Help for home owners with mortgage difficulties

Last updated: 6 July 2017

Overview

If you're a home owner with financial difficulties and you can't 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 can't come to an agreement with your lender, you should get independent advice about your financial situation.
