To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many house repossessions were laid before the courts in each month in each of the last three years, broken down by (a) constituency and (b) region; and how many of these were approved by the court. 
The following tables show the number of mortgage and landlord possession claims issued, suspended orders and outright orders made in the county courts of England and Wales, broken down by Her Majesty Court Service region, since 2005.
The data are not currently available by constituency.
Court level statistics on mortgage and landlord repossession actions from 1987 to 2007 are available on the Ministry of Justice website at:
These figures do not indicate how many houses have been repossessed through the courts, since not all the orders will have resulted in the issue and execution of warrants of possession.
The civil procedure rules state that all claims for the repossession of land must be commenced in the district in which the land is situated. As county courts jurisdictions are not coterminous with the borough boundaries, any single Court's repossession actions are likely to relate to homes in a number of different boroughs.
