Community Law & Mediation, FLAC and the Phoenix Project, with the support of the Citizen’s Information Board, have written a Guide to Possession Proceedings in both the Circuit Court and High Court for those in mortgage arrears facing repossession of their family home.  This project was undertaken as a result of the current trend towards increased applications for court ordered possession of family homes in mortgage arrears and against the backdrop of the paucity of legal assistance for borrowers facing such legal proceedings.  The aim of the project is to provide easily digestible information for borrowers served with such court proceedings to empower them to make informed decisions and to somewhat address the current power imbalance that exists in favour of lending institutions.
