The Mortgage Guarantee Scheme will be extended by a year to the end of December 2023, helping people with 5% deposits on to the property ladder, the UK government has announced.

Under the scheme, the government offers lenders the financial guarantees they need to provide mortgages that cover the other 95%, subject to the usual affordability checks, on a house worth up to £600,000.

Launched in April 2021, the scheme has already helped over 24,000 households. It was originally planned to close at the end of this year but will now be extended until the end of 2023.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury, John Glen MP, said:

'For hard-working families facing today's challenging economic conditions, it's right that we continue to help them secure their first home or move into their dream house.

'Extending this scheme means thousands more have the chance to benefit, and supports the market as we navigate through these difficult times.'
