This week on Mortgage Solutions and Specialist Lending Solutions it was buy-to-let and the landlord sector grabbing much of the attention.
Changes to TSB’s buy-to-let products drew lots of interest, as did the proposed changes to landlords’ private residence relief.
The launch of an aggregator platform for affordability calculators was also well read, while an analysis of the rise in county court judgments found lenders will need to be more flexible.
Pad Bamford warned that high loan-to-value lending may be set to plateau while the sale of more former-Northern Rock loans and an interview with the FCA on its Mortgages Market Study rounded-out the top 10.
