Mortgage Lenders and Administrators Statistics - 2016 Q4

14 March 2017

The Mortgage Lenders and Administrators Return (MLAR) is a quarterly statistical release aggregated from data on mortgage lending activities provided by around 340 regulated mortgage lenders and administrators.

Long run versions of the summary and detailed tables are now available in Excel format, for data going back to Q1 2007. These have been sourced from data published by the FSA on their archive pages prior to Q1 2013 and data published by the Bank of England from Q1 2013. Future publications of these long run tables will only capture revisions made to the latest six quarters of data.

  • £62.8 billion of new residential loans was advanced to individuals during October-December 2016. This was a 2.6% decrease compared to the previous quarter and a decrease of 0.4% over the past four quarters
  • At 22.0%, the share of First Time Buyers in new mortgage advances reached its highest level since the time series began in 2007. This coincides with the increase in high LTV lending, although this is significantly lower than the pre-crisis level.
  • The proportion of total loan balances in arrears has decreased to 1.3% at the end of Q4 2016, the lowest level since the series began. The outstanding balance in arrears is now £17.2 billion.
