The 10 biggest mortgage broker stories this week – 29/03/18
A platform partnership between Halifax and Smatr365 was the biggest story on Mortgage Solutions this week, as the much anticipated Application Programming Interface (API) availability finally starts to make a mark on the industry.

An attempt by Mortgage Trust to claim damages in a mortgage fraud case also grabbed the headlines, along with an upcoming technology pitch night from Dynamo.

The British Specialist Lending Awards finalists also generated a lot of interest from readers this week.
