Little data is published on the details of possession hearings – the court cases where judges decide whether landlords or mortgage lenders can move to evict tenants and homeowners. So the Bureau sent reporters out to 30 possession courts across England and Wales over the summer.

Our team of reporters attended hearings between 8 July and 1 September, and together we logged 683 hearings. Select a region or court with the menu below to explore our findings.
