The long Easter weekend certainly didn’t slow the pace down within the mortgage world – and of course alongside this there was the surprise announcement of a snap General Election to shake things up further.
Atom Bank’s massive rate cuts are still featuring heavily in the industry headlines as the lender pulled its lowest ever five-year fix. And the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) unveiled its proposed fees for 2017/18.
The second charge sector is proving a serious talking point at present, while retention proc fees and new lenders and product launches also grabbed attention.
