FEBRUARY KEY POINTS


FEBRUARY 2008 COMPARED WITH JANUARY 2008:

HOUSING FINANCE FOR OWNER OCCUPATION
  • The total value of owner occupied housing commitments excluding alterations and additions decreased 0.2% (trend) and the seasonally adjusted series fell 6.0%.


PERSONAL FINANCE
  • The trend series for the value of total personal finance rose 1.4%, due to a rise in both revolving credit commitments (up 1.6%) and fixed lending commitments (up 1.0%).
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total personal finance commitments rose 0.9%. This was due to a rise in revolving credit commitments (up 2.4%), which was partly offset by a fall in fixed lending commitments (down 0.8%).


COMMERCIAL FINANCE
  • The trend series for the value of total commercial finance commitments rose 0.9%. This was due to a rise in fixed lending commitments (up 1.7%), which was partly offset by a fall in revolving credit commitments (down 0.7%).
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total commercial finance commitments fell 10.4%. This decrease was due to a fall in both fixed lending commitments (down 13.8%) and revolving credit commitments (down 2.8%).


LEASE FINANCE
