Enterprise Finance comments on today's Land Registry House Price Index PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 28 August 2015

Danny Waters, chief executive officer of Enterprise Finance, comments on today's Land Registry House Price Index data.

Mr Waters said: “UK house prices are now back where they were before the financial crash and for once it’s not London at the forefront of value growth, but the East region. Sales volumes are down on the equivalent period last year which would suggest that the sounder economic footing the UK now finds itself on has yet to translate into increased activity, but there is still every expectation of a strong second half of the year.

“Encouragingly, repossession volumes continue to tumble which shows that fewer borrowers are saddling themselves with loans they can’t repay and that the improving employment picture means less homeowners are running into difficulties.

“Rising house prices may be making things difficult for prospective homeowners, but it’s pleasing news for those who have already established a foothold on the property ladder. However, the availability of finance – both in terms of mortgage lending and more specialist types of borrowing – and the attractiveness of the rates on offer offers plenty solace to those looking to access capital.”
