Top 10 most read stories on Mortgage Solutions this week – 22/09/2017
Estate agents have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent weeks, and this week was no different as the scandal of a secret cartel inflating commissions was revealed.

And online-based estate agent Purplebricks also made the headlines by threatening legal action about “fake, not negative” online reviews.

The question of mortgage broker fees also attracted attention, with a debate about just how brokers should be remunerated. Down-valuations and the conveyancing industry are also topics of concern at present for the broking community.
