Mortgage possession at a crossroads: which way should we turn?

Whitehouse, Lisa



The unification of the regulation of first and second mortgages in 2016 has raised the question as to the appropriate route for possession claims: is it the Administration of Justice Act 1970 or the Consumer Credit Act 1974? In making the case for the latter, this article evidences the disparity in the resilience experienced by the parties and the potential for the CCA 1974 to offer an effective response to it.
