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.
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.
In addition a data visualisation tool is included through Tableau Public, facilitating users to interrogate the data easily.
