Petition Allow people to pay their mortgage through salary sacrifice
The Government should allow all mortgage contributions towards an individual's main residence / family home to be made through salary sacrifice, prior to tax and national insurance deductions (similar to pension contributions).
This would allow more people to become mortgage free sooner in life and put more towards their and their children's future. It could also help divorced couples, where people are having to start life all over again, on their own, at a late age. The rising cost of living and house prices makes paying off a mortgage extremely challenging for many people.
The value of the mortgage that people could pay off using salary sacrifice could be capped, so that it only benefited those who are in need.
