The number of mortgages approved for house purchase picked up slightly in January from December but remained more than 43% lower than a year ago, the British Bankers’ Association said on Tuesday.
The BBA said mortgage approvals totaled 23,376 last month. That compared with 22,416 in December and a record low of 17,574 in November.
Total mortgage lending was £2.9 billion in January, down from 3.3 billion in December.
The report highlights the continued downward pressure on British house prices which have fallen around 17% in a year as the credit crunch has made it harder and more expensive to get finance. (Reuters)
