The Department does not collect data on repossessions. Repossessions data at the UK level are available from the Council of Mortgage Lenders and Financial Services Authority. These data are not split out by sole owners and joint owners, first time buyers and non-first time buyers, or by region. Nor are they split out by different age groups.

The only sub-national figures relating to repossessions are for possession orders. Statistics on mortgage and landlord possession orders for the county courts are available via the Ministry of Justice website at:
