    Skipton Mortgage Product Switches 12th Oct 17 at 1:27 PM
    I noticed the other day that they now offer online non advised product switches if "we think you are eligible" whereas before you had to go through a telephone interview. How they decided who is "eligible" or not I have no idea.
    I switched a few months ago so I won't need to worry about any of this for some time.

    Starting this year you will be able to get a proper service from a mortgage broker.

    We don't charge for product transfers, so I'd assume many other brokers don't either.

    Those they do will swiftly discover that the market won't stand it in my view KS.
