The Inside Edge
The Council of Mortgage Lenders today issued a press release stating that Mortgage lending was subdued in July 08.
Although lending was up 5% compared with June, it was down 27% compared to July a year ago, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
Bob Pannell, CML head of research, said:
“While there was a small month-on-month increase in activity, it represented a notable decline from a year ago. This continues the weaker picture seen in June and points towards the more subdued levels of lending we are likely to see in the second half of 2008.”
