(RTTNews) - UK mortgage approvals declined to a seven-year low in March as measures to contain the spread of coronavirus started to affect housing market, data from the Bank of England showed Friday.

Mortgage approvals fell to 56,161 in March from 73,674 in February. This was the lowest level since March 2013 and below forecast of 60,000.

Secured lending increased by GBP 4.8 billion compared to economists' forecast of GBP 3.5 billion. The annual growth in secured lending rose to 3.6 percent.

At the same time, households repaid GBP 3.8 billion of consumer credit in March, the largest net repayment since the series began.

Businesses borrowed GBP 34.1 billion of loans from banks in March. The annual growth came in at 8.2 percent.
