Many debts of great value, even though their prices have been lowered many times, are still not available for sale for many years. There are many bad debts with adequate collateral, but banks still find it difficult to liquidate.
Only in the first half of May, Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade (VietinBank) issued dozens of notices about the auction of assets and debts to recover and handle bad debts. Most of the debts being sold by this bank are of great value from a few dozen to several hundred billion dong.
In there, VietinBank Uong Bi has just announced the auction of debts of Quang Trung Industry Group Joint Stock Company (Quang Trung Group). The starting price for the above debt announced by VietinBank is VND 460,412 billion, equal to the debt value. In case the first auction with the above starting price is unsuccessful, the bank will reduce the starting price to continue auctioning the debt, each time reducing the price by no more than 10% of the starting price of the auction. failed before.

But after 10 unsuccessful sales, BIDV accepted to lower the price by nearly half to 1,154 billion dong, which means that the bank accepted to spend more than 1,000 billion dong of interest arising in this loan to recover the principal. .

It is not easy to sell collateral to recover debt
Explaining the reason why banks are selling collateral, despite the continuous decline in prices, experts say that the main reason is because economy Post-COVID-19 difficulties persist, asset trading market has low liquidity. Up to now, although the economy is gradually recovering, it is not easy to find investors with enough financial capacity to buy back large-scale debts.
The liquidation of low-value collateral is easier to handle. As for properties of great value, from tens to hundreds of billions of dong, it will be more difficult to sell. It usually takes banks many times to sell and then lower the price to liquidate.
The auction real estate As collateral, there are many legal procedures related to mortgage release and asset valuation. Many mortgages are real estate that requires the consent of the property owner. There are many plots of land as collateral for debts related to many organizations and individuals, so the ownership transfer takes a long time.
Furthermore, many collateral assets are valued at a value that is not close to market price So even if the price is reduced, it is still difficult to sell. The collateral property cannot be sold at too much discount, so each time the sale is sold, the price only drops, causing the property to be auctioned many times but still unsuccessful.
Banks are having to speed up the process of liquidation and auction of collateral, especially in the context that bad debts are expected to have a high risk of increasing when many regulatory policies are about to expire. After June 30, Circular 14/2021/TT-NHNN regarding debt rescheduling, exemption and reduction of interest and fees, and retention of debt groups to support customers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. will expire. Resolution 42/2017/QH14 on piloting bad debt settlement of credit institutions will also expire this August.
