Mis-selling of Financial Products: Mortgage Credit

13-06-2018

This paper forms part of a series of five studies on mis-selling of financial products in the EU. The mis-selling of mortgage loans that include floor clauses, foreign currencies (forex) clauses and related products is the subject of this research. We analyse the context, the handling of the problem in the most affected Member States (Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Spain) and its compatibility with EU law. We conclude with recommendations. This document was provided by Policy Department A at the request of the ECON Committee.
