More Galway families could face Repossessions Court senator warns

Mon, Jul 25, 2016

With 120 Galway families before the Repossessions Court in Galway recently due to mortgage difficulties, more families could find themselves in similar circumstances a Galway senator has warned.

Sinn Féin senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh, who recently attended the Repossessions Court, described the Galway figure as "startling" and said it should be "a wakeup call to the Government" that mortgage distress "remains a key problem facing families".

However the An Cheathrú Rua based senator is concerned more Galway families will end up in danger of losing their homes as the Government’s new housing and homelessness action plan "offers little solace for the thousands of people in mortgage distress".
