United Kingdom

Mortgage lending by the BBA

The number of home loans in the United Kingdom, issued by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA), probably increased to 36 000 in January from 35 667 in December. The latter has been the lowest number since April 2013, when 33 000 loans were issued. The BBA features the major banks in the country, which account for almost 60% of overall mortgage lending. The number of mortgage loans is considered as a leading indicator in regard to UK housing market conditions. As growth in mortgage lending signifies a healthy housing sector, which also contributes to overall economic activity, in case the number of loans rose more than projected, this would boost demand for the sterling. The BBA is to publish the official figure at 9:30 GMT.
