Mortgage Lenders and Administrators Statistics - 2013 Q1

The mortgage lenders and administrators (MLAR) statistics are quarterly statistics aggregated from the returns from around 300 regulated mortgage lenders and administrators, providing data on their mortgage lending activities. 
Published on 11 June 2013
  • The overall value of the residential loan amounts outstanding was £1,228 billion in Q1 2013, a decrease of 0.1% compared with Q4. This was the first decrease in the amounts outstanding since Q1 2011 and over the past four quarters there was an increase of 0.5% in the total amounts outstanding.
  • Within the Q1 2013 total, amounts outstanding on regulated loans increased slightly to £957 billion, accounting for 78% of the total. Non-regulated loans, predominantly buy-to let lending, continued to decrease, reducing by a further 0.5% in the quarter to £271 billion.
  • The value of securitised amounts outstanding continued a declining trend which started in 2009, reducing by a further 3.4% in Q1 2013 to £118 billion. Un-securitised amounts outstanding, however, continued to increase to £1,110 billion in Q1 2013. Consequently, the proportion of overall amounts outstanding that securitised balances account decreased for the second quarter in succession, recording a historical low of 9.6%.

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.

Please note:

We are aware of an issue regarding the increase in administered arrears from Q3 2016 and we are investigating, along with the FCA, the cause and possible solutions. We found there was an issue in our firm reporting data for administered arrears where the category of ‘other’ administered loans, which should not have been reported to us, was being included. This inflated the arrears figures published. We have since requested a resubmission of reports and as a result we are expecting to restate the arrears figures in the forthcoming publications.
