Welcome to the CML's policy hub. One of our core activities on behalf of our members is to develop positions and responses that set out lenders' views to government and regulators. We explain how new proposals could affect lenders and their customers, and try to solve any potential problems. What we strive for is a mortgage market that works well for both lenders and their customers.

Here you will find information about our policy responses, guidance, and policy updates as well as our key priorities for 2015.
