Help for home owners with mortgage difficulties
Last updated: 23 June 2020


If you're a home owner with financial difficulties and you cannot afford to pay your mortgage, there are measures in place to help you stay in your home.

These include:

You should speak to your lenders right away if you're finding it hard to pay loans secured against your home. Organisations that follow the Lending Code must act sympathetically and positively for their customers who are heading towards financial difficulty.

If you cannot come to an agreement with your lender, you should get independent advice about your financial situation.
