Quarterly landlord repossession claims July – September 2014

A landlord possession action starts when a claim is submitted to the courts to repossess a property. The most common reason for repossession is arrears of rent. The court process of possessing a property follows four stages:
·         A claim for a possession being issued by a landlord;
·         An order being made by the County Court.
·         If the defendant fails to leave the property by the date given in the order the order may be enforced by a warrant of possession. This authorises the county court bailiff to evict the tenant. The bailiff then arranges a date to execute the eviction; and,

·         Repossession by a County Court bailiff.  Repossessions may occur without county court bailiffs, through less formal procedures, so the actual number of repossessions is usually greater than the number carried out by county court bailiffs.

The MoJ has today released quarterly mortgage and landlord repossession statistics for the period July to September. There were 40859 claims for repossession in July to September 2014.

There were 11,100 landlord repossessions by county court bailiffs; this is the highest quarterly figure since these statistics were first collated in 2000.
