By Janet Ford, Alison Wallace, Moira Munro, Nigel Sprigings and Susan Smith

This report is the second of two, to explore the impact of a range of temporary measures introduced in 2009 and 2010 to provide additional help to owner occupiers with a mortgage who were eligible to claim out-of- work benefits.

The Department for Work and Pensions commissioned the University of York to explore the responses of lenders, money advisers, Jobcentre Plus staff and key policy stakeholders to these changes and the impact of these responses on the effectiveness of Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI).
