Claims Repossession Hotspots Are In London

Charity Shelter says nearly 200,000 households have been threatened with the prospect of losing their home over the past year, and the problem is worse in London than anywhere else.

The 10 hotspots where families are most at risk of repossession or eviction are all London boroughs, with Barking and Dagenham named by Shelter as the area where people are most likely to face losing their home.

Barking and Dagenham has more than three times as many possession claims than the rest of the country, at one in every 37 homes.

Newham, Haringey, Hackney and Southwark made up the rest of the top 5.
