Halifax decision has ended a long career with no explanation

I received a letter from Lloyds group four weeks ago informing me that I was being taken off its panel, meaning I can no longer trade.

After 15 years of giving trusted advice Halifax is contacting my clients and telling them I have been struck off and that if they still want the mortgage they must deal directly with it.

One of my clients works for the local authority for whom I provided three months’ payslips, three months’ corresponding salary, bank statements and a P60.

Halifax withdrew the offer on the day before completion and now requires an Inland Revenue reference.

It’s shocking that one person in a bank can simply decide to end your career without offering any reasonable explanation.
