The Affordable Housing and Fair Mortgage Bill 2018

The Bill aims to introduce legislative measures to help challenge evictions unless the Court is satisfied about:

(a) the mortgagor’s distressed loan being offered to an ethical fund and/or not-for-profit organisation and reasons why, if any, that this approach was declined;

(b) its judicial examination for unfair terms;

(c) the question of appropriateness of eviction in the circumstances (i.e. proportionality);

and finally

(d) the availability of suitable alternative accommodation within a reasonable locale before an Execution Order is granted
