Top 10 biggest mortgage broker stories this week – 16/03/18
Fraud stories took our readers by storm this week, with the case involving an ex-rugby star and his brother being found guilty of £100,000 mortgage fraud garnering the most attention.


Follow on from that was a piece on several mortgage brokers jailed as a part of group perpetrating a £9m scam.

And a High Court ruling on a network’s responsibility for their authorised representatives’ fraudulent behaviour also drew attention.
