Bank of England sees fall in property related lending

The actual gross lending secured on dwellings was £11.6 billion – as opposed to £11.5 billion reported in the previous 6 months average. Repayments were £11.3 billion.

The number of loan approvals for house purchase increased to 54,036 and was higher than the previous six-month average of 49,206. The number of approvals for remortgaging on the other hand decreased to 28,632, yet was still above the previous 6 month average of 27,240.
