Paula John, editor in chief of Your Mortgage, said: “I would like to congratulate all of this year’s winners on their success in attaining these prestigious prizes. The Your Mortgage Awards have been running for 27 years.

“In the recent past the UK mortgage market has grown ever more competitive and more closely regulated, while at the same time customers are becoming more discerning, meaning lenders have to work harder than ever to win business. All of this is great news for the UK’s mortgage borrowers. But it also means that it is now more difficult than ever for lenders to stay ahead of the game and be judged a winner.

“Well done and keep up the hard work.”
