Mortgage lending falls again

 

 

The number of mortgages advanced to people buying a property dropped for the fifth consecutive month during December as activity in the housing market remained subdued.

 

Just 39,900 loans were advanced for house purchase during the month, 4% fewer than in November and the lowest level since February last year, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

 

The figure was also 37% lower than it was in December 2009, when lending levels were boosted by people rushing through purchases to beat the end of the Government's stamp duty holiday
