Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) has today published the latest figures from the BPFI Mortgage Approvals Report for January 2021. The following are the key elements:
Speaking on the publication of the data, Brian Hayes, Chief Executive, BPFI stated: “Our latest mortgage approvals data shows mortgage approval activity performed well in January particularly when we take into account that level 5 restrictions were in place throughout the month. We saw continued year-on-year growth in both approval volumes and value especially amongst first-time buyers and mover purchasers. This points to a solid pipeline for drawdown activity as we move in to 2021. It’s also interesting to note the 10% year-on-year increase in both the volume and value in mortgage switching which demonstrates that lenders are continuing to support customers through the switching process.”
