The government has confirmed that Help to Buy equity loan borrowers will be offered interest payment holidays if they are struggling to pay due to coronavirus.

The Help to Buy scheme offers an equity loan where the government lends first-time buyers and existing homeowners money to buy a newly-built home.

The government announced the holiday as part of a radical package of measures to protect renters and landlords affected by coronavirus.
