Mortgage lending at an 11-month high in October

Gross mortgage lending increased to an estimated £12.9 billion in October

The figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders report that lending is 4% higher than October 2011.

A CML spokesperson pointed to the Funding for Lending Scheme as a contributor.

What does this mean for the market? The reality is that this may be the result of a slower than anticipated September, which showed a fall in mortgage lending. However, even so it is clear that there is at least some activity in the market and as such, is a positive sign.
