The 10 biggest mortgage broker stories this week – 09/11/18
A court case involving Santander and a woman who was defrauded by her son topped the list of this week's biggest stories.


A speech from a top executive at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) also commanded interest after it addressed concerns over equity release, as well as mortgage prisoners.

And there were a number of big stories to come out of Mortgage Solutions‘ The Mortgage and Protection Event (TMPE), which is still open for registrations in London and Southampton.
