The 10 biggest mortgage broker stories this week – 06/04/18
Interest-only mortgages have been one of the hottest topics this week, with predictions of both an increase in mis-selling cases, as well as more landlords falling into arrears.  


The appointment of Ben Thompson as CEO at the Mortgage Advice Bureau has also dominated the headlines.

It has also been a significant week for technology as Amazon Alexa users can now search for a mortgage through a new Mortgage Brain app, while Countrywide launched digital broker Dynamo.
