Details

The bulletin presents the latest statistics on the numbers of mortgage and landlord possession actions in the county courts of England and Wales. These statistics are a leading indicator of the number of properties to be repossessed and the only source of sub-national possession information. In addition to monitoring court workloads, they are used to assist in the development, monitoring and evaluation of policy both nationally and locally.

This release contains an additional annex related to coronavirus (COVID-19). This annex provides further detail of the early impact of COVID-19 related actions on possession actions from March 2020. Due to continued recovery, this will be the last time we publish this annex focusing on the Coronavirus period.

A supporting document is included alongside the bulletin with background information on the mortgage court system, policy background, methodology used, a user guide to the data CSVs, and other useful sources of mortgage statistics.
