! Murcia today – The region of Murcia has the highest deportation rate in the country
Murcia also tops the ranking of foreclosure lawsuits in 2021
Before the courts, the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis have led the Region of Murcia to have the highest number of foreclosure lawsuits per 100,000 inhabitants, in the whole country; According to data from the General Judicial Council (CGPJ), in the second quarter of this year, the courts of Murcia dealt with 32.9 of these cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
However, comparing the figures for 2021 with 2020 is of little use because, at the start of the pandemic, most judicial activity in Spain was paralyzed, but compared to data from the last seven years, the first months of 2021 show a definitive increase from the steady decline in foreclosures since the record figures of 2014.
In addition, the Region ranks not only at the top of foreclosure procedures, but also in the rate of eviction for non-payment of a mortgage. In just three months, there were 247 of these evictions, an average of more than two per day. And, with a rate of 16.3 mortgage evictions per 100,000 inhabitants, the region ranks as the most affected community in Spain.
Likewise, between April and June, there were as many as 350 evictions of rented property for non-payment of rent. Although Murcia does not rank first in this category, the region still ranks fourth, with a rate of 23.1 per 100,000 inhabitants, after the Balearics (26.2), the Canaries (25.8) and Catalonia (24.5).
Murcia also ranks fourth among residents going bankrupt between April and June; 6.8 per 100,000 inhabitants.
