83 applications for home repossession before Wexford Court
There were 83 applications for possession, most of them concerning family homes, listed in the Wexford Registrar's list at the courthouse in Wexford on Monday.
There was a response to the majority of cases brought by various financial institutions for possession.
During the course of the morning possession orders were granted in just seven of the applications.
While the figure for possession granted was just seven it is said to be on the increase given that there is a sitting every second and fourth Monday of each month.
The majority of applications were in respect of primary homes. While the figures are said to be on the increase Wexford is one of the counties where the fewest orders are granted.
The respondents in the majority of cases sought adjournments to allow for negotiations to continue with the various Financial institutions.
Most of the applications have been adjourned back to a future sitting of the Registrar's List.
