Written answers (Question to Finance)

I have been advised by the Central Bank of Ireland that their Mortgage Arrears and Repossessions Statistics collect the number of new restructured accounts per quarter, (including new restructures and further modifications of existing restructures), as well as the stock of restructured account. However, the Central Bank have stated that it is not possible to split restructures out between those inherited and those implemented by the new loan owners.
