What is happening in the mortgage market?

The mortgage market has been going haywire recently due to higher than anticipated inflation and mortgage lenders have been pulling deals across the market.

This week reporter Jane Matthews is joined by John Charcol’s mortgage technical manager, Nicholas Mendes, Quilter’s mortgage expert Karen Noye and London-base brokerage Private Finance’s technical director, Chris Sykes to discuss what has been going on. Over the last two weeks, more than 1,000 mortgage products have been pulled from the market causing mortgage brokers to demand mandatory notice periods of rate withdrawals in order to help them better manage client applications. The guests weigh in on the merits of such a policy but warn that it may lead to unintended consequences. They also discuss why house prices have not crashed this year like some analysts previously predicted.
