A firm need not comply with MCOB 2.9.1R(1) to (3) in relation to an automatic renewal of an agreement for an optional additional product which was entered into on or before 31 March 2016 provided:

From 1 April 2016

on the occasion of the first automatic renewal on or after 1 April 2016, the firm takes reasonable steps to ensure that the customer is informed:


that the renewal of the agreement is optional;


that the customer may elect not to renew the agreement; and


of the effect of the non-renewal of the agreement, if any, on the home finance transaction; and


the procedure to be used by customers for electing not to renew the agreement pays due regard to the interests of customers and treats them fairly.
