If you’re having difficulties making your mortgage repayments and are in danger of becoming homeless, you could get financial help to stay in your home. This is called the Mortgage Rescue Scheme.
It’s a last resort after you’ve tried all other options to make your repayments easier - talk to your lender first.
What you get depends on your circumstances. You apply through your local council.
Someone in your household must be in ‘priority need’. This could be:
- a pregnant woman
- someone with dependent children
- someone who is vulnerable because of old age or a physical or mental impairment
