The amount of money lent for mortgages may have been at its highest level since 2008 last year, but it`s still way down on the peak level which occurred the year before.
Council of Mortgage Lenders` (CML) figures show that the total reached £177 billion in 2013, up 49 per cent on the previous year. However, there`s still some way to go before it reaches 2007`s £363 billion or even 2008`s £253 billion.
Looking more closely at the figures and both the December and fourth quarter results were impressive, which could suggest that the housing market is building up a head of steam, but Bob Pannell from the CML notes that "lenders expect little if any boost to borrower demand this quarter".
However, the body adds that it anticipates a constant need for mortgage funding, due to a number of factors, such as the continuation of the government`s Help to Buy and Help to Buy 2 schemes and more people finding jobs.
That said, the availability of funds to feed this demand could be reduced following the withdrawal of the government`s Funding for Lending scheme for domestic purchases.
