November 1 means mortgage regulation is finally here.
The FSA takes over responsibility for regulating mortgage lending, administration, advice and arranging.
From November 1, customers will be able to check whether a broker is authorised or an appointed representative by looking at the FSA website.
If you have any interesting experiences in the first week of the mortgage regulated environment, or would like to express your views on regulation, please let us have your comments. Send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org
