Mortgage repossession

Coronavirus update

From 31 October lenders can start court action for repossession again.

However the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has told lenders they cannot ask bailiffs to evict you until after 31 January 2021.

Court action for repossession should always be a last resort. Your lender should offer support if you're struggling.
