarterly Irish price series is published by SCSI/IPD and will be available on Tuesday 24th July at 3pm; because it is generally published after JLL’s, it is not used here to help compile the NWL index, but the SCSI/IPD index does historically show a very close correlation with JLL’s.

The JLL Index shows that capital values fell in quarter one, 2012 by 2.3% – this means that with the exception of Q4,2011 Irish commercial property has declined in value for 19 of the last 20 quarters and the aberration in Q4,2011 when a 1.2% increase was recorded was due to the exceptional measures set out in Budget 2012 – the reduction in stamp duty on commercial transactions from 6% to 2%, the abandonment of proposals to abolish

“Forensic Due Diligence” being blamed for holding up the Irish commercial property market

By namawinelake

For all you salespeople out there whose managers might be pressuring you to close sales, you now have a novel addition to the excuse manual courtesy of CB Richard Ellis (CBRE). Property services powerhouse and NAMA valuer, CBRE has just published its two-monthly review of the Irish commercial property market and it makes the observation that activity has increased but as a result of the infernal “forensic due diligence”, this activity hasn’t yet translated into actual sales.

The report observes that there is considerably more property coming onto the market, including from NAMA and its debtors. It is reported that the sale of the €27m David Arnold-developed One Warrington Place in central Dublin “has now signed and is due for completion shortly” – the buyer isn’t identified save to say it is a “US investor” but rumours abound that it is a company called Northwood which has made the purchase, after the previous purchaser, Prudential dropped out.
