Each week Mortgage Solutions and its sister title Specialist Lending Solutions looks back at the week's most thoughtful, thought provoking and controversial comments to single out the Star Letter.
This week our Star Letter goes to Mart Crox for his comment under the story: Young Brits feel shut out of homeownership.
He said: “I just did a first-time buyer case for a couple of 22 and 20-year-olds on £13,852 & £6,746. Both had a car for work but had managed to save the 10% deposit from their incomes over the last few years because they didn’t spend, spend, spend.
“I didn’t charge a fee due to being so impressed with their attitude but this couple were a breath of fresh air from the usual unpaid debts and defaults for several phone contracts etc. that I have to work around.”
