Brilliant Solutions

Product Blast w/e 15 Jan

Update Overview

This week our overview sees the changes made by lenders since 18th December 2020.

We have seen a number of lenders bring their higher LTV products back to market over the last couple of weeks.  The new year has brought product refreshes and repricing for many.  Brexit has lead to some lenders to announce criteria changes.  With the concern of meeting the stamp duty deadline we continue to see some product withdrawals and acceptance of new applications.
