MMR Readiness Tracking Survey 2

On the 5th December the FCA issued its second MMR Implementation Readiness Survey request via email, and followed it with a chaser on 16th December. The last survey prompted a 68% response rate with two thirds of mortgage brokers that responded being on track.

At recent MMR workshops the FCA were clear that they were hoping to increase the response rate this time to what is a straight forward readiness questionnaire.

The survey will be tailored to your individual firm. You will be asked if you are an intermediary, if you have a plan (see here), whether you will implement on time and whether you need any further communications from the FCA.

Our View

The changes outlined in the MMR are regulatory requirements that all mortgage advisory firms must comply with. It is important that you understand the changes, what will be required of your firm and plan accordingly to ensure you are ready for 26th April 2014.

Action Required By You

  • We would recommend that all firms with mortgage permissions complete the questionnaire;
  • We would also recommend that you have a copy of the last questionnaire completed to hand to ensure that your answers are consistent and planning has not reversed;
  • For ATEB clients please discuss progress with your consultant in Q1 2014 when we will have MMR compliant documents available.
