The Mortgage Breathing Space Scheme will provide financial advice and interest free secured loans of up to £15,000 to eligible homeowners who are facing eviction. The scheme is being offered by Doncaster Council and St Leger Homes in partnership with Wakefield Council.
Applicants will only be considered eligible for the scheme if there is a reasonable expectation that they will be able to sustain home ownership in the longer term after the period of assistance provided by the loan; or where time is needed to allow for the sale of the property and a planned move to alternative accommodation.
To be offered this help, applicants must receive independent financial advice before progressing to a loan.
