You can be allowed to stay in your home after a repossession hearing. This may be because there wasn't a good enough reason to repossess the home or because the Master believed you should be allowed to stay to give you time to put the situation right.
You cannot get benefits to help pay your mortgage. The only help available is a loan that can cover some of the interest you pay on your mortgage. This loan is called Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI).
If you get certain benefits, you might be able to get help to pay the interest on your mortgage. This help will be a loan and you'll have to repay the money if you sell your home. You'll normally have to wait almost 10 months from the date you start getting other benefits until you'll get help towards your mortgage.
