Here you will find responses that we have submitted to consultations by government departments and other organisations that are relevant to mortgage lenders and their customers.
Members and associates can also keep up to date with our work in progress on formulating responses to consultations that haven't yet reached their closing date. Please note some content is restricted for members and associates only.
Got an opinion? Let us know. We love to hear from members on "active" responses, so we can reflect views from the whole lending industry.
