Mortgage lending to people buying a new home slumped in July, as consumers appeared in a cautious mood.
Mortgages to people moving up or down the property ladder totalled just £10.6bn during the month. That’s 13 per cent less than in June and 12 per cent down on a year earlier. First-time buyers also sat on their hands, with lending to this group diving by 19% compared with the previous month to £4.4bn.
But record low mortgage rates lured those looking to switch home loans into action, with remortgaging equalling the seven-year high of £6bn.
