What did you miss? The top 10 stories on Mortgage Solutions this week
A substantial property fraud conviction and significant lender moves proved the most interesting to our readers this week.

The international £1.2m scam involved a model and her mum – and prompted Beth Rudolph from the Conveyancing Association to outline how you can avoid your clients becoming a victim.

A new lender in the market always proves popular and so it was with Mortgage Solutions exclusive coverage of Secure Trust Bank’s entry.

Buy to let has proved a hot topic of late and with the Buy to Let Market Forum continuing next week in Cardiff and Reading, (following the first two events this week in Bolton and Birmingham) it has remained near the top of the agenda.

Retention fees are also a key source of concern for brokers. Principality Building Society unveiled its plans earlier this week, but intermediaries remain unhappy with the current state of affairs.
