This week we’re very lucky to be joined by mortgage broker Dave Cookson to talk us through all the changes going on in the mortgage market at the moment. And there are a lot of them!

We talk about:

  • How lenders are applying the recent "portfolio landlord" requirements
  • How the increased regulation around affordability has affected the market
  • What’s happening with Limited Company mortgages right now
  • The products that have caught Dave’s eye recently
  • What he thinks will happen in the year ahead

It’s been one heck of a year for the mortgage market, so now is the perfect time to take stock. This is a must-listen as you start planning your strategy for next year!
