    “The CML’s mortgage figures for the three months to February, at a combined 163,000, are the lowest for any quarter since early 1992 during the depths of the last recession.

    There were just 18,000 loans to first-time buyers in February, the lowest figure since monthly records started in 2002.

    And the level of first-time lending to home buyers over the past three months is now at its lowest since the first quarter of 1975”

    This all points to a crash at least a big as the last one……
