Mortgages: Government Assistance

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many individuals received financial help under the home owners mortgage support scheme in each month from September 2008 to May 2009; and if she will make a statement. (277273)

The scheme opened with the first group of lenders on 21 April. Borrowers apply to the Homeowners Mortgage Support scheme through their lender. Before being admitted to the scheme, they need to take money advice. We have worked with the participating lenders to produce a proportionate reporting system. This will provide statistics which will be published on a regular basis.
