Default Gross Mortgage Lending Stronger Than A Year

The Council of Mortgage Lenders estimates that total gross mortgage lending in July increased to £16.6 billion, representing a rise of 12% from £14.8 billion in June and 29% higher than the total of £12.9 billion in July last year. This is the highest monthly estimate for gross lending since October 2008 (£18.6 billion).

Commenting on market conditions in this month's Market Commentary, CML market and data analyst Caroline Purdey observes:

"An improvement in sentiment and activity continues to show in the UK housing and mortgage markets, with a more positive picture also starting to emerge in the economy.

"Our forward estimate of gross mortgage lending in July reinforces a growing evidence base of a strengthening in the housing and mortgage markets."
