How does Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme work?
Under the Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme, the Government offers mortgage lenders the option to purchase a guarantee on mortgages where a borrower has a deposit of between 5% and 20%. Because of this support, participating lenders are able to offer more mortgage products to borrowers with small deposits.
