The Fear of Eviction

Millions have started 2014 in fear of eviction. 4000 people were surveyed and one in 11 say they will find it hard to find enough money to cover their housing costs. Nearly two thirds say they are in danger of falling behind with rent or mortgage payments.
The charity Shelter, found that families with children are finding it the hardest to cope. Seven in ten said that they find it tough to cover their rent or mortgage.
Shelter, who commissioned the survey said the crisis is due to a combination of high housing costs (including the “bedroom tax”), wage freezes, increases in food prices and high energy costs.
