NEW statistics have revealed that almost 100 families per day were evicted from their homes in Spain last year.
Over 95 families struggled to meet their payments each day in 2014.
Moreover, a staggering total of 119,442 foreclosures took place over a range of different properties including offices, farms and holiday homes last year.
The number of 10% higher than the year before.
Figures from Spain´s National Institute of Statistics, INE, revealed that over 95 families were ousted from their homes each day as they failed to stretch to their mortgage payments.
The economic crisis hit in 2008 and saw seven years of recession from which the country is only starting to recover in recent months.
The regions hit the hardest were Andalucia, Catalonia and Valencia.
Electoral campaigns have concentrated on house evictions and temporary changes were made to protect some of Spain´s most vulnerable residents.
More optimistically, unemployment in January 2015 was calculated at 23.7%, down from 25.93% the same time last year.
