The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has issued a consultation paper, proposing to update the equity release rules in Mortgage:Conduct of Business Rules (MCOB), to facilitate the availability of lifetime mortgages where the consumer can choose to switch to interest roll-up.
There will also be consequential changes to SUP for the reporting of Product Sales Data.
Whilst we broadly support the FCA proposals to allow lifetime mortgage consumers to choose to switch to interest roll-up, we should stress that the borrower must be made fully aware of the risks involved if they choose to do so.
In the document below we provide our response to the questions posed by the FCA in the consultation:
- 'Do you agree with our proposed approach to lifetime mortgages that allow the consumer to choose to switch to interest roll-up?'
- 'Do you agree with our proposal for how firms should determine the length of term when illustrating equity release products?'
