U.K. Mortgage Approvals Increased ‘Slightly’ in June, BBA Says

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. mortgage approvals rose “slightly” in June as consumers pushed back expectations for the Bank of England to increase interest rates, the British Bankers’ Association said.

The number of mortgages granted to homebuyers to purchase a property rose to 31,747 from 30,803 in May, the London-based group said in an e-mailed statement today. The reading is down 6 percent from a year earlier.

“Banks continue to lend for house purchase but the weak mortgage market is self-evident,” BBA Statistics Director David Dooks said in the statement.
