Comment on the Bank of England's figures, November 2015

Mon 30 Nov 2015

Peter Rollings, CEO of Marsh & Parsons, comments: Lending has rebounded after Septembers downward blip, and mortgage approvals have leaped an impressive 17% year-on-year. All the vitals are looking strong, and remortgaging and locking into long-term deals will still very much be the name of the game for many existing homeowners awaiting potential interest rate movement in 2016.

"These figures only look at October and George Osbornes package of housing announcements in the Autumn Statement last week will have keyed up a new wave of first-time buyers eager to get their foot in the door. We may also see a winter flurry of buy-to-let borrowing before Aprils stamp duty shake up, as landlords seek to invest before the additional charge is levied on second homes. The big question as we enter the New Year is whether the supply of homes will match the increasing demand thats clearly evident in the mortgage market."
