A&L pulls a Northern Crock

Alliance & Leicester to pull £4bn from UK mortgage market

Alliance & Leicester is on course to reduce its mortgage book by 10pc this year, pulling as much as £4bn out of the market in a move that will add to the shortage of deals for home buyers. Britain's seventh largest mortgage lender revealed today that its mortgage balance fell £1.5bn in the first four months of year to £41.2bn.

  • Oh dear.

    And these are one of the mainstay’s of the Buy to Let market aren’t they?

    Incidentally, I was listening to some lady at David Loyd the other day saying that she had to remortgage and couldn’t sell her BTL’s. I wonder how many more like her and how long it can go on….?
