- Statistics & Research
The possession action figures do not indicate how many homes have actually been repossessed, as not all court orders result in repossession and repossessions can occur without a court order being made. However, information on the number of warrants of possession and the number of repossessions by court bailiffs in Wales are also shown below.
- The numbers of mortgage possession claims issued and orders made in the county courts of Wales have been falling annually since 2008.
- During October to December 2015, there were 302 mortgage possession claims and 225 mortgage possession orders made, down by 44 per cent and by 40 per cent, respectively, on the same quarter of 2014(2).
- Mortgage possession warrants and repossessions by court bailiffs have also been falling annually since 2008 with the exception of a small increase in both during 2011.
- During October to December 2015, there were 324 mortgage possession warrants given; down by 40 per cent on the same quarter of 2014. During this same period, mortgage repossessions by court bailiffs decreased by 51 per cent (to 96).
- Following increases during 2012 and 2013, both landlord possession claims issued and orders made decreased again during 2014 and 2015.
- There were 1,319 landlord possession claims made during October to December 2015, a decrease of 8 per cent on the same quarter of 2014. There were 1,116 landlord possession orders made during the quarter, down by 9 per cent compared with the October to December quarter 2014.
- During October to December 2015, 75 per cent of claims and 74 per cent of orders were made on behalf of social landlords.
- Following increases in both landlord possession warrants and repossessions by court bailiffs during 2013 there was a slight decrease in landlord warrants during 2014 whilst landlord repossessions increased. Both decreased again during 2015.
- There were 652 landlord possession warrants issued in October to December 2015, down 2 per cent on the same quarter of 2014. The number of landlord repossessions by county court bailiffs was also down by 2 per cent (to 292) on the same quarter of 2014.
- During October to December 2015, 82 per cent of all landlord possession warrants and 76 per cent of all landlord repossessions were made on behalf of social landlords.
