Mortgage Lenders and Administrators Statistics - 2013 Q4

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 March 2014
  • The overall value of the residential loan amounts outstanding in Q4 2013 was £1,238 billion, an increase of 0.4% compared to Q3 and an increase of 0.8% over the past four quarters.
  • Amounts outstanding on regulated loans were £976 billion and constituted 79% of total in Q4 2013, almost unchanged from Q3 2013. Non-regulated loans continued to decrease in the quarter by 1.9% to £262 billion.
  • The value of securitised amounts outstanding continued to decline – by a further 4.2% in Q4 2013 to £106 billion. Unsecuritised amounts outstanding, however, continued to increase to £1,132 billion in Q4 2013. Thus, the proportion of total amounts outstanding of securitised balances decreased for the fifth quarter in a row to 8.6%, the lowest level since the series began in 2007.

MLAR Survey

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.
