The Government has denied that the number of repossession claims across England have increased, insisting the numbers have fallen over the past 12 months.
The charity Shelter, who released the figures, warned that families were "living on a knife-edge".
However, a Government spokesman denied the claims saying:
Latest figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders show the numbers of home repossessions haven fallen 8% over the past 12 months and are at their lowest level for six years.
But we are not complacent. Our welfare reforms are ensuring that clear protection is in place, we've maintained the Support for Mortgage Interest scheme and our £470 million funding to councils means we continue to have a strong safety net against homelessness.
