This week’s most read on Mortgage Solutions and Specialist Lending Solutions included the poll result showing that over half of brokers expect the buy-to-let sector to contract in 2019.
The fraud stories were plentiful this week, including the news that a gambling was addict sentenced to a six-month community order after admitting £10k mortgage fraud also raised eyebrows.
This was followed by broker research suggesting that more than 4m mortgage borrowers underestimate the duration of their mortgages and Moneyfacts’ latest data showing that motivation to remortgage has hit an 11-year high.
