The aim of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) proposed by the European Commission is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world. New legislation puts more responsibility on to businesses in relation to the control of personal data and should allow people more control over their own personal data and their right to access and withdraw it. Getting it right is essential and can help strengthen customer confidence and so Parity Trust has been working to ensure our documents are clear and provide information on why we collect data, what we do with it.

Action required on interest only mortgages
A number of news sites and the FCA have published press releases relating to the number of interest only mortgages coming to term where the borrower has no means to repay the capital. An FCA article stated ‘Nearly one in five mortgage customers have an interest-only mortgage and the FCA is concerned that shortfalls in repayment plans could lead to people losing their homes.’ Parity Trust developed our Mortgage Extension for mortgage holders who find themselves in this situation and where their lender is unable to support a more flexible approach to resolution.
