Latest Mew Data From Bank Of England

Recommended Posts

My Council Tax has been jacked up to just over 1900 pounds. Many would have to MEW to pay such a vast sum. Looks like NuLabour is going to continue to force people to borrow long term to get out of short term debt. The HPI monster is now feeding on itself.

DeJavu 1989 is right.

Bank of England MEW Data Q4 2005

£m

2004 Q4 7,903

2005 Q1 6,154

Q2 9,950

Q3 8,858

Q4 11,806

Looks like there is some serious debt consolidation going on out there.

Just revisit the spin put on the figures for overall mortgage lending for December 2005 as per BBC.

We can now see that they (The Council of Mortgage Lenders) hail a 25% increase in lending over Dec 2004 but that from these figures Mewing had increased by nearly 50%!

The spin put on it was;

'According to Duncan Pownall, spokesman for Bradford & Bingley, mortgage lending picking up in the latter part of 2005 could indicate first-time buyers returning to the property market.

"Strength in the housing market combined with buyers realisation that prices will not significantly fall has encouraged more and more people to step onto the property ladder," he said. ' <_<

Those who spend more each month than they earn will inevitably drift deeper into debt. I don't find these figures particularly surprising. Many are 'consolidating' unsecured debt into secured debt as we speak.

Millions of people are unwittingly getting poorer every day in this 'miracle' economy.

Well. apart from the MEW because people have died , and the MEW when people downsize, and the STR Mewing.....

Exactly the same pattern as the last crash....

Well spotted, only it is much larger obviously due to extra "value" of houses it should soon fall off a cliff.

Good God the whole thing is ROTTEN. Bankers lending into existence huge sums of money and then buying their 80ft yachts with the interest payments, NuLabour crushing the middle class under inflation-busting tax rises, dodgy politicos flogging peerages, Government shovelling hundreds of millions of tax money into the hands of the likes of Crapita for IT systems that don't work, and a population slowly sinking into a sort of debt serfdom the likes of which we have never seen.

When a bank lends in the form of MEW, the loan is NEW money: it is NOT someone elses deposit that is being lent, it is new money. It serves to enslave the idiot who is doing it, but it also causes whopping inflation as the total supply of money in the economy goes up, and this punishes the rest of us.

Make no mistake, the financiers are the ones running the show and always have been. People are becoming debt slaves to a narrow elite who have the ability to create money from nothing. WHY are we not debating the real issue behind HPI? The way money is supplied to the economy as debt, and the fact that the banks, by swishing numbers back and forth on a screen, are gradually laying claim to more and more of the produce of the economy? We all like to think that we are a home-owning country....********!! The financial sector is gradually laying claim to a larger and larger percentage of the country's housing stock.

Meanwhile, bonus season in the city is reported and noone bats an eyelid - why the f**k do you think these ba5tards pay themselves so much!?!?!

WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

Can you elaborate?, I don't believe the catagories you describe relate to the MEW figure.

People don't MEW when they STR they sell and settle the mortgage in full.

People who downsize don't MEW either. They sell up and then either buy for cash or a smaller mortgage... still not in MEW figures.

People who die also have their mortgage settled if outstanding by the house being sold/repossessed etc. Still not in MEW figures.

A bit of straw clutching there KON??

must be debt consolidation - not that many new cars compared with the past and retail trade not too healthy either. where else can it be spent?

Spotted a Halifax MEW ad in this months 'What Car' magazine last night. Not actually seen any in a car mag suggesting buy that nice new motor on page 10 with your house equity and pay it off over the next 20 twenty years before :lol:

they are all examples of MEW.

1)Dad dies, equity released from housing buy someone buying it with a mortgage, Therefore MEW

2) sell house to person with mortgage , buy a smaller house put the change in the bank

3) Sell house to person with mortgage, move into rental, put money into bank

All examples of MEW

Not an example

1) Increase mortgage, use money to buy BTL

Mortgage equity withdrawal is borrowing that is secured on the housing stock but not invested in it. It doesn't matter if the borrower is the beneficiary of the equity withdrawal or not

People don't MEW when they STR they sell and settle the mortgage in full.

People who downsize don't MEW either. They sell up and then either buy for cash or a smaller mortgage... still not in MEW figures.

People who die also have their mortgage settled if outstanding by the house being sold/repossessed etc. Still not in MEW figures.

Nope, they are all examples of MEW

STR is an example of MEW, People downsizing is MEW, and if people die, and the house is sold, then the equity released is MEW

All perfectly valid MEW examples, no straws just facts.

None of the above are quoted in the MEW figure and therefore not valid MEW examples, I don't think there is a need for me to explain why to the majority on here.

What you are describing is profit taking not mortgage equity withdrawal, ie: extracting equity from the value of a property.

Lets leave it at that before you embarass yourself further.

by your own definition STR cannot be MEW as there is no borrowing secured on any house. STR is a settlement. Same applies to inheritence.

Yep, they are all examples of MEW, and I'm really not the one that is embarassing myself. And I do think I need to explain to SOME people here.

You could either ask any economist or in fact anyone that has any understanding of the figures. what you can't do just go making up new defintions just to suite your POV!

I suggest you read here, page 101 (Ohh Look LTS and Trading down!)

http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publication...in/qb010105.pdf

Table A

Ways of withdrawing and injecting equity

Withdrawals

Last-time sales A seller does not buy a new property, so the proceeds

of the sale are released from the housing market.

Trading down A seller moves to a cheaper property but reduces the

mortgage by less, to leave a cash sum.

Over-mortgaging A moving owner-occupier increases their mortgage by

more than the difference between the old and new

house prices.

Remortgaging A borrower takes a new mortgage and increases their

debt without moving properties or improving the

property to the same extent.

Further advances and A borrower raises a further advance on an existing

second mortgages mortgage or takes a second mortgage without

improving the property to the same extent.

You are totally wrong

You state"STR is an example of MEW, People downsizing is MEW, and if people die, and the house is sold, then the equity released is MEW"

If you STR you do not have a mortgage , if you move to a smaller house anf pocket the change and if someone dies and you sell the house you pocket the money. The clue is in the wording MEW . It means you have to increase your mortgage. All the examples you give you are lowering it??

Yes there is, the person who buys the house will nearly always have a mortgage...

Hang on. STRing or moving down to cheaper property does release equity sure. BUT it is NOT

MORTGAGE EQUITY WITHDRAWL.

No as a STR you don't, but the person who purchased off you does. So the Market reflects this as MEW

I really do know what I'm talking about on this. You do not have to increase your Mortgage, but the overall market does...

Therefore STR sells house for £250,000 and takes out £100,000. FTB who buys the house has a mortgage of £200K and equity of £50K. Therefore the STR has MEWed £100,000 and the new buyer has injected £50K (Negative MEW), into the housing market. Giving a net MEW of £50K

When the STR comes to buy and reinvests the £100,000 this will be counted as equity injection (Negative MEW)
