There were 68,076 approvals for
house purchase mortgage in April, the Bank of England has reported – the most
since February last year.
The “seasonally adjusted” figure –
ie, not the actual amount – was up from March’s figure of 61,945, February’s
62,304 and January’s figure of 60,991.
It is also higher than the average
number of loan approvals for house purchase over the previous six months. That
figure was 60,679.
Some analysts have been surprised
by the pre-election bounce in lending, with a number having said that the
housing market stalled in the run-up to May’s election.
