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.

Welcome to our media hub. One of our core activities on behalf of our members is to represent lenders’ collective views on matters of common interest. We aim to deliver a regular flow of news, data and insight on the UK mortgage market.

We hope you find our press releases and articles useful.

For all media enquiries, please contact the press office on 0207 416 6750 or email
