Adviser View

Daniel Bailey, mortgage broker at Derbyshire-based Middleton Finance, said: “This is the big drive towards the end of year to hit lending targets.

“It is good to see the competition hotting up, others will follow suit to try and do more lending and capture consumers attention as a lot of people are sitting on standard variable rates and are not encouraged to switch.”
