Mortgage Market Review (MMR) workshop webcast

Following our MMR workshops late last year, we have developed a webcast of the material we presented at these events. We have also collated the most frequently asked questions from the workshops - we encourage you to review these.

This webcast will interest you if you are:

  • a firm that advises or arranges regulated mortgage contracts
  • a home finance administrator
  • a body that represents these firms

What does it cover?  

This webcast covers:

  • our main communications about the MMR for mortgage intermediaries to date and the communications to follow
  • an overview of where intermediary firms should be in their preparations at this stage
  • a summary of the responsible lending requirements under MMR as they affect lenders
  • how initial disclosure should take place with examples
  • key points about execution-only
  • what we expect when providing an advised sales process, including the nine factors to consider when assessing appropriateness and an advised sales scenario to apply them to
  • a summary of systems and controls we expect firms to have in place

Why you should listen to this webcast:

  • you can refresh your understanding of the reforms as they affect mortgage intermediaries
  • it’s an opportunity to hear directly from us so that there is consistent understanding across the industry - this is especially crucial if you were unable to attend the workshops
  • it can be used as a training tool for the rest of your staff

About this webcast:

  • the webcast lasts 35 minutes and comprises 24 slides with an audio track
  • there are questions and scenarios for you to consider – these are clearly indicated on the slides with the wording, ‘STOP AND THINK!’ – so you can stop the track to consider and discuss the key points within your firm before listening to what we expect from firms in the relevant area
  • this webcast does not cover all of the MMR requirements, the Policy Statement and the Handbook outline the full package of reforms
  • implementation depends on the nature of the firm itself, which is why we always recommend that firms seek their own legal and compliance advice with regards to our rules
