See an article by Hilary Osborne published in The Guardian about the massive increase in repossessions in the last 3 months. In the article she says
“Official figures from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) showed that between January and March landlords in England and Wales went to court to make 47,220 claims to repossess property – the equivalent of 525 a day.
The vast majority were made by social landlords, including local authorities and housing associations, which took the first steps towards eviction against more than 31,000 tenants – up 13% on the same period last year. Private landlords made nearly 6,500 claims, up 11% on 2013.”
