Report: Defaults on commercial real estate loans a looming economic crisis

 

WASHINGTON - Over the next several years, failed commercial real estate loans could litter American cities with empty stores and office complexes, cause hundreds of bank failures, and weaken the economy, a watchdog report says.

 

Banks face up to $300 billion in losses on loans made for commercial property and development, according to a report released Thursday by the Congressional Oversight Panel.  The panel monitors the government's efforts to stabilize the financial system.

 

The report says the defaults could lead to reduced lending and cause the eviction of families from rental properties.  Bank failures also could contribute to job losses and hurt the economic recovery.
