Who regulates mortgage brokers?

Mortgage brokers in the UK are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA regulates financial services firms and ensures that they comply with relevant legislation. It also provides guidance to consumers, so they can make an informed decision when looking for a mortgage.

The rules and regulations set out by the FCA state that all mortgage brokers must be registered with them and approved to carry out certain types of business. This ensures that homeowners get quality advice, clear communication and accurate paperwork.

It is important to use a regulated broker when searching for the best mortgage product as this will ensure that you receive the highest quality of advice and guidance. The FCA does not guarantee any advice given by a regulated mortgage broker but it does provide protection for consumers and helps to protect their financial interests.

By using a regulated mortgage broker, you can be sure that you are dealing with an experienced and trustworthy professional.

The FCA also holds mortgage brokers to a Code of Practice which they must adhere to. This includes maintaining professional standards, treating customers fairly, exercising due care and diligence when giving advice, and providing clear information about their services and fees.

It is therefore important to check that your broker is regulated by the FCA before entering into any agreement with them. You can easily do this by using the FCA register or by asking them for proof of their registration status.
