This week’s most read on Mortgage Solutions and Specialist Lending Solutions saw the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requiring advisers to explain why they have not chosen a cheaper mortgage in pole position, following its advice consultation paper released earlier this week.
This was followed by Nationwide offering an execution-only mortgage switch comparison service in partnership with Moneysupermarket, as well as research released by Royal London showing that the age of a first-time buyer has risen while deposits have fallen.
The mortgage prisoner bill presented to Parliament broke also into the top five stories.
The exclusive announcement of the British Mortgage Awards 2019 finalists was also well read, as you might expect, in a big-hitting week of stories.
