The FSA expects a firm to treat a mortgage shortfall debt in the same way that it treats a payment shortfall.

MCOB 13.1.6GRP

A firm may have entered into a mix of regulated mortgage contracts and non-regulated mortgage contracts with a customer secured on the same property. In such circumstances, if the regulated mortgage contract is in arrears, notwithstanding that the overall position in respect of the mortgages generally is not in arrears, the firm will need to comply with all the requirements of MCOB 13 in respect to the regulated mortgage contract. Where this involves providing the customer with information, a firm should explain, if it is the case, that whilst the overall position on the mortgages is not in arrears, no action will be taken in respect of the regulated mortgage contract.

MCOB 13.1.7GRP

If a firm has entered into more than one regulated mortgage contract with the same customer secured onthe same property, the firm may treat all of the regulated mortgage contracts as one for the purposes of MCOB 13.
