Top 10 most read articles on Mortgage Solutions this week – 24/11/17
Budget announcements were the talk of town this week, with chancellor Philip Hammond slashing stamp duty for first-time buyers and announcing a raft of housing measures. But it was the more difficult industry stories that really stirred readers’ interest.

Sainsbury’s bank attracted attention for shutting down its broker exclusive mortgage range just three weeks after launch.

Inter-generational justice was also a hot topic, with MPs being told that Britain’s biggest lenders are ignoring older borrowers because they can’t be bothered.

And the banning of payday loan directors for reckless negligence also featured in our top ten.
