Sadiq Khan calls for Help to Buy loans grace period extension
By Yasmin Rufo
London's mayor has called on the government to extend the interest-free period on Help to Buy loans to help those facing increasing costs.
First-time buyers who took out a loan on the government's scheme were given a five-year grace period during which they did not have to pay interest.
Sadiq Khan has called for this fee-free period to be extended, saying it would give people "breathing space".
The government said supporting homeowners was a "priority".
