Trapped By My Mortgage

Hundreds of thousands of homeowners thought they had been saved when the government took over their mortgages during the financial crisis. But ten years on, the former Northern Rock customers are still trapped on high interest rates and now their mortgages have been taken over by an aggressive private equity fund. Reporter Andy Verity meets the families who say they have been sold out by their own government.

Original idea, part of four years investigating the influx of private equity money into residential housing across Europe and the United States since the 2008 financial crisis. Early funding provided by Journalismfund.eu administers grants to foster exemplary in-depth journalism throughout Europe and to promote journalistic innovation.

The film is nominated for a 2019 Wincott Award supporting and encouraging high quality economic, financial and business journalism.
