FCA has updated its FAQs relating to the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD). It has added new questions concerning a range of matters under the MCD, including:

  • second charge, intermediary service and foreign currency disclosure requirements;
  • when a European Standardised Information Sheet is not required;
  • when a firm is able to describe its services as “unlimited” or “independent”; and
  • MCD implications for foreign currency lending, managing exchange rate risk.
