The Mortgage Code Com pliance Board is embarking on an education offensive through a series of countrywide roadshows aimed at mortgage advisers.
The roadshows begin this month and continue into Feb ruary. They will focus on updating advisers on the imp act of recent changes to regulation as well as on the future of the mortgage code.
Among other areas covered will be the training and competence requirements which stipulate firms must ensure their mortgage advisers hold CeMap or MAQ qualifications by the end of next year.
The roadshows will also cover compliance and how advisers should prepare for monitoring visits, taking a consultative approach which the MCCB hopes will improve relations and reduce any fear factor.
The roadshows start on January 29 in Huddersfield and will take in Cambridge, Kemp ton Park, Bristol, Bir mingham and Edinburgh before finishing on February 27 in Belfast.
