About this Seminar

Recent sales of thousands of distressed mortgages by the established banks have led to a significant number of new mortgage litigation. That includes both possession proceeds and proceedings for judgment against the borrower. The result is that the courts – including the highest courts – continue to churn out important decisions in what has become a fast-evolving area of law. The Oireachtas too weighed in last year by introducing new rules for possession proceedings, making it harder for banks to take possession.  

The main focus of this seminar is to update practitioners on the latest developments, including the latest judicial decisions (from 2018-2020) in the area of mortgage litigation. As well as that, the seminar also provides a useful recap of the rules which have built up over the past number of years in this area of law.

As always, the seminar includes a booklet of detailed notes.
