The 10 biggest mortgage broker stories of the week – 13/07/2018
This week proc fee changes by two lenders hit the headlines, with Santander cutting its minimum, while Metro Bank raised its fee for product transfers.

 

The advertising regulator also had to get tough on an estate agent and there was potential relief for borrowers affected by Japanese knotweed as research revealed it may not be as severe as feared.

There was also a sensible move by the government to not penalise people who take out protection insurance and the industry reflects on what can be learned from Gareth Southgate’s success.
