Top 10 most read stories on Mortgage Solutions this week – 04/08/2017
Estate agents dominated the coverage on Mortgage Solutions this week as one study suggested the end may be near for many traditional high street agents, while one of the new breed of online agents was hauled over the fire.

The Stamp Duty charge on second homes caused HM Revenue and Customs some problems too while the possibility of future interest rate rises was also a hot topic.
