Eviction in Ireland in 2012: I stopped the sheriff
This post was written by Stephen Kinsella
This is very much the business end of the mortgage arrears and/or debt forgiveness debate (which Seamus looked at in an earlier post).
It seems that a number of groups have gotten together to stop the enforcement of eviction orders, and in at least one case, two days ago, they were at least temporarily successful. NamaWineLake has the details. Be sure to watch the video as well.
What’s fascinating from watching the video is how reasonable everyone is, given the obvious tensions in the air. There is a discussion, and a withdrawal from the property of the authorities who came to serve a notice to quit. The circumstances of the borrower in question are also highlighted in a linked piece.
