Banks moved on over 50 Mayo property-owners who were before last week’s sitting of the County Registrar’s Court about difficulties relating to mortgages and other loans.
An unprecedented 56 cases – the majority of which were in the early stages of litigation involving Civil Bills for repossession – were processed by Mr Fintan Murphy, the County Registrar. This time last year there were only about two such cases before the same court.
One young couple with a small baby told the court that they were served with notice of the proceedings even though they were just tenants of a property …Another couple before the court explained that they would not be able to maintain their mortgage because their marriage had broken down.
