Justipedia explains Credit Related Expenses
Since the 2008 financial crash/housing market crash that occurred in the United States, the topic of credit related expenses has become much more of a household term. Many banks and other mortgage lenders experienced an extremely high percentage of credit related expense after the underwater mortgage crisis happened. Many times, when a home is foreclosed, the lender does not even break even on the house. Homes that have been foreclosed on usually sell for pennies on the dollar and result in high credit related expenses.
