But partly in thanks tohis strong background in finance the firm came through that event and has been growing strongly ever since. Straight away we dive into property's hot topic- the OCR increases and what it means for your mortgages. The answer will probably surprise (and relieve) a lot of listeners. For new investors we thentalk a bit about what a mortgage broker can offer them and why banks have different lending ratios on different types of properties.John knows his stuff and this is a great interview. Part two will be published next Saturday so stay tuned for that. Enjoy the show.John can be found at Squirrel Mortgages.
