The author examines the Mortgage Repossession Act 2010 of Great Britain which will protect tenants who are facing eviction as a result of the landlords' mortgage arrears. According to the Council of Mortgage Lenders' 2009 data, lenders repossessed 46,000 homes of which about 2,500 involved unauthorised tenancies. The law gives unauthorised tenants the right to suspend a possession order for two months. It also allows the tenant to delay the warrant of execution by two months if they did not apply to court before the possession order was issued.
