star this property answer text <p>The Treasury recognises that mortgage prisoners can be in a difficult and sometimes stressful situation. However, the servicer of these mortgages must be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This means that customers are protected by the FCA’s principle of Treating Customers Fairly; their Mortgage Conduct of Business rules; and customers have recourse to the Financial Ombudsman Service.</p><p> </p><p>The Treasury has also worked closely with the FCA to consider how to remove the regulatory barriers that might prevent some customers from accessing better deals.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA are now consulting on changes that will move the required affordability assessment from an absolute test to a relative one. This will enable lenders to more easily accept switching consumers, providing they are up-to-date with repayments and are not borrowing more.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA consultation closes on 26 June 2019.</p> more like this

However, despite the claims made by promoters, these schemes never worked and the amounts paid were always taxable under the law at the time.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has decided that the charge on DR loans is the right way to ensure that everybody pays the taxes they owe and contributes towards the public-funded services from which they benefit.</p><p> </p><p>Restricting the charge only to DR loans entered into after Finance Act 2017 received Royal Assent would not be fair to ordinary taxpayers, who have always paid the right amount of tax and have not engaged in tax avoidance schemes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The time taken to resolve an appeal can be affected by a number of factors, such as the complexity of the case or whether the case proceeds to be listed for hearing by the independent Valuation Tribunal. Some cases can be held up in litigation or placed on hold at the ratepayer's request. The average (median) time taken to resolve challenges for non-domestic properties in each of the last five years is shown in the attached table. This table covers the 2010 Local Rating Lists.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Median (days)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>135<sup>*</sup></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>335</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>413</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>390</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>395</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>*The 2010 list began on 1 April 2010 so only those challenges received in 2010-11 were resolved in 2010-11. In subsequent years, however, challenges received in previous years can also be resolved so the median clearance time may include more complex challenges which took longer to resolve.</p>
