Mortgages and coronavirus: FCA’s Tailored Support Guidance for firms

calendar10 March 2021

CAP has responded to a consultation from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) asking for comments on new guidance for mortgage firms. From 1 April firms will no longer be expected not to enforce mortgage repossessions.

As such, CAP has recommended that it would be more appropriate to delay the recommencement of repossessions until public health restrictions have been lifted.
