Mortgage rescue scheme six months on



All local authorities in the UK have now signed up to the government’s mortgage rescue scheme, with as many as 300 households already qualifying for the support plan. Communities and Local Government says the impact of the £200 million scheme introduced in September 2015 to prevent as many as 6,000 repossessions from occurring is difficult to assess as take up of it is ‘demand-led’, so it is under constant review.
