This week’s top 10 stories on Mortgage Solutions – 28/04/17
One of the more extreme versions of mortgage broker fraud drew many readers’ attention this week.

The scam was eventually discovered by the victim – the broker’s mother. And it was all to impress a girl.

The ongoing lender rate war was among other key industry stories. Yorkshire Building Society grabbed headlines by releasing the lowest ever mortgage rate, while one of the big five also made cuts. But brokers remain unconvinced that this can last for too long.

Lender technology appears to be a regular frustration for many brokers. And while it may not be spoken out loud, how to eventually exit the industry is also a key concern.
