Consumer information leaflets for the Mortgage Rescue Scheme and Homeowners Mortgage Support have been designed and produced at a cost of £9,000 for both leaflets. Hard copies are provided in response to requests from delivery partners and the Homeowners Mortgage Support leaflet is available to interested households and delivery partners electronically.
HSBC, Barclays, Alliance and Leicester, Abbey and Nationwide have been offering their customers comparable arrangements to the Homeowners Mortgage Support Scheme, while opting not to take up the Government guarantee, since their commitment to do so in the press notice published by Communities and Local Government on 21 April 2009.
The press notice is available at:
Standard Life Bank formally joined the Homeowners Mortgage Support Scheme on Wednesday 20 May 2009. The Government continue to work closely with the Bank of Ireland, GE Money, GMAC, Kensington Mortgages and the Post Office, all of whom are committed to join the scheme, to ensure that they are in a position to offer the Homeowners Mortgage Support Scheme as soon as possible.
