    Mortgage Guarantee Scheme

     

      • Scheme starts: 19 April 2021
      • Scheme ends: December 2022

    The mortgage guarantee scheme announced at Budget 2021; will help to increase the supply of 5% deposit mortgages for credit-worthy households by supporting lenders to offer these products through a government backed guarantee.

    The scheme follows on from the successful 2013 Help to Buy: Mortgage Guarantee Scheme, which helped to restore the low deposit mortgage market after the financial crisis, giving those who could afford mortgage repayments but not the larger deposits the chance to buy a new or bigger home.

    How does the mortgage guarantee scheme work?

    The mortgage guarantee scheme offers lenders the option to purchase a guarantee on mortgages where a borrower has a deposit of only 5%.

    The guarantee compensates mortgage lenders for a portion of net losses suffered in the event of repossession. The guarantee applies down to 80% of the purchase value of the guaranteed property covering 95% of these net losses. The lender therefore retains a 5% risk in the portion of losses covered by the guarantee. This ensures that the lender retains some risk in every loan they originate.
