From 1st July the Council of Mortgage Lenders is integrated into a new trade association, UK Finance. For the time being, all UKF mortgage information will continue to be published on this website, and UKF member-only mortgage information will only be available here.

UK Finance represents around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payment-related services. The new organisation takes on most of the activities previously carried out by the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Financial Fraud Action UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association. Please go to for wider content and updates from UK Finance.

The UK mortgage market is worth £1.3 trillion, representative of 11.1 million mortgages, and is the largest in Europe in terms of amount lent per year and the total value of outstanding loans. 

We collect extensive mortgage lending data from our members and this is available to members and associates.  We also release selected data to the public every month as part of our media activities.
