Top 10 most read stories on Mortgage Solutions this week – 26/05/17
The first edition of the British Specialist Lending Awards proved a glamorous night this week and drew readers’ attention as the best of the industry were recognised.

As ever, who was seen doing what, with whom on the night was almost as interesting as unveiling the winners themselves.

Elsewhere, the theft of more than £90,000 resulted in a two-year jail term for an unscrupulous estate agent while the continued debate around the digitisation of the mortgage market continues to draw attention – from new businesses and high street giants alike.

And the buy to let portfolio market got slightly clearer this week as Coventry Building Society confirmed it would remain a portfolio lender once new rules kick in.
