Gross lending by building societies and other mutuals increased once again in March, and was 8% higher compared to March 2012. Net lending also increased and remained positive, a feature of sector performance for 18 consecutive months now.
In its budget submission to HM Treasury, the Building Societies Association calls for the Government to deliver measures that will boost house building and the economy; protect homeowners at risk of flooding, and assist hard-pressed savers.
Commenting on the publication of the second report by the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, Adrian Coles, Director-General of the Building Societies Association said:
Of the 39 lenders which have signed up for the Bank's Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS), two thirds are mutual lenders, primarily building societies. Five mutuals had drawn £2.3 billion of funds from the FLS by the end of 2012, 17% of the total amount drawn. However, during Q4 many of the mutual lenders who have signed up for the scheme were finalising the processes for drawing funds, and are likely to do so before it closes next year.
