MAY KEY POINTS


MAY 2007 COMPARED WITH APRIL 2007:

HOUSING FINANCE FOR OWNER OCCUPATION

  • The total value of owner occupied housing commitments excluding alterations and additions increased by 0.2% (seasonally adjusted) and the trend series rose 1.3%.


PERSONAL FINANCE
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total personal finance commitments rose by 2.2%. This increase was due to a rise in revolving credit commitments (up 5.6%), more than offsetting a fall in fixed lending commitments (down 1.4%).
  • The trend series for the value of total personal finance commitments rose 0.3% due to a rise in both fixed lending commitments (up 0.5%) and revolving credit commitments (up 0.2%).


COMMERCIAL FINANCE
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total commercial finance commitments rose by 1.1%. This increase was due to a rise in both revolving credit commitments (up 2.4%) and fixed lending commitments (up 0.3%).
  • The trend series for the value of total commercial finance commitments rose 0.4%. This was due to a rise in revolving credit commitments (up 1.5%), which was partially offset by a decrease in fixed lending commitments (down 0.4%).


LEASE FINANCE
  • Lease finance commitments (seasonally adjusted) decreased by 3.2%. The lease finance commitments trend series rose by 1.5%.
