Nicola Firth, CEO at Knowledge Bank (pictured above), said: “…There was more change in the bridging sector with searches for regulated bridging losing the top spot it had held for the past two months to searches for the minimum loan amount.
“Additionally, in the commercial sector, we saw searches for mixed-use properties, ie part commercial, enter the top five searches for the first time.
“Within the BTL sector brokers have been looking for lenders who would consider first-time landlords, making this the most popular search performed during the entire month, the first time this has happened since July.”
