West London renters are being evicted from their homes at a record rate, according to new data.
Ministry of Justice figures show that the number of renters evicted from their homes reached a record high in several west London boroughs last year.
The figures - compiled by Trinity Mirror's Data Journalism Unit - reveal that the number of Londoners evicted from rented property has risen more than three quarters in a decade.
In Ealing, there were 771 cases of tenants turfed out of their homes through the courts in 2014 - the borough’s highest total since records began, in 2003.
There were more than 15,000 cases last year - the highest ever - with 19 of the capital’s 33 boroughs reporting a record high.
The number of cases jumped 30.7% in Ealing and 31.7% in Harrow.
The 791 cases recorded in Brent in 2014 was the fifth highest total in the capital - more than two cases per day.
The 458 cases recorded in Hillingdon is more than treble the 146 cases the borough recorded ten years ago in 2004.
Across England and Wales, there were nearly 42,000 cases of tenants ordered to leave their homes through the courts last year - the highest figure since national records began in 2000.
Repossessions through the courts usually start with a claim by a landlord, often because the tenant is behind on their rent.
The court can order a repossession or it can issue a suspended order with some conditions for the defendant to follow.
If the tenant doesn’t leave the property in time or doesn’t comply with the conditions then the court can issue a warrant to evict them.
