Housing Equity Withdrawal (HEW) - 2017 Q2

05 October 2017

Following the publication of the latest ONS Blue Book data, changes in methodology have revised components of Housing Equity Withdrawal. These changes have resulted in upward revisions from 1997 to 2017.

The Bank of England’s measure of housing equity withdrawal (HEW) is calculated as the balance of effects on the stock of housing equity from:

  1. Changes in the stock of secured lending when households take out or repay debt.
  2. Changes in the stock of housing wealth, e.g. when new properties are built or improvements are made to existing properties.
The stock of housing equity can also change as a result of revaluations of the stock of housing wealth due to changes in house prices, but this is not included in these data.
