This week’s top 10 stories on Mortgage Solutions – 05/05/2017
In the week of the Mortgage Advice Bureau annual conference, it was an exclusive story about the advice firm capturing two senior personalities from rival Intrinsic that stole much industry attention.

On the lender side, HSBC, Atom Bank and Lloyds Bank all made waves with a range of ongoings including another step in the red-hot rate war and a challenge issued for brokers to step-up in the product transfer market.

The buy to let sector also attracted some attention with the expectation that the market will improve in the coming 12 months but that more must be done for mortgage prisoners.
