Government mortgage schemes
Mortgage Guarantee Scheme
Announced in the March 2021 budget, the Mortgage Guarantee Scheme is available from April 2021 and offers the chance for first time buyers, as well as existing homeowners, to obtain a mortgage loan of 95% of the value of a property, provided they can raise a deposit for the remaining 5%. As it’s a high amount, lenders are being incentivised by the government (through a guarantee system) to encourage them to make the funds available to borrow.
