This week’s top 10 stories on Mortgage Solutions – 12/05/2017
Great changes are sweeping through the buy-to-let market with a whole host of regulations needing to be implemented by lenders in the autumn. As ever, all brokers want is clarity on how lenders will be doing this.

Recognising the great and the good from the industry is always a fun event and the finalists for the British Mortgage Awards drew lots of attention this week.

One person certainly not qualifying for an award is the husband from Cumbria who forged his disabled wife’s signature to remortgage their house without her knowing.

Interest was also high in how digital mortgage processes might look and how brokers should be advising clients with maturing interest-only policies.
