    Instead of reducing rates and paying £250 cashback to existing customers switching rates they should start to support their brokers by paying retention proc fees.

    With the announcement from the Coventry today that they will be paying retention proc fees this brings the total number of lenders that will be paying this year or that are already paying to eight. They include Barclays, BM Solutions, Halifax, Platform, Virgin Money, Santander and now Coventry. I also understand that TSB are also looking to pay proc fees for retention products later this year but have yet to confirm this.

    The dam is now starting to break!
