ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the value of expanding the educational qualifications of mortgage brokers in Great Britain. Only two areas where exams beyond the basic level are required. These are regulated lifetime mortgage contracts and home reversion plans. If the industry is passionate about raising standards, this list needs to be expanded. Improvement in educational standards will increase the profession's quality status.
