British mortgage approvals reach 5-month maximum in June
In June, Britain's housing market managed to surge because mortgage approvals reached a five-month maximum, as the Bank of England informed on Monday.
Apparently, the figures turned out to be in line with expectations. Most probably, they won’t change the debate around the major bank’s policy verdict on Thursday, and it’s believed to provoke another interest rate lift.
In June, UK lenders approved up to 65,619 mortgages in contrast with May’s outcome of 64,684. It’s quite close to the consensus figure of 65,500 in a Reuters survey of market experts.
Moreover, Monday's outcome also disclosed a stronger than anticipated leap in lending to British customers.
The vast majority of market experts surveyed by Reuters are assured that the bank of England is on the verge of lifting rates to another post-financial crisis maximum of 0.75% on Thursday.
The major bank is convinced that inflation pressure is starting to strengthen and that a deceleration in the British economy in the begging of this year was provoked mostly by strikingly cold winter weather.
However, wage surge hasn’t manage to pick up a lot and some market experts are concerned that domestically generated inflation pressure is going down that would make a rate lift worthless and even harmful to households.
The previous week industry body UK Finance informed that in June banks' mortgage approvals for home purchase reached a nine-month maximum, as follows from seasonally updated figures.
Besides this, net mortgage lending ascended by 3.851 billion pounds. As for consumer lending, it managed to soar by 1.567 billion pounds in contrast with an estimate of a leap of 1.3 billion pounds.
Consumer credit surge has been speeding down gradually since it soared by 11% in January 2016.
