    From one of the largest lenders in the UK this is extremely cutting to those who feed it a large share of its business and growth. This has the potential to damage broker lender relationships for £250 a case. Some clients will cross reference information and if they can get the same deal elsewhere but an extra £250 cashback, not pay a broker fee or have to compile the overly onerous paperwork required by brokers but not lenders to have for each case id take the brokers knowledge and run to the nearest branch direct. Deplorable actions from Halifax on this and sadly it wont bother them in the slightest.
