Half of UK homeowners are not confident that they could obtain a mortgage today, according to a study by Masthaven entitled ‘Game of Loans’.

The study comprised of two surveys of over 2,000 adults and also found that most people (81%) believe lenders should make more of an effort to understand homebuyers’ individual circumstances.
