Furloughed workers face challenge getting mortgages

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Furloughed workers face challenge getting mortgages” – below is their description.

If it wasn’t already a struggle to get onto the housing ladder, things just got that much harder for people on furlough. While the pandemic has sent the wealthy rushing to snap up desirable countryside homes, many people – including the millions currently on furlough – are finding it a challenge to get a mortgage in the first place. Even people who have viable jobs and expect to go back to full time work next year are being turned down by lenders.
