Second charge mortgage market down 2% in September

9 November 2017

Commenting on the September 2017 new business figures for the second charge mortgage market, Fiona Hoyle, Head of Consumer and Mortgage Finance at the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), said:

“The fall in new business volumes in September comes amid subdued consumer confidence which has affected the housing market as a whole. It follows six consecutive months of growth in second charge mortgage new business volumes which grew by 11% in the first nine months of 2017 to 16,043.

“Lenders are continuing to embed the new regulatory regime which puts first and second charge mortgage regulation on the same footing.”
