UK Mortgage Market Reports

IRN Research have published three reports on the UK mortgage market. These reports show that in 2017, existing home owners increased their gross new borrowing by almost 11%, mainly reflecting a sharp rise in remortgaging and lifetime mortgage activity, with the number of mortgages taken out growing by almost 9%. First-time buyer activity expanded at a slower rate in 2017 (but had grown much fast in 2016), with the number of First Time Buyer (FTB) mortgages taken out increasing by almost 6% and the amount borrowed riding by around 7%. The real laggards of the market were buy-to-let (BTL) mortgages. In 2017, the value of new BTL advances fell by around 12% and the market is expected to stagnate with little real growth in 2018. Also, in 2017, the number of BTL mortgages taken out fell by over 10%.

The three mortgage reports – First-Time Buyer Mortgages (37pp), Buy-to-Let Mortgages (44pp) and Existing Home Owner Mortgages (40pp) – all consider the market size and trends of their respective markets and provide forecasts up until 2022. In addition, each report looks at the structure of the market, discusses the drivers of demand, the factors changing how the market operates and key developments with the market. They also look at the main mortgage providers. The reports together provide a comprehensive overview of the UK residential mortgage sector.

The three reports (PDF) are available directly from IRN Research, priced at £250 each. UK sterling price is plus VAT so total price is £300. If two reports can be purchased for £450 (£540 inc VAT) and all three for £600 (£720).
