Poll: Have you fallen behind on your mortgage repayments?

Figures from the Central Bank show that more and more mortgages are falling behind on repayments. Is yours among them?

While many housing estates around the country lie unfinished, the number of mortgages in arrears continues to grow.

NEW FIGURES published by the Central Bank this morning show that the number of residential mortgages falling into arrears continued to grow in the last quarter of 2011.

The data shows that 9.2 per cent of all mortgages are over three months behind in repayments – and that if all mortgage arrears was split evenly across all mortgages in Ireland, each one would be €1,453 behind on its repayments.

The figures don’t take account, however, of those mortgages which might be only one or two payments behind – because they only reflect those who are more than 90 days in arrears.

Because it’s likely that there are quite a few households which are behind on their mortgages by less than three months, today we’re asking you whether you’ve fall behind in mortgage payments, and by how much.

Have you fallen behind on your payments?


Poll Results:

No - I'm paying on time every month (1669)
I don't have a mortgage (1021)
Yes - by six months or more (236)
Yes - by one month (147)
Yes - by three months or more (145)
Yes - by two months (88)
Yes - I've been evicted (37)
