CML: Stamp duty effect felt well beyond first-time buyer market

As expected, the end of the stamp duty concession led to a surge in activity in the mortgage market in March, according to new data released today by the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

The full release is attached and available from the website here:

Full historical tables are available on request from the press office.

1. The Council of Mortgage Lenders' members are banks, building societies and other lenders who together undertake around 95% of all residential mortgage lending in the UK. There are 11.3 million mortgages in the UK, with loans worth over £1.2 trillion.

3. The Council of Mortgage Lenders does not publish statistics for mortgage approvals. The data in our monthly Regulated Mortgage Survey and gross lending press releases relate to mortgage advances only. A mortgage approval is the firm offer to a customer of a specific amount of credit secured against a particular property. A mortgage advance is the total amount of loan actually provided to the buyer, by the lender. Please see the mortgage statistics timeline on our website for further information.

4. The April 2012 data will be released on Thursday 14 June 2012.
