The following Financial Services practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The regulation of home finance transactions came about at different points in time. HM Treasury announced its intention to regulate mortgage lenders in 2000 and revised its proposals in December 2001 to include mortgage intermediaries.
