The biggest story of the week has unsurprisingly been Boris Johnson's plan to release a new 95 per cent mortgage scheme, which he claims could be a lifeline to many first-time buyers.
Lender product updates have again made the most-read list, as it is revealed high loan to value rates have hit a five-year high.
A criminally obtained property empire also captured attention this week, as well as regulator concern over how lenders will treat customers coming to the end of mortgage payment holidays.
