Consumer Duty Considerations


When advising on self build finance and to comply with the Duty, you must consider the nature of the customer’s project, construction route, build costs and payment schedule in addition to the widely understood considerations around loan size, interest rate and costs, to ensure that the recommended product will provide the right funding pattern for the customer’s build.
