  1. What in case a person wants to join this but does not have the 5% of the properties value? and will the customer get any extension to pay the mortgage in case of an emergency where he or she is unable to pay the mortgage on time?

  2. The government will compensate the lender if the property is repossessed and it is unable to recover money from its sale – but only for losses above 80% of the original purchase price. The lender will also have to take a 5% hit, to ensure it does not indulge in offering risky loans.
