    Abstract

    We Investigate the socio-economic determinants of mortgage delinquency in 12EU countries and observe that income volatility in income is high enough. From this result we can draw the following conclusions:i) mortgage protection insurance policies might be failing to cover those borrowers most in need; ii) the existence of credit market imperfection, and;iii) the inability for a number of borrowers most at income risk to accumulate precautionary savings in order to meet morgage payments when stocks in imcome rise.
