10/12/2017 - 06:04:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - UK banks tightened conditions for unsecured lending to households and are expected to reduce its availability significantly at the end of the year, the latest Credit Conditions Survey from the Bank of England showed Thursday.

Meanwhile, availability of secured credit to households increased slightly in three months to mid-September and lenders forecast its availability to be unchanged in the fourth quarter.

The availability of unsecured credit to households declined as banks tightened credit scoring criteria for granting both credit card and other unsecured loans. A significant decrease in availability is expected for the fourth quarter.

Further, default rates on credit card lending were reported to have increased slightly, while those on other unsecured lending increased significantly. A further slight increase was expected for credit card lending only in fourth quarter.

According to the survey, the overall availability of credit to the corporate sector was reported to have been unchanged again in the third quarter.

Demand for secured lending for house purchases dropped slightly in the third quarter. Lenders expected total demand for secured lending for house purchase to be unchanged in the fourth quarter.

Demand for both credit card and other unsecured lending products was reported to be unchanged in third quarter, and was expected to be unchanged again in the fourth quarter.

Lenders logged a fall in demand for corporate lending for businesses of all sizes - and small businesses in particular. Demand from all businesses was expected to be unchanged in the fourth quarter.

The survey was conducted between August 21 and September 8.
