Buy-to-let data collection

The Bank of England is introducing a loan-level data collection covering buy-to-let lending. Following consultation, the collection will be implemented in three phases:

  • Phase 1 - delivered in October 2017 for Q3 2017 data: core retail attributes required for the most pressing policy purposes, together with some existing attributes within the FCA’s Product Sales Data. Guidance documents are published on the Bank's website. This includes definitions, the XML schema, technical documentation and a data model. There are four attributes that are optional for phase 1. These are loan regulation, type of dwelling, and date of birth (and an accompanying borrower reference). They are included because they are currently included in existing reporting to the CML and will be optional until phase 2 reporting starts.
  • Phase 2 - delivered in April 2018 for Q1 2018 data: the remaining retail attributes. Details of the data collection relating to phase 2 are intended to be published alongside the PRA’s Policy Statement on underwriting standards.
  • Phase 3 - delivered in October 2018 for Q3 2018 data: data attributes required for buy-to-let lending in the corporate book. Details of the data collection relating to phase 3 will be published after further consultation.

This collection should be completed only by those institutions specifically asked to do so by the Bank of England. Institutions are eligible to report where the banking group carries out gross flows of new buy-to-let lending in excess of £20m and 60 loans annually. Although this threshold is applied at the group level, individual entities that form part of a group are expected to report, except where an entity lends less than £20m and 60 loans per year and contributes less than 2% of the number of new loans within a group.
