Disintermediation: the landlord

Here’s an amusing thought.  Quoted over at calculated risk: “We’ve attracted a lot of borrowers who are really renters  It is disheartening as a servicer to see the willingness [to walk away]  [borrowers] simply don’t care.”

Ha!  The bankers have disintermediated the landlord; and like usual when you cut out a middleman you discover, a while later that he had a function which surprise surprise you now have to fill.  And since you haven’t been filling that role well to date there are more surprises to come.  No doubt there is a business opportunity there; a variant of the condo management companies, but this time beholding to the bank rather than the condo board.
