- 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 January to March 2016, there were 336 mortgage possession claims and 206 mortgage possession orders made, down by 20 per cent and by 38 per cent, respectively, on the same quarter of 2015 (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 January to March 2016, there were 355 mortgage possession warrants given; down by 21 per cent on the same quarter of 2015. During this same period, mortgage repossessions by court bailiffs decreased by 24 per cent (to 115).
- Following increases during 2012 and 2013, both landlord possession claims issued and orders made decreased again during 2014 and 2015.
- There were 1,420 landlord possession claims made during January to March 2016, a decrease of 12 per cent on the same quarter of 2015. There were 1,136 landlord possession orders made during the quarter, down by 13 per cent compared with January to March 2015.

- 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 659 landlord possession warrants issued in January to March 2016, which is similar to the same quarter of 2015. The number of landlord repossessions by county court bailiffs was down by 12 per cent (to 332) on the same quarter of 2015.
