The 10 biggest mortgage broker stories this week – 18/05/18
Ex-FCA mortgage director Lynda Blackwell dominated the headlines again this week, as the ripples from her experience of being turned down by for a mortgage continued onwards.

Conveyancers also came under fire this week, while Mortgage Solutions took a closer look at the Financial Conduct Authority’s study of the mortgage market, particularly its questioning on mortgage club fees.

Finally the winners from the British Specialist Lending Awards were also among the most read articles this week.
