The UK’s top ten mortgage lenders lent a staggering £211.3 billion in 2018, with the top seven retaining the ranking they held in 2017. Whilst the TSB lost its spot at number 10 to the Clydesdale Bank in this money chart, it’s interesting to know that if the Bank of Mum and Dad had been included it would have nudged both of these well-known brands aside, lending £6.3 billion to loved ones in 2018, according to Legal and General.

The UK’s biggest mortgage broker, London & Country, announced the lowest 2 year rate on the market yesterday, 1.24% on a 2 year fixed rate deal at 60% LTV.
