MEX probe into self-cert allegations continues

Mortgage Express is continuing its investigation into allegations that one of its sales team advised brokers how to fill in self-cert mortgage applications fraudulently.

A source tells Mortgage Strategy that one broker voiced concerns to senior management at MEX after he was advised by one of its BDMs on how to exploit loopholes in a self-cert application. MEX says it is taking the matter seriously and if necessary will take disciplinary action.

A spokesman says: ” We are investigating allegations about comments made by a member of our sales team and if necessary will take disciplinary action. We are taking this matter seriously and hope to resolve it soon.”
