Which? response as FCA announces proposals to extend support for mortgage customers amid coronavirus

Gareth Shaw, Head of Money at Which?, said:

“The extension of these measures will bring relief to people who would otherwise struggle financially during the challenging months ahead.

“Mortgage lenders should make the process as straightforward as possible, ensuring people can easily access the support they need.

“Consumers should also consider their options carefully as a mortgage payment holiday will likely lead to increased payments in the future – so it is likely to be in their interest to continue making payments as normal if that is feasible.”
