22,592 private renting households evicted over the past 12 months

Shelter says the “terrible impact” of welfare cuts and “chronic lack” of affordable homes is reflected in the 22,592 private renting households in England evicted by bailiffs in the last twelve months – the equivalent of 56,480 people and 88% higher than the number five years ago.

Shelter spoke out on the release of latest mortgage and landlord repossession statistics from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) this week.

Earlier in the week Shelter research revealed that 1 in 3 working families wouldn’t be able to afford their home for more than a month if they lost their job.

The loss of a private tenancy remains the single biggest cause of homelessness in the country.
