Mortgage and Protection News (Spring 2014)

Available now on our website is the Spring edition of our newsletter “Mortgage and Protection News”.  In this issue we have an update on the UK housing market, with the Council of Mortgage Lenders forecasting mortgage lending of £195 bn this year which is around 15% higher than the estimated figure for 2013.

There is also an update on the “Help to Buy” scheme, that sets out the differences between the “Mortgage Guarantee” and “Equity Loan” schemes.  We also look at what effect “Help to Buy” may have on the buy to let market.

On the protection front, we consider the importance and benefits of placing life policies in trust.

I hope you find this issue of interest, please feel to contact me if you would like to discuss any of the topics raised.
