Empty Houses

Ryan Wood made this Freedom of Information request to Hartlepool Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hartlepool Council,

I am looking for data on home-owners who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments.

They may have had a court hearing and have fallen into arrears.

I am looking to buy in the area and therefore can offer a solution.

As the court hearings are public data, can you kindly supply me with the house address' that the court hearings are regarding within the last 12 months?


Yours faithfully,

Ryan Wood
