According to the British Bankers Association’s (BBA) latest figures, total net mortgage lending to individuals increased in March by £4.08bn. This is a new peak, with January’s £4.04bn being the previous high. Lending to property companies increased by £968m in March. Borrowing in this sector has gone up by 30% in the last year, reflecting the strength of property development and the buying and selling of real estate.

Ian Mullen, BBA chief executive, said: ‘Mortgage lending reached a new high in March, compensating for weaker consumer credit, it might be that this reflects credit choices available ‘ secured borrowing may be cheaper than a personal loan, for example.’
