According to statistics of the General Council of the Judiciary, the eviction trials begun in 2013 represented 82.860 cases. The number means a 9.8% decrease in comparison to the previous year.
As the Council explained, the lower number “could be backed by the amended Law that allows protective measures for the mortgage debtors, debt restructuring and social renting”.
Moreover, the report reveals that the number of evictions conducted by lower and joint courts showed 67.189 cases, out of which 38.4% derived from mortgage executions, 56.8% corresponded to the Urban Letting Act and 4.8 % to other reasons.
