UK mortgage approvals are on the rise


What they do not appear to mention until paragraph 12 of the article is that the Bank of England said that approvals numbered 52,743 in October. The mean bank loans (ie. Mortgage applications) over the average seen up to the financial crisis is around 90,000. So really it is only just over half of the mortgage applications. The Bank of England said that storm clouds were gathering in the economy so the downside risks clearly persist. If the European countries do go into recession again then up to 3million workers in the UK depend upon export led orders from the Euro zone.

But this time mortgage rates will increase: everybody on their lenders Standard Variable Rate (SVR for short) will cost them more money. You see that the rate for lending banks to banks has gone up by 25 basis points or 0.25% in the last 3 months as the banks are finding their interest rates are going up. A few days ago my Bank of Scotland mortgages have gone up – I am paying more money this month to the bank even through the BofE rates have stayed put.
