Mortgage Mis-selling Claims
As a result of the property boom in the UK and incentives available to those facilitating and selling mortgage products, it led many in the industry to take increased risk in lending mortgages. Some lenders were approving mortgages to those at ten times the level of their salary, and up to 125% of the value of a property.
As many mortgage advisors and providers were driven by the high commissions that were made through the facilitation of a mortgage, this led to the mis-selling of mortgages to many.
