Mortgages - Financial Conduct Authority


Last Modified: 12/09/2014
Buying a property will be the biggest purchase many of us ever make. We want you to get the right advice and the best deal for your circumstances.

We regulate firms and individuals that are involved in advising on, arranging or managing home finance, which includes mortgages, home purchase plans and home reversion plans. This means firms involved have to be authorised by us.

We also aim to protect homeowners who fall into arrears or have difficulty keeping up with their mortgage payments.

We have introduced new rules for mortgage lenders and advisers in the UK. Find out what this will mean for you when getting a new mortgage, changing your loan or remortgaging.
