From 1st July the Council of Mortgage Lenders is integrated into a new trade association, UK Finance. For the time being, all UKF mortgage information will continue to be published on this website, and UKF member-only mortgage information will only be available here.

UK Finance represents around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payment-related services. The new organisation takes on most of the activities previously carried out by the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Financial Fraud Action UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association.

Interest only toolkit

Published: 14 May 2014

The CML has developed an Interest-Only Toolkit which is intended to help and inform lenders to develop policies and actions related to existing interest-only mortgages. The toolkit is not prescriptive – rather it sets out a framework which we believe will allow members to develop a strategy which is appropriate to their business model and, crucially, helps them to meet the needs of their current interest-only customers.
