The so-called ‘fee’ that lenders pay barely covers your time in basic processing – that’s not in any way, shape or form a professional fee.
If clients don’t wish to pay your fee they have the ability to shop around and take their chances that a broker not charging a fee can afford to deliver/intends to deliver the same service. As long as the client knows what the fee will be before they make any commitment, there is not a problem.

Now the Chancellor’s government members probably have never had this sort of problem – after all a lot of them have massive inherited wealth, and probably have no clue about ordinary working people. He seeks to make life harder for everyone. He is making error after error by trying to find ways of making ordinary people miserable to raise taxes by stealth.
