Life in Mortgage Distress Report

A new, first report on the experiences of people coping with mortgage distress, launched today, reveals a picture of shame, silence, stress, lack of legal representation, rejection in court and a failure by state support systems like MABS and Abhaile to support them adequately.

House Hold is a preliminary look at the experiences of people in mortgage distress and at risk of losing their homes. It has been compiled by Community Action Network (CAN) and is based on information gathered at a series of eight public information sessions held in 2018, and a survey. The project will continue to gather information over the coming year.
