As the summer season finally seems to be lurching toward its end, we've had a mixed week at Mortgage Solutions.


Leeds Building Society launched a 10-year fix, which topped our most read this week, followed by the government’s changes to the Help to Buy and shared home ownership schemes, allowing borrowers to take out schemes for longer than 25-years.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn also called for a levy on second homes in the capital given the ‘offensive’ number of empty investment homes and the housing shortages, which drew plenty of attention.

Review the week’s biggest-hitting stories with us.
