In 2021, we saw a continuous, rapid change in our lives and works. We all felt the aftermath of Brexit and the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, and no one escaped.
There was considerable demand for mortgages due to people moving to more rural locations to avoid COVID-19.
We financed home improvements as we spent more time living and working there; lending uptake was fuelled by the stamp duty holiday, making 2021 a bumper year for the mortgage industry.
The scene is now set for 2022, and what I believe will be another profitable 12 months for brokers and the lenders who serve them.
